As of right now, BioWare’s Star Wars-based MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, is available as a Free-to-Play title.
It’s been a long time coming, but “there has never been a better time to start playing with us,” says General Manager of BioWare Austin Matthew Bomberg. “We want to give our players the freedom to enjoy Star Wars: The Old Republic when and how they want.”
In addition, BioWare has also released Game Update 1.5: HK-51 Activated. Check out what’s included:
- Get ready for an action-packed adventure to earn control of one of the galaxy’s most deadly Assassins, HK-51. Submerged beneath the icy surface of Belsavis lies a derelict ship and if you are brave enough to venture through the wreckage, you will embark on a mission that ultimately rewards you with a powerful new, yet familiar, ally: the ruthless Assassin Droid, HK-51.
- Explore Section X, a previously untouched area of the prison world of Belsavis. The Dread Masters’ servants are searching for a powerful and ancient weapon. Fly to Section X and secure the target of their search to be richly rewarded.
- Travel to Denova to take on Operation: Explosive Conflict – now with a Nightmare Mode! Teams who complete in this new mode can earn the final pieces of the Dread Guard gear set and a brand new mount that will be sure to cause tank envy!
