Bioware have announced that their highly populated massively multiplayer online RPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic, also known as SWTOR, is going to receive a free-to-play option for their players later on this Fall.
It seems that they are hoping the free-to-play model will help bolster player numbers in what is considered to be an epic MMORPG...
“Since launch we have been adding new content and refining The Old Republic at a breakneck pace based on the feedback from our fans. We believe we are in a position to help improve the service even more, not only by continuing to add new content, but also by expanding the game to many more Star Wars fans, increasing the populations on worlds and the vibrancy of the community.” Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer of Star Wars: The Old Republic said.
Free-to-play players will receive eight iconic Star Wars character class story lines, first 50 levels for free with certain restrictions to the new content and advanced player features that are unlock able via Cartel Coins, while subscription based player unrestricted access to all the features via the ongoing subscription or the redeeming a game time card.
People can still pay their $14.99 a month if they wish for the extra juicy content offerred to paying gamers, but otherwise they will be opening the F2P access portal to any and all. To see what you will be entitled to take a look here for the comparison run down between F2P and Paying members of Star Wars The Old Republic.
