Star Wars: The Old Republic makes the jump to free today

BioWares story-driven MMO from a galaxy far, far away, Star WarsThe Old Republic, is available for no credits starting today. Free players will be subject to some restrictions, but its worth noting that the entirety of all eight class stories, running from level one to level 50, are available without dropping a cent. So if youre only really interested in the KotOR 3-ish content, you shouldnt have to worry about the siren call of the cash shop.

If you havent been following the continuing saga behind this transition, you can read about how the new business model is going to work, and how the restrictions on free players were tweaked thanks to community feedback. And if youre among those who just cant cope with this change, maybe this will make you feel better.

Let us know in the comments if youre planning on returning to TOR or checking out for the first time now that its, you know, free.
