When Star Wars: The Old Republic launches this December, you’ll have to pay to play. Similar to World of Warcraft’s subscription based service, SWTOR will come bundled with one month of free game time. After that however, you’ll have to pony up each month to continue your intergalactic questing.
At $14.99 per month, the subscription rate should be an easy pill to swallow for those that have paid for other services like WoW in the past, considering that it’s exactly the same cost structure. Getting off of the month to month, and buying in bulk, you’ll get a discount on game time which scales to $13.99 /mo in a three month bundle, and $12.99/mo in a six month bundle.
With so many people claiming that Star Wars: The Old Republic could be the last of its kind when it comes to pricing, what do you think about the costs associated with playing the game. Are you more or less inclined to play SWTOR because of the cost?
