Star Wars: The Old Republic Will Be Free-To-Play This Fall


Posted July 31, 2012 - By Nikole Zivalich


BioWare has announced their MMO, Star War: The Old Republic, will be free-to-play beginning this November. The free-to-play feature will give gamers access to the first 50 levels and all eight playable and character classes. There will be some limitations with the free-to-play model. Gamers who are playing the free-to-play SWTOR model will be able to purchase items they lack with Cartel Coins.

A subscription option will still be available for those who want to access higher-level content and unlimited game access.

"Players want flexibility and choice. The subscription-only model presented a major barrier for a lot of people who wanted to become part of The Old Republic™ universe," said Matthew Bromberg, GM of BioWare Austin.

SWTOR will go one sale this August for about $15, including a one-month free trial.

BioWare has reported a steady decline of subscriptions for SWTOR since its release in late 2011. Many have speculated the MMO would eventually become a free-to-play game. Are you surprised by their announcement?
