The internet and geek culture sure love its made-up holidays, doesn't it? And so, as we are on the verge of Star Wars Day ("May the fourth be with you"), Star Wars: The Old Republic
is preparing to celebrate by giving away adorable blue astromech droid pets
to its playerbase.
Players who log in any time from April 29th through May 4th will be able to claim the MT-4T droid minipet. SWTOR
will also be hosting a double-XP weekend starting Friday, May 2nd, at 2:00 p.m. EDT and ending on Monday, May 5th, at 3:00 a.m. EDT.
