There Are Still Hope for the Star Wars The Old Republic
As we all know that the famous video game "Star Wars: The Old Republic" is on its rough way now. Some players even said that the game is now failed totally. The game is going swtor credits to be free-to-play; however, it doesn't mean that it failed. I know there must have some hope for it.
As you may know, two weeks ago, EA and BioWare announced unsurprisingly a shift to a free-to-play model for its SWTOR. Originally a highly anticipated title, The Old Republic reached a high point of 1.7 million subscribers shortly after its release.
However, the numbers tumbled downhill after that, losing well over 700,000 subscribers. Despite the loss, BioWare takes to the stage at this year's Gamescom with enthusiasm for the game's future.
"The market is clearly becoming a free-to-play market in the MMO space. It appears that's the direction the whole industry is going," states Matthew Bromberg, BioWare Austin's general manager.
"Our own research told us that a significant percentage of the folks who have left the game, left because of the commitment to the subscription model. It's not that surprising if you think about it because the dynamic in an MMO is essentially one in which you subscribe and then you're waiting for new content, and people don't feel good about waiting."
What's more, the company promises to bring along more frequent content updates. The updates will be free for those who remain subscribed. These updates will push for more social interaction with additional group content, operations, warzones, flashpoints, and social events.
Despite losing a staggering number of subscribers, BioWare seems to be confident swtor credits in the title's potential to live up to its expectations. Will the shift in subscription model and upcoming content updates be enough to bring you back to the game?
I don't know the answer for the question yet. I just know one thing that there must be reasons for the beginning hot sale for the game. I know there must be hopes for it, what do you think?
