    AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BioWare™, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc.

Players can experience the complete storylines of all eight, iconic Star Wars™ classes, all the way to level 50 for free. This new option complements the existing subscription offering, providing players with maximum flexibility in how they choose to experience Star Wars: The Old Republic.
