Star Wars: The Old Republic goes free-to-play in one week

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

As you may or may not have heard, BioWare is on the verge of launching a new free-to-play option for Star Wars: The Old Republic. On the latest of the developer blogs on the game’s website, the team in charge of bringing F2P to The Old Republic announced that things are coming along smoothly and nearing completion.

The developer also took the time to remind everyone of the two main rules that will factor into the new model for the MMO. First off, the game will be free-to-play, but only up to level 50. This will allow frugal-minded players to enjoy the majority of the storyline and side quests SWTOR has to offer, all without paying a cent. The catch is that free-to-play players will earn XP more slowly, while several gameplay aspects are limited.

The second rule BioWare listed off is that nothing will change for current subscribers in the transition to the semi-free-to-play model. Those who still pay monthly to go adventuring across the galaxy will be able to continue doing so without any interruption or degradation of their experience.

In fact, the upcoming update will bring new goodies for SWTOR’s subscribers, such as two more quick slot bars and a new purchasable Cargo Hold tab. In addition, active subscribers who’ve signed on prior to the launch of the free-to-play option will receive a special grant of Complimentary Cartel Coins for use in the Cartel Market. The size of the grant depends on how long one has been a subscriber. You can find out how much coin your time will earn you via this link.

The launch of The Old Republic’s free-to-play option will take place next Thursday, November 15. Are any of you guys interested in subscribing or going free-to-play? Feel free to let us know in the comment box below.
