Star Wars: The Old Republic Goes Free-To-Play Nov. 15

We’ve finally got the date for when Star Wars: The Old Republic makes the transition to free-to-play, and it’s happening sooner than we might have thought — Nov. 15.

That’s when players will be able to take on the entire story campaign of SWTOR for free, without paying a cent. There are a number of limits on the free version of the game, however, but many of those elements can be restored on an a la carte basis by paying for Cartel Coins.

And speaking of Cartel Coins, if you remain a subscriber to SWTOR, you’ll receive a number of free Cartel Coins for your trouble. In fact, BioWare and Electronic Arts are running a deal that if you bother to re-subscribe, you’ll get a bunch of Cartel Coins for however long you were originally subscribed. You can get more details from this post over at

Take it from me…. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME on this game.

I have played from launch, up until my sub ran out last week. I had so much invested in this game, but it just is hopeless. FU EA

“This game sucks! It only took me 11 months of continuous subscription and play to suddenly figure out that I was wasting my time.”

I mean, no one was forcing you to play it that long. If you don’t like it that’s cool, but why bother posting a comment that paints you as a complete moron?

Sep your’s is a mentality that I will never understand.

If you hated this game so much I do not understand why you would keep playing, let alone paying for it, for almost an entire year.

If you truly hated it so why did you keep coming back??
