SWTOR - Going F2P for good or more PR disasters...?By: Pelagato posted at Jun 18, 2012 9:00 am
Hey peeps, recently I heard that SWTOR is going to take the F2P route, the first thing I heard was that the game is going to offer you the first 15 levels for free but a few days ago the idea that the whole game is going to turn into a F2P game is starting to pick up some speed.
I know that people usually believe what developers and executives tell us, the problem is that sometimes their credibility or even their sanity is a bit dubious. Do you guys remember when EA!!! Told the world that SWTOR was not in their priority list??? What kind of PR disaster is that!!!!!????
Now they are telling us that the game is going to turn into a F2P title soon, all of this because the market is difficult, there is way too many mmos around the place, etc...
I dont want to sound skeptical or anything but I am under the impression that the whole market excuse is simply a way to cover up the real reason behind SWTOR taking the F2P route (That is if is true and is no more executive crap). People is not playing the game anymore, they are not paying a montly fee to play SWTOR, a game that at the best feels like a single player game with multiplayer functionality...
Dont get me wrong people, I like SWTOR, the game is cool, the graphics are stylish and cute, the animations are sweet, the characters look sexy and in the end is about Star Wars!!! But that is not enough to make sure that half of the world population is going to pay a monthly fee for your game...
Now it looks like EA or Bioware, finally realized that they are in big trouble, they decided to turn the game into what really is... A F2P title... That is of course if the executive was telling us the true and they dont change of mind lol... I really want to see SWTOR taking another approach and doing whatever it takes to take the game afloat once again... After all, I am a Star Wars Fan... Its too darn bad that things are not exactly rolling well...
The question is...
Is the game going to be F2P in a nearby future or all this F2P news are just a bunch of EA corporate drama?????
