SWTOR wil now be F2P coming Fall

Post by Red-X on Tue Jul 31, 2012 8:05 pm

BioWare has announced their MMO, Star War: The Old Republic, will be free-to-play beginning this fall. 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?

I guess cute is one way to put it lol...but anyway...well then I'm definitely going to be getting SWTOR then. I probably was going to get it even if it wasn't free to play,

We need to go over what server we will all join on though, or just simply have the group in general like a mini community. which is fine

Whenever you get enough people to get that official forum just have people supply the server(s) they're on beside the characters they have.
