A KOTOR under EA would have been the shits anyway.

It's a shame they won't reinvest that money into making some new story content. Despite all it's flaws, SWTOR had some fantastic stories.

coolbeans3659d ago

Indeed. I want to jump back into the Bounty Hunter storyline the more I think about it.

pompombrum3659d ago

Yeah lol, Bounty Hunter is probably my favourite story out of all of them, they really captured the feel perfectly.

Is playing for free worth it or is it too limiting ?

coolbeans3659d ago

@3-4-5

I'd say it can feel too limiting at times. It's great that all campaign content is unlocked but PvP, dungeons, raids are all locked behind purchasable weekly passes. It's a micro-transaction haven.

I love that it was fully voiced. Imagine how much they spent on actors alone. No wonder it was so bloody expensive.

It definitely has it charms.

I want to play it for each class story, but that would defeat the purpose of it being an mmo

I have already beat the Sorcerer Story which was good.

Dan_scruggs3659d ago

Well. ONLY $165 million. What a failure. I think. I don't know. Actually that sounds like a lot of money. And only in one year. Seems like that's pretty good.

Dehnus3659d ago

Let's put it into subscribers. Say 12 bucks a month on average (give or take subscription plans).

(165000000 / 12) / 12 = 1,145,834 subscribers. Not bad I think for a "dead" MMO. It's not WOW levels but good enough.

joab7773659d ago

I wonder where FF14 will fall next time now that its on PS4. I know it went over 2 million subscribers...so it must be up there somewhere...and its amazing...and has a lot of content for being young.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Still Receiving Updates 11 Years Into Release

A new update for Star Wars: The Old Republic is coming out on PC and the patch notes provide us with an in-depth look at all the new changes.

I loved this game and have played since launch but don't let this article fool you, this game is a step above life support. While they are still technically updating the game, the updates are few and far between and there is a significant lack of quality control, so many little bugs that have been present for years.

TheColbertinator482d ago

The updates felt flimsy to me also. Stopped playing in 2021.

Andrew336483d ago

This game got a huge update last year didn't it with more content?

PapaBop483d ago

They promoted it as an expansion yet offered like 3-4 hours of content. The game is amazing and easily one of the best Star Wars games ever made but content drops are so few and far between.
