Star Wars: The Old Republic F2P Next Month

BioWare's Dr. Ray Muzyka took to the stage at E3 to announce plans for Star Wars: the Old Republic, their Star Wars MMORPG. He unveils plans to add more PvP warzones, more challenging group- and higher-level content (including a new version of hardcore mode), new companion characters, player-requested features, and more to the game over the coming year. He caps things off by announcing plans for limited free-to-play support, saying beginning in July, everyone will be able to play the game up to level 15 for free.

Nah, just tired of the standard fomrulas. I've been enjoying the hell out of GW2 so far and am amped for this weekend's coming test.

Ayup. Same shit with different paint doesn't cut it, anymore. People are sick of WoW clones.

GW2 is fairly refreshing.

And that is what the genre needs... vastly different gameplay between MMO's like we had in the early days (UO, vs EQ, vs AC... totally different gameplay although they were all medieval settings)

Technically... everything is an EQ clone (even WoW), when you look at if from the "standard formula" perspective... just evolved to being way more solo friendly, and being peppered with "mundane tasks" being passed off as quests.
