BioWare Eases Up On SWTOR Free-To-Play Restrictions

Posted on Monday, October 29 @ 08:43:23 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

No too long ago, we received the full list of restrictions for those who wish to play Star Wars: The Old Republic without shelling out the extra cash for the monthly subscription. Sadly, the list of "cannots" was quite extensive, leaving many gamers disappointed. In an effort to appease the MMO community, the developer has tweaked the restrictions a bit.

On the SWTOR official forums, lead designer Damion Schubert revealed the changes that will be made, saying: 
Based on community and internal feedback here and further deliberation, we will in short order make the following changes to the Free to Play restrictions: 
  • Free-to-Play players will now get a second quickslot bar. 
  • Free-to-Play players will now be able to do 5 Warzones per week instead of 3. 
  • The Cartel Coin item lock (i.e. temporary bind) will be reduced to 3 days for Free-to-Play players, and 2 days for subscribers.
At the same time, BioWare doesn't want to leave the paying subscribers feeling shortchanged, so striking the right balance is undoubtedly a challenge. "It is important conversely that the subscription offers subscribers strong, tangible benefits over the Free-to-Play experience. We value our subscribers greatly, and they are crucial to the success of Star Wars: the Old Republic," Schubert added.
