Subscribers to SWTOR will have the chance to start playing during the expansion’s early access on December 3rd, 2013. Preferred status players can join in on January 13th followed by Free-to-Play players on February 4th. Players with an active subscription by November 1st will also gain a free Galactic Starfighter early Gunship, a custom Gunship paint job, new titles, and two pilot suits.

The new expansion will, surprisingly, be free to SWTOR players. In the meantime, check out the new Conflict Rising trailer and Galactic Starfighter expansion page to learn more about what’s available for each account type.
