SWTOR’s site was updated with a bit more detail on what exactly the free-to-play side would receive. The main limitations are 3 Flashpoints weekly and 3 Warzones weekly. You can buy weekly passes to give you a weeks worth of access to the full version of the game and you’ll have to pick one up if you’re wanting to do Operations at all. Another big drawback is that you’ll have to have a license from the Cartel to actually equip most purple items. Overall it’s not a bad deal considering with low subscription numbers the main draw to the game will be it’s engrossing story line – all of which is completely available for free-to-play players.
One thing to note is that there’s still no date other than “coming this fall.” It’s middle of October – I’m kind of ready to reinstall this game, hurry up Bioware!
