Star Wars: The Old Republic, which went free-to-play last November, has seen a number of content updates and expansions release, resulting in an increase in players and revenue.

"We are constantly looking to improve the gameplay experience in Star Wars: The Old Republic, finding fresh new ways for players to try it out while offering new, higher-level content to our existing community," said Jeff Hickman, General Manager of BioWare Austin. "With the addition of the new BitRaider streaming download, the upcoming Game Update 2.4, which includes two new Operations and the launch of PvP Warzone Arenas, there's never been a better time to join us."
