We talked about the Star Wars The Old Republic: free to play option when it was first mentioned in August. EA today announced the Star Wars: The Old Republic: free to play option will be arriving 15th November 2012. The new free to play option will allow players to experience the first 50 levels of all character storylines for free! All players will receive Complimentary Cartel Coins plus a one-time grant of 250 Complimentary Cartel Coins! If you’re a former subscriber, like myself, if you reactive your subscription by 20th December (11:59am CDT)you’ll be granted Complimentary Cartel Coins for prior paid months up to November 15, 2012.
Is it enough to get you back in the game? I personally will play the free levels and see if there is enough to get me parting with that hard earned money for a regular monthly subscription.
Below is a trailer showcasing the latest update:
