BioWare's "Star Wars: The Old Republic" also known as SWTOR, recently unveiled its Galactic Starfighter Free-to-Play Digital Expansion Access Rewards. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) which is based in the Star Wars universe (a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away) introduced this new expansion for SWTOR fans so that they can experience flying a Galactic Starfighter in space while fighting off enemies with their chosen team (Galactic Republic or Sith Empire). Now, they can even get amazing rewards while playing the game for free including two new pilot suits, the Imperial Battle Ace Pilot Suit (Click HERE to see a photo of it from the "Star Wars: The Old Republic" Web site) and the Republic Squadron Commander Pilot Suit (Click HERE to see a photo of it from the "Star Wars: The Old Republic" Web site) .

According to the official "Star Wars: The Old Republic" Web site, the new SWTOR Galactic Starfighter Free-to-Play Digital Expansion Access Rewards began on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014. However, it doesn't indicate how long this Free-to-Play Access Rewards will last. It just says that it is currently ongoing.

The good news is also announced on SWTOR's Twitter, Facebook and YouTube accounts. Check out SWTOR's tweet below and watch the video above to see the new Galactic Starfighter "Galaxy under Fire" Free-to-Play Launch trailer.

According to the SWTOR YouTube video, you can customise Starfighters and engage in space dogfights in the SWTOR Galactic Starfighter Free-to-Play Digital Expansion. Plus, there are no minimum requirements regarding character levels to play it.

"Experience intense 12v12 free flight dogfighting in space in the new Free-to-Play Star WarsTM: The Old RepublicTM Digital Expansion, Galactic Starfighter," read a statement on the SWTOR Web site.

SWTOR players can get the Imperial Battle Ace Pilot Suit and the Republic Squadron Commander Pilot Suit just by playing the Star Wars MMORPG during this period (Feb. 4, 2014 - onwards).

These Free-to-Play in-game rewards will reportedly be available to all players with a "Star Wars: The Old Republic" account during the Free-to-Play Access Rewards offer period. The new pilot suits will be delivered via in-game mail starting on Feb. 4, 2014. If you just created a SWTOR account, then it will be delivered within two hours.
