BioWare "committed to updates every 6 weeks" with 'Star Wars: The Old Republic'


BioWare Austin general manager Matt Bromberg has confirmed that the developer will be releasing a "major update" for the MMORPG every 6 weeks.

According to Bromberg, the game's next update - Terror from Beyond - will be a substantial update and will give gamers fresh new content. Speaking with AusGamers, Bromberg detailed a bit of what the studio's plans are going forward with Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Were committed to: about every six weeks, doing a major update for the game, Bromberg explained, which would be a new Warzone, a new Operation, a new Flashpoint, a new event and to doing that on a really frequent cadence, every six weeks. So were going to stick to that.

As well as the free-to-play launch, which is coming in the fall, Bromberg continued, we announced that subscribers who have lapsed are already qualified to get Cartel Coins, which will be the in-game currency in the game once free-to-play launches.

So you get credit, not just for becoming a subscriber now, going forward, but also for all the time that you were a subscriber, you get more credits and more coin. So were hoping that that will encourage people to come back to the game and try it now, Bromberg concluded.
Star Wars: The Old Republic will be going free-to-play this fall after not having the best showing since its launch last year.
