BioWare plans on upping their level of support for SWTOR as it transitions into a free to play game. BioWare Austin General Manager, Matt Bromberg, confirmed in an interview with AusGamers, they plan on releasing a content update every six weeks for those playing Star Wars: The Old Republic. These updates would add Warzones, new Operations and more.
"We’re committed to: about every six weeks, doing a major update for the game -- which would be a new Warzone, a new Operation, a new Flashpoint, a new event -- and to doing that on a really frequent cadence, every six weeks. So we’re going to stick to that."
"As well as the free-to-play launch -- which is coming in the fall -- we announced that subscribers who have lapsed are already qualified to get Cartel Coins, which will be the in-game currency in the game once free-to-play launches," he added of bringing back lost players. "So you get credit, not just for becoming a subscriber now, going forward, but also for all the time that you were a subscriber, you get more credits and more coin. So we’re hoping that that will encourage people to come back to the game and try it now."
Star Wars: The Old Republic has had an uphill battle, and I am curious to see how the game fairs with the F2P model. I hope they have tons of success, almost as much as I hope they release a MAC version. Seriously though, I don't have access to the PC I used to play SWTOR on and my Sith Sorcerer needs me.
What types of content updates do you hope to see in SWTOR?
