As of today, Bioware has announced that SWTOR is officially free-to-play. Along with it comes a new playable area, a new companion, and new quests. What do you think? If you haven't played it, will this get you to try it? If you have played it, do you think the new players will liven things up?

I'm just about to download this and see what all the fuss is about. Oddly, it doesn't seem Origin has caught up to this being free-to-play. I was going to jump into Origin as part of this process as well, just to try it out, since I've never touched it before.

I've been playing this off and on since it came out. It can't keep my interest. There's just not enough to do!

Hey! Apparently my sneaky link worked. Welcome to the site! :)

MMO's have turned around in the past. It's possible that there will be more to do, but it does seem that they made some early mistakes and lost a lot of interest.

It's *still* downloading. I kinda want to try it out. Tomorrow, I guess.

I picked it up cause it just went free. I've heard it doesn't keep people's attention though. It being free to play for me means if it does get boring, I can put it down and not feel as bad because I am not out any money.

That said, it seems my choices in game are somewhat limited but that's not too bad as I am still level 1. :)
