Free to play if its done right can work really well, i've seen a few were you can play the game as you go and obtain credits (for purchasing things that cost money) for free, obviously takes a bit of grinding but it can be done, i'll be checking this out also, had a shot of a free weekend earlier in the year and i thought it was a great game although it felt like a complete WoW clone at times so i never felt putting in for a subscription.

"We want to give our players the freedom to enjoy Star Wars: The Old Republic when and how they want,"



So, Origin is optional? o.0

I might be wrong here but during my free weekend i can't recall using origin for it, it had its own seperate launcher/updater like all the other MMO's

Might check it out. Is it the same as other MMOs where you have to spend hours upon hours killing bees and wolves in the beginning to level up a bit or are there real missions from the beginning? Tried Lord Of The Rings Online and the first few hours bored me so much that I just packed it in.
