May the 4th is Star Wars Day, the unofficial holiday for Star Wars fans everywhere to celebrate their favorite fiction. Star Wars: The Old Republic is no exception, as a May the 4th promotion being run by the MMORPG is granting players with free in-game gifts, double XP and more.
From now until Monday, May 8th, everyone who logs into the MMO will be granted an M4-Y6 Astromech Droid pet (who we will forever refer to as “Sandy”). In addition, there will be double character and Legacy XP granted to all characters from now until Monday, May 14th at 5 pm PDT.
For those who are Twitch Prime members, SWTOR will also offer up an Ultimate Eternal Throne Pack. Twitch Prime members can claim a code that grants all nine chapters of the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion, a level 65 character token, and an AC-PT Walker mount. There are also planned sales in the in-game Cartel Market running through the next two weeks on select dates.
Of course SWTOR was going to run a special event on May the 4th. They’d be silly not to! We are pretty much in love with “Sandy”, and we always like earning double XP, so that’s our check boxes marked. What part of the promotion are you interested in?
