Star Wars: The Old Republic Is Now (Somewhat) F2P

Old Republic seems to be suffering setback after setback. In an effort to drum up players, the Star Wars MMO has become free-to-play — albeit — temporarily. Instead of axing the subscription and offering micro-transactions, a notion below the status of the game, gamers can play free up until level 15. At that point, you will be able to keep playing, but not level-up without a paid subscription.

Requiring no payment method, the offer extends only to new Old Republic accounts. Players who have participated in previous free trials can again take part in this one. Head over here to sign up for the trial.

Hopefully this gives the MMO the boost it needs, as it’s sad to see something so ambitious struggle.
