Star Wars: The Old Republic

Anyone play it? I recently gave it a whirl and I kind of like it, though I don't know how long it will hold my interest(all mmorpgs get old to me eventually)

It's a "freemium" game now where you can play for free, but need a subscription to get access to everything.

So far the things I've seen free players locked out of:
-some character races
-some classes
-some mission rewards
-limited access to space battles(it's only 2 or 3 a week)
-no access to the social panel for grouping. You can still group through the chat(which is how most people seem to do it anyways)

I haven't seen any missions locked to only subscribers yet, so I don't know if there are any.

It seems pretty good so far, I am a level 18 Republic Commando Trooper. Could have went Jedi but most people do so I switched it up. The other main class is smuggler.

I think I might check out the specs required tomorrow, if there are some other people who play/are interested.

Does it seem pretty cpu intensive so far?

May not be the best person to ask, my PC is fairly new so I don't have problems with it(the graphics are set on low by default because the video card is interal. It can probably run on higher settings but it looks fine and I don't care)

---------- Post added at 09:22 AM ---------- Previous post was at 06:51 AM ----------

Here are the system reqs

Processor:
  • AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better
  • Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz or betterOperating System:
  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 or later
RAM:
  • Windows XP: 1.5GB RAM
  • Windows Vista and Windows 7: 2GB RAM
Note: PCs using a built-in graphical chipset are recommended to have 2GB of RAM.
Star Wars: The Old Republic requires a video card that has a minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM as well as support for Shader 3.0 or better. Examples include:
  • ATI X1800 or better
  • nVidia 7800 or better
