Over 2 Million Accounts Created Since Star Wars: The Old Republic F2P Switch

Posted on March 22, 2013 AT 04:03am

BioWare has announced that over 2 million new accounts have been created in Star Wars: The Old Republic since the game switched to a free-to-play model, with thousands of new accounts being made every single day.

Executive producer Jeff Hickman says that “player feedback, in general, has been very positive about the new things in the game.”

“Last spring, there was some uncertainty surrounding Star Wars: The Old Republic as we were starting to lose subscribers and players were growing frustrated,” said Hickman. “In fairness, many of the complaints and worries were justified. In an effort to try to address everything, we just weren’t sufficiently focused on improving the core experience.”

Hickman also mentioned that players will be granted the ability to customize already created characters early this summer in exchange for Cartel Coins.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
