SWTOR is going free-or-play next week, Bioware has announced.

The release will be simultaneous across all territories and countries where The Old Republic is available.

The new Free-to-Play option allows gamers to experience all of the class storylines through to Level 50, the current level cap, at no charge and introduces the new Cartel Market.

Paying subscribers at launch on November 15 will be granted all of the Complimentary Cartel Coins currently listed on the Cartel Coin Ledger page, plus a one-time grant of 250 Complimentary Cartel Coins.

Additionally, the Rewards Program has been extended, and all former subscribers who reactivate their subscription by December 20 will be granted Complimentary Cartel Coins for their prior paid months up to November 15.

Earlier today, the F2P date was revealed in an interview through German website Gamona, but removed as the date was still under embargo and was accidentally published early.

A video for the F2P option is below.
