Star Wars: The Old Republic free-to-play Nov. 15
BioWare's massively multiplayer online role-playing game adding free option next week, less than a year after launch.
Less than one year after launching as a subscription-based boxed product, Star Wars: The Old Republic will add a free-to-play option November 15. Publisher Electronic Arts confirmed the date today in a tweet.
Those who jump into BioWare's massively multiplayer online role-playing game next week will be able to play as any of the game's eight classes, though some races will be limited. Players will be able to advance to the game's current level cap of 50, but some of the content along the way will either be restricted, including some travel options or the number of player-versus-player warzones gamers can join in a given time, or outright closed off, such as the game's raid-like Operations. These restrictions can be lifted either with microtransactions or subscriptions.
"The reality of the marketplace today...is that the subscription model is a barrier for consumers," BioWare Austin studio general manager Matthew Bromberg said at the time.
