Electronic Arts on Tuesday announced that it will offer up substantial portions of its "Star Wars: The Old Republic" multi-player online game to players for free starting this fall.

Electronic Arts on Monday said it will open significant portions of its massively ambitious game “Star Wars: The Old Republic” to free players starting in July, in an attempt to find more subscribers willing to spend a monthly fee to play the online title. The game, which cost more than $150 million to create, was the most expensive video game that EA had ever produced and certainly among the costliest games of all time. In an interview last fall prior to the game's release in December, EA Vice President Greg Zeschuk said the game's huge cost could only be recouped through a premium subscription model.
