Star Wars: The Old Republic Goes F2P Today

Today Bioware’s MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic has launched in it’s new Free to Play model.

Cartel Coins have been introduced which will allow players to purchase things such as gear, items that grant an EXP bonus, or the ability to unlock things such as the ability to access guild banks or equip special armor.

Previous subscribers to the game will earn preferred status which is halfway between free users and subscribers, allowing certain things you previously unlocked to still be available on your account.

For more details including subscriber bonuses, head over to the official SWTOR website.
