Fans of SWTOR will be receiving a nice gift this fall when it becomes a free to play game. But does this mean the imminent death of the game? I am not so sure, they are actually keeping a subscription based service in which they will receive “Cartel Coins”. The Cartel coins will essentially be an in game monetary system.
Some of the updates we can expect when they go free to play are:
Operation: Terror From Beyond
Fight unseen horrors on the new Gree-controlled planet of Asation as you seek to slow the rise of the Dread Masters!
Warzone: Ancient Hypergate
Seek control of the new planet of Asation in an all new player-versus-player Warzone which introduces brand new game mechanics.
New Space Combat Missions
Fly your ship to victory in 10 challenging new Level 50+ Space Combat encounters.
Below are some items that the Paid subscribers will receive:
Cartel Coins can be used for the purchase of great in-game items through the Cartel Market, coming soon! Loyal subscribers can spend their Cartel Coin rewards on items, including:
Kowakian Monkey Lizard Pet
Get one of these lively little mascots, a favorite of the Hutts.
Sith Meditation Throne
Harness the Dark Side of the Force™ in the most menacing manner with your own personal Meditation Throne.
Lost Helm of Darth Nihilus
Strike fear into your enemies’ hearts with this legendary mask from the mysterious Sith Lord who stalked the galaxy in the years after the Jedi Civil War.
In my opinion, if that is all the paid subscribers will get, I would play for free. Of course, free players will have limits on what they can do, such as limited character creation options. What are your thoughts?
