Game Overview

Star wars the old republic is an MMO developed by Bioware. SW:TOR is set further ahead in the starwars canon than Knights of the old republic. You can play as the Republic or as the Empire. With each character that you make you can be either light side or dark side regardless of whether you are Republic or Empire. SW:TOR will become a free to play MMO very soon, hopefully within 2012.

Honestly, dont buy into the haters. This
is a really good and fun game.

They should've just made KotoR3,
would've made them a lot more money. I
hope everyone learned their lesson

I wasn't even considering
buying this game because it was
subscription based. But now that it's
free-to-play, I might buy and play
through the main story, just to satisfy
my curiosity.

is that a record btw? 7 months after
launch and it's now completely free to
play. I know DC:UO was faster but that
was helped by sony online being hacked
and taken down for almost 2 months right
after the game launched.

Even if this
had just cost EA the minimum estimated
dev cost of 200million dollars that is a
cost of $952000 per day for each day of
the 7 months this game was online as a
subscription based game.

That is ofc
not including the costs of running a
fantastic customer support team yelling
at anyone with legit complaints to go
back to wow (which they all seem to have
done) and the costs of hiring a whole
team just to go around msg boards and
forums to build up hype and positivity
for this rubbish.

Bring on KotoR3...

along with free to play til lvl 15 and
the fact that you can buy this in
gamestop here for about 15-20euros now
sales will probably go up a little bit,
but this is a dead duck in terms of
making back the 200-300m spent on voice
acting for it, you really don't need
that much money spent to hire A-List
celebs to voice a quest where you go and
kill 6 space boars. funny out the
comments here from clos3 trying to call
out someone for predicting this would
bomb? oddly hasn't commented much in
the last while, wonder why.

A shame that it has done so little .
I've only played the beta as of yet ,
but i do want to get it at some point .
I really hope it will survive and have a
strong community .
I also hope that it
will not go free to play on one side .
Simply because i hope it will be better
supported that way .
