BioWare Considering Making SWTOR Completely Free-To-Play

Posted on Friday, June 15 @ 09:40:55 PST by Keri_Honea


BioWare announced at E3 last week that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be free-to-play for the first 15 levels, but this may be just the beginning for the MMO's FTP venturing.

So we are looking at free-to-play but I can’t tell you in much detail. We have to be flexible and adapt to what is going on.”

Considering how MMOs are struggling all over, the free-to-play option is probably the smartest for BioWare at this point. It will be interesting to see how far they take it, and if the FTP-model will become an almost mandatory model for any MMO.
