EA and Bioware are celebrating the recent transition to a Free to Play option in Star Wars: The Old Republic with a brand new trailer. Players now have the choice between paying a monthly subscription fee for unlimited access to Star Wars The Old Republic. Alternatively, players can play for free with several restrictions in place. They can use either micro-transactions to remove certain restrictions and gain preferred status or transition seamlessly into a full monthly subscription.
Players who originally purchased the game and allowed their subscriptions to lapse will immediately gain Preferred Status and a complimentary Cartel Coin grant. A website explaining all the restrictions for free to play players is found here.
