'Star Wars: The Old Republic' to receive major update every six weeks

Star Wars: The Old Republic gets regular updates every six weeks.

Star Wars: The Old Republic will receive a major update every six weeks, BioWare Austin general manager Matt Bromberg told AusGamer.

"We're committed to: about every six weeks, doing a major update for the game," Bromberg stated, "which would be a new Warzone, a new Operation, a new Flashpoint, a new event - and to doing that on a really frequent cadence, every six weeks. So we're going to stick to that."

Bromberg added that following the game's free-to-play launch this fall, lapsed subscribers will be qualified to receive Cartel Coins, the title's in-game currency, as credit for all the time the player previously subscribed.

Star Wars: The Old Republic will go free-to-play this November, while the first 15 levels of the massively multiplayer game became available free of subscription earlier in July.
