Bioware is doing everything to not let their first ever MMO die a horrible death.
As most of you know, they already announced earlier that they will make their MMO free to play in an effort to keep it going...
Star Wars: The Old Republic launched on 20th December 2011 and was supposed to take over the throne of World of Warcraft. At first, most gamers were pleased and excited as they started the game. This was mainly because of the leveling process that was the backbone of this game. Everything beyond that lacked the same early flair, and as a result many players quit quickly and eventually Bioware removed the monthly 15 dollar subscription fee. Now you may download & play for free.
They now continue with their efforts to bring this game back to life and make it a success. Matt Bromberg, general manager of Bioware, recently said the following in an interview with Ausgamers: "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."
If this will give the boost the game that it needs is the question. Perhaps the flux of new players combined with new content will satisfy the new players in a way that they bring over their friends. Or it might attract a large playerbase from another MMO, which seems unlikely though.
