Star Wars: The Old Republic registers 2m new accounts since F2P switch

Star Wars: The Old Republic has seen an increase of 2m new accounts since switching to the free-to-play model last November.

In a State of the Game blog post, executive producer Jeff Hickman announced the figure – adding that the game's “high capacity servers are teeming with people,” thanks to “thousands of new players jumping in every single day.”

Hickman also stated that the MMO's Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion will launch this spring, and a new customization feature giving players more options to alter appearance using Cartel Coins will arrive sometime in the summer.

SWTOR launched in December 2011 with a subscription-based model, and went F2P on November 15th of last year.
