Did You Hear that Star Wars: The Old Republic is Going Free to Play in the Fall?
I haven't played the game myself. I do keep up with MMO news though, and it's really not that surprising. They made their initial hit of money off sales. Hybrid f2p/p2p models actually make more money in the long run, that helps keep the game running for a few extra years. The trade off is the f2p players usually aren't very good. Either way, I'm going to play Wildstar or something else later on down the road. =-P
I saw an article on it as I logged on this morning and came to brag about its failure here. While many games that go F2P are good and all that, this is Bioware and EA - you know, Age of Reckoning, Wrath of Heroes.... what will this do that makes other games different? What will this do that keeps their reputation above ground?
It's a good idea but I doubt this is going to change anything. I'll give it a try when it becomes F2P, but I won't bother paying past the lv.15 cap. Not when I can pay for quality.
yes, and the game itself isnt' that expensive anymore. I just got it at best buy for 10 bucks and got back into it. especially since it will be free to play, i think a lot more people are going to get back into this fall.
