SWTOR Going Free this Fall
Though not totally unexpected after recent reports, it now appears official that Star Wars The Old Republic will be adopting a new business model this coming fall. Subscribers prior to August 1st and especially Collector's Edition purchasers will receive bonus rewards as thanks for their dedication to the game. New players will be able to play for free in the future as well as purchase extra goodies from what is being called the "Cartel Market." Though information is still limited, you can check out the new free teaser page to catch a glimpse of some of the upcoming content being added, or head over to the FAQ to see exactly how this may impact you.
