Star Wars: The Old Republic has caught up with the rest of the MMO pack, and is integrating free-to-play features into the fold. However, these will restrict what players can experience while playing. Said restrictions have now been revealed into the wild. Get the list below

Massively reports that the Star Wars: The Old Republic’s free element will come with the following free restrictions and features:

Three Flashpoints per week
Three Warzones per week
Three Space Missions per week
The option to buy a weekly premium pass
Inventory expansion and cargo hold restrictions
Field revivals upon death are restricted
Character creation restrictions
Limited quick travel
Restrictions on login wait time

What do you make of these cut-backs for free players? Is restricting something like quick travel – which is an instrumental part of MMO play – a step too far? Let us know below.
