Newsbrief: Star Wars: The Old Republic will go free-to-play next week, less than a year after the game originally launched as a paid subscription title for PC. The MMORPG will go free-to-play on November 15, after its subscriber numbers began to dwindle. Players will be able to play through the entirety of the game, albeit with a few restrictions on accessing new content and other game features. Those players who are currently paying a subscription to the game will be granted a package of complimentary Cartel Coins. Previously, game monetization expert Ramin Shokrizade examined exactly what happened to the subscription model's great hope, and why the game has been forced to go free-to-play.
