Power To The (Solo) Players: SWTOR’s F2P Restrictions

Hmmm. Mmmmm. Ehhhhh. Errrrrr. Also harumph. Oh, hello, didn't see you there. When I enter my Contemplate-O-Sphere, I tend to just lose track of the world around me and emit a series of guttural droning sounds - eyes wide yet unseeing, as though I'm possessed by some kind of brain ghost. I believe many of you call it "having an idea." Only I'm having many…

Bioware Reveal SWTOR’s “Terror From Beyond”

SWTOR's fresh content mill continues to crank on the missions for light-saberists and chums. Speaking here, Bioware's Austin bossbloke Matt Bromberg said: "We’re committed to: about every six weeks, doing a major update for the game -- which would be a new Warzone, a new Operation, a new Flashpoint, a new event -- and to doing that on a really frequent cadence, every six weeks."…

Inevitable Disturbance In The Force: SWTOR Goes F2P

Well, that took all of about a fortnight. Pretty much everyone called this one, given the age of the expensive monthly subscription game seems to be over, bar a few very particular exceptions. So it is that the struggling juggernaut that is EA/Bioware's MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic is to join the rapidly-swelling ranks of free to play. They've just announced that play up…

You May Recognize SWTOR’s Newest Companion

And it'll be terribly awkward for you, because it's not who you think it is. You'll be like, "Hey, HK-47, how's it going?" And HK-51 will be like... well, I don't know what he'll be like, because he's a new character. He and his exceedingly murderous brethren are, however, something of a throwback to cut content from KOTOR 2, so you might not end up totally…

Lite Saber: More Free SWTOR, This Time For All

Star Wars: The Old Republic now has a free trial, hooray! Anyone is eligible, which is a good thing, and the main limiting factor is that it caps you to level 15 (the level cap is 50 for subscribers, so this will get you off the starting world to Coruscant, but not much further.) PvP and flashpoints are also available in the trial. There's a…

SWTOR Wants You Back. Yes You, Steve

"Come Back and Play at No Charge* for Up to 7 Days!" Says the SWTOR site. Ha, what's that asterisk in there? Why it's the expiration date on this offer, which is July 17th. And this is an offer for lapsed subs only, of course. Returning folk will no doubt be thrilled to "receive an exclusive in-game pet, the Gannifari [pictured], and 25 Black Hole…

Old Republic & Skyrim On Same Sex Couples

You'd imagine gaming would lead the way on more liberal values, but it's surprising still how rare LGBT characters are in games. The compromise tends to be Sims-like universal polysexuality, almost no characters deliberately written as anything other than straight, with rare exceptions. One such company that tends to recognise a same-sex relationship is BioWare, which makes the news that The Old Republic won't be…
