'Star Wars: The Old Republic' now free-to-play to level 15

BioWare's Star Wars MMO is now free-to-play to level 15.

As promised at E3 2012, BioWare and EA are letting Star Wars fans feel the force of their massively multiplayer online role-playing game for free — up to level 15 — starting today.

The free-to-play trial version of Star Wars: The Old Republic lets players experience the "opening adventures" of the MMO's eight character classes on their Origin World. Access to player-versus-player Warzones and cooperative Flashpoint play is included in the free trial.

Star Wars: The Old Republic's free trial is open to anyone without a previously active game account, including those who have previously taken part in a free weekend trial.

BioWare has indicated it is looking at a free-to-play model for Star Wars: The Old Republic, saying it must "be flexible and adapt to what is going on." The Star Wars MMO currently requires a $14.99 per month subscription to play.
