Game Subscription Cost

What do you think the cost will be to play this game monthly? I think they're going to make you pay monthly on top of the £130 a lot of people are spending like WoW does.

I just hope that they don't be extortionate like Blizzard, overpricing everything.

We know for certain that some sort of subscription fee is part of the business model for the game, in addition to micro-transactions from the in-game store, but we don't know the exact costs involved.

My guess, though, would be between £8-10.

I think the US $14.95-$15 price range is a general standard throughout the industry. They shouldn't deviate too far from that.

I concur with Deft here.

It won't be anything above the standard in the industry. I'm pretty sure of that.

I'm certainly not willing to pay more than £10 (the equivalent price on this side of the pond) a month, no matter how good the game is.

I just hope that the people in charge of the pricing have their heads screwed on correctly, and don't think that simply because it's Star Wars we'll pay whatever the cost.
