EA merges servers for Star Wars: The Old Republic

SWTOR begins the march towards free-to-play

EA has revealed that they have merged some of the servers they have running for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The merging of servers has allowed they to close down the quietest servers meaning that there will be more players around to share the experience with.

A move like this helps lay the groundwork for the switch from a subscription model to free-to-play that is due later in the autumn.

EA BioWare stated on the official SWTOR website, "By centralising our player populations on these higher population destination servers, we feel that we can offer our players the best possible Star Wars: The Old Republic experience."

We need to talk... about 'gamers'
Because that term has a much wider definition than it used to.
