Earlier this year there were rumors that suggested that Star Wars: The Old Republic could be going free-to-play. This was later confirmed by EA who announced that the free-to-play option would be arriving this fall. Well the good news is that if you were looking to get your hands on the game but wanted to wait until F2P was launched, you’re in luck as BioWare has officially announced that come November 15th, Star Wars: The Old Republic will finally be F2P. The launch will be simultaneous so all players in all regions will be able to access it.
As for those who have been loyal paying customers, BioWare will be rewarding you guys with all the Complimentary Cartel Coins listed on the Cartel Coin Ledger page, plus a one-time bonus of 250 Complimentary Cartel Coins. The F2P version SWTOR is expected not to offer any limits and will basically play like normal, with all gamers being able to level to 50 and participate in the new Cartel Market. More information on SWTOR going F2P can be found on its website. So, who’s looking forward to SWTOR going F2P next week?
