The much anticipated Star Wars MMO based around the Knights of the Old Republic timeline is still quite far from any type of release to the public. Being developed by BioWare’s new Austin studio, it’s so far from release that included in what we don’t know about it yet is its pricing.
“The way we look at these things is, ‘What’s the standard at the time?’ Obviously we’re not quite done yet. We’ve got a lot of work left to do. But we’ll be very conscious of how the market looks,” BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk told VG247.
The standard could be anything, in the West it could mean subscriptions, alluding to the popular World of Warcraft model but in parts of Asia the micro-transaction model for MMOs has really prospered. Regardless, it seems the pricing on The Old Republic won’t be too foreign.
