BioWare boss Ray Muzyka has revealed that the pricing plan for Star Wars: The Old Republic will have “some twists” you won’t see happening.

The exec dropped the nugget at GDC last week to Kotaku.

“[It will] be more of the traditional business model with maybe some twists as well,” say Muzyka.

He didn’t, however, get specific on what those plans will be, but it will be “a good value for their money — and feel that there is a way they actually want to engage in the experience, both in how they play it and how they pay for it. That’s our high-level goal.”

Last week at GDC, Muzyka told VG247 that end-game “plans” will be in place for when you get to the end of the MMO’s story.

The Old Republic is due out after March 2011.

    Ugh, sounds like Micro-transactions, the herpes of online gaming. Fork that, I was really looking forward to this game to.

    sounds like you will be able to use actual US dollars to buy in game items, or ‘buy’ you way into a edge. Basically copying the slew of browser based MMO’s, while following the current trend of DLC
