SWTOR F2P restrictions outlined in video form

Friday, 19th October 2012 01:08 GMT By Brenna Hillier

For those who find reading words a bit of a headache, BioWare has releaded a handy video guide to the upcoming free-to-play option for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

If you really want to ensure you understand the distinction between the premium subscription and free-to-play content, why not open the text version at the same time and pay attention with both halves of your brain? This is service indeed.

Star wars: The Old Republic welcomes free-to-play friends sometime before northern winter.

Thanks, Massively.

    With so many restrictions, I am surprised that this video isnt on Sky box office @ £1.99 or 50 cartel coins to view….

    The final jarring shutters of a dying entity.

    On a happy note at least the stories are still free.

    I only played the game for the story and then unsubbed once I was done, but I can see how the restrictions could be seen as strict for a player wanting more then the games story.

    So can i play the main story of the classes with these restrictions?

    Three Flashpoints per week
    Three Space Missions per week

    Or does the main story send me to Flashpoints/Space Missions all the time and you would always have to wait a week to continue the game for another 3-4 hours?

    There are no flashpoints required for the story, no space missions either. The solo experience is just as good as the subscription model (except you have less race choices at character selection).

    The solo experience is one of the best in an mmo though, so if you haven’t tried it yet, you should.

    To complete your class story, you don’t have to enter a warzone/Flashpoint or space mission.

    So yes you can complete your class story from 1-50 with these restrictions.
