Star Wars The Old Republic Free To Play Detailed

-Jimmy Kovalski

It has been known for a few months now that Star Wars The Old Republic would be going free to play later this year but little else was known. Today EA and Bioware have officially announced what players would be getting depending on if they pay per month or not.

If you still choose to pay per month you will have access to all the game has to offer. All players get access to all of the story and levels 1-50. Free players have limited character creation choices and inventory slots. They also have limited access to Operations, Warzones, Flashpoints, and Space Missions. Warzones, Flashpoints, and Space Missions are limited to three per week for free players, or players can purchase a weekly pass that gives unlimited access to the content in addition to Operations.

Free players also get five revives in the field and can’t equip purple items without purchasing a license. Travel is also more difficult for free players as quick travel has a longer cool-down than for paying players, and free players don’t get an emergency fleet pass.

This seems like free players are going to be heavily handicapped which is the case in most games that have the option to pay or not. So are you guys going to go back or give it a try?
