Star Wars: The Old Republic will be free-to-play starting in July, allowing players to create characters and live out their stories until they reach Level 15.

The promotion, which is similar to World of Warcraft's free-to-play promotion (which goes to Level 20), is a major part of BioWare's plans for the future of the MMORPG.
