Bioware has announced the release date and subscription pricing for their upcoming MMORPG.
Star Wars: The Old Republic will be the final MMORPG release of 2011 as Bioware has announced that the game will launch on December 20, 2011 in North America and on December 22, 2011 in the European Territories.
Bioware’s Dr. Muzyka added:
“This is an incredible moment for everyone at BioWare and our partners at LucasArts who have dedicated their lives to build this extraordinary game. We appreciate the patience from the millions of fans who have been waiting for the game’s release.”
As well as a definitive release date, Bioware also announced the subscription model pricing.
1 Month Subscription: $14.99 (£8.99/€12.99)
3 Month Subscription: $13.99 per month (one-time charge of $41.97/£25.17/€35.97)
6 Month Subscription: $12.99 per month (one-time charge of $77.94/£46.14/€65.94)
The pricing seems very reasonable considering many MMOs are moving to a free to play model due to the reluctance to pay a monthly subscription but could this be one of the last subscription based MMOs we see?
