Although the players only need to buy Star Wars The Old Republic CD-Key
in SCDKey.com site can play games, but recently BioWare developers said that if the market needs, Star Wars The Old Republic may become a completely free game. The number of players Star Wars The Old Republic has repeatedly reduced, publisher EA has released a free demo, but BioWare chief designer Emmanuel Lusinchi believes still need to consider more long-term business model.
"Online games market is very flexible, we should also be addressed. Unless humanity can be satisfied with the status quo, or else everyone has been asked to update, requires new models and new story." Emmanuel Lusinchi told when interviewed said SCDKey.com website "So we are considering free game mode, but I can not disclose specific details. We need flexible, adapt to market demand."
But there is no EA spokesperson came forward to comment. Star Wars The Old Republic in December 2011 sale, within three days, the number of players soon reach one million, a few months later stabilized at 1.7 million. And a few months later, to reduce the number of players to 130 million. EA said, mainly because of the player's free trial expires, which leads to reduction in the number of players.
The game itself is very good, the key is not the MMO elements and those elements BIOWARE good well balanced, the final result is: Although it is BIOWARE game, but it would still be another version of WOW. Another point is that even if it is a map of the biggest RPG BIOWARE done, but the optimization engine is still not ready, does not allow players to experience a real sense of freedom, racial model is only a model, and then for the next skin. Water is a decoration, the player can not swim, the lack of broad PVP place, of course SCDKey.com think it is limited by the engine. 16 people have been tried RAID, the results of my computer but can not run. More than 100 people can not imagine what would be the case.
But the game play is still a lot of places, if that becomes free, then SCDKey.com
hope they put this free business model to balance.
