So Star Wars: the Old Republic went Free-to-Play late last year. You can still subscribe, which gets you some extra stuff, but it's no longer required.

In my e-mail this morning, I got a notice that a new expansion is coming out soonish. Which among other things, raises the level cap from 50 to 55. ($19.99, half price if you're a subscriber.)

Am I shocked? No, not really. I'd imagine that the raised level cap will only apply to those who buy the expansion, at least for the first six to nine months, and then it's likely to be rolled into the base game. But it is basically a "hey, game's free now... *dramatic pause* but you know you want this... *dangles new toy*"
