Star Wars: The Old Republic Free Trial

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Website announces the launch of the Star Wars: The Old Republic Free Trial, which will allow everyone the chance to sample BioWare's MMORPG (thanks durandal). Word is you can progress up to level 15 without taking your wallet our of your pocket. Here's word:

Today we are excited to announce the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Free Trial*. Now you will be able to live out your very own Star Wars™ saga with thousands of other players up to level 15 with no charge or time limit! The Star Wars: The Old Republic Free Trial allows individuals, without a previously active Star Wars: The Old Republic game account, to see a portion of what the game has to offer with no payment method required.

Free Trial participants will experience the opening adventures of each of the eight character classes in the game. Players will explore their classes' Origin World, and may even have the opportunity to visit their faction’s Capital World! Additionally, Free Trial players will have the chance to face off against other players in Player-vs.-Player Warzones, or join up with friends and play through a Flashpoint.

Players who have previously participated in one of the Weekend Pass Free Trials or the Friends of Star Wars: The Old Republic Trial are also eligible to join this new free trial!

What what ?

They have bought Bioware too officially for abt 800 million... can you really believe they were sooo stupid to pay abt 1.3 billion for that shit ? This is plain and simple money laundering and paying the "right" ppl to keep control over the market. This is corporate world

EA bought Bioware for 640 million, not 800, but okay. That didn't get them just ToR, however. It also got them the Dragon Age franchise, the Mass Effect franchise, etc, both of which have done pretty damn well and have made EA quite a nice penny. There's no need to add the purchase price of Bioware to the development cost of ToR.

And again, I'd take the 500 million with a massive grain of salt. It's just more of the "ToR COST LIKE 9000 BILLION" bullshit rhetoric that pops up on the Internet within 0.005 seconds of something being said by someone somewhere in a rant. (as you'll recall, it was the grumpy EA dude who first claimed that ToR cost 300 million, and since then the guesses have just gotten higher and higher.)

Even so, I don't think EA is making a lot of money on ToR, even with a million subscribers, and it's sad to think that six years of development time and that much money (However much it is: likely somewhere between 100 and 300 million) and all they could come up with is a pisspoor skinjob for WoW.
