Star Wars: The Old Republic is now free on Steam

If you’re just feeling a bit nostalgic, visit Steam where you’ll find this classic Star Wars title now.

Originally published in 2011, this MMO was a BioWare fan favorite and received five narrative expansions. 3,000 years before the events of the Star Wars films, players can take on the roles of cult roles such as Jedis, Siths and bounty hunters.

It’s a great MMO to try if you are a big fan of the Star Wars universe and want to learn and explore more from the world.

Last year EA announced that its PC games would eventually land on Steam. First, we got the critically acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Now we have an outdated but popular Star Wars title that we can play around with. So far, EA has brought 25 games to Steam, including franchises like Battlefield, Mass Effect and the Star Wars Battlefront series.

Optional subscriptions to unlock additional content

While The Old Republic can be played for free, you can sign up for a few different subscriptions that are completely optional. With the subscription, you can experience even more of the Star Wars world, including an increased cap of 75 and access to the extensions. You get the following benefits:

  • Instant access to all expansions, including Charge, Knight of the Eternal Throne, and Knight of the Fallen Realm
  • The upper limit has been increased from 60 to 75
  • Unlimited access to war zones, flash points, riots and operations
  • Monthly grant for cartel coins
  • Increased experience gain (XP)
  • Increased awareness
  • An increased reputation gain
  • Additional drawing spaces
  • Rest XP

You can sign up for a 30-, 90-, or 180-day subscription from the drop-down list on the Steam Store page.

Cartel coins

Another optional feature of Star Wars: The Old Republic is the cartel market. This is a premium marketplace where the game’s most requested goods and goods are traded.

You can buy things like armor sets, weapons, mounts, playable types, character boosts, and more with a game currency called Cartel Coins.

All of these items are cosmetic and don’t affect the game too much. So if you prefer not to concern yourself with the in-game currency, don’t worry. They are just nice extras for fans of the game who want to change something.

On the Steam Store page, you can buy between 250 ($ 2.99) and 5500 cartel coins ($ 39.99).
