So Star Wars: The Old Republic
going free-to-play is about as surprising as Tatooine's twin suns rising over the Dune Sea. The game has bled a considerable amount of subs since its December 2011 launch, and while it's far from a failure, it's also not quite the success that some predicted.
Is a lower entry barrier enough to keep the game relevant, though, particularly in light of Guild Wars 2's
impending launch? It's hard to say, but the next few months sure will be interesting to watch. So what about you, morning crew? Will SWTOR's
new business model draw you (back) into the fold?
