According to Matthew Bromberg, General Manager of BioWare Austin,
“We want to give our players the freedom to enjoy Star Wars: The Old Republic when and how they want; there has never been a better time to start playing with us.”
Players interested in trying out the Free-To-Play option can rejoice because unlike other MMORPG’s, Star Wars: The Old Republic’s F2P doesn’t ask for credit card information. On the other hand, F2P subscribers can only access a number of features including story content.
In order to access features like Secure Trading, Respecialization, Guilds, and Commendations Cap, players must choose from one of the available paid-subscription plans:
- 60 Days for $29.99 (billed once/non-recurring)
- 30 Days for $14.99/month (billed every 30 days)
- 90 Days for $41.97 (billed every 90 days)
- 180 Days for $77.94 (billed every 180 days)
