Free SWTOR Character Transfers Starts Today

Posted by at 2:42 pm on June 12, 2012

BioWare has kicked off the Free character transfers for Star Wars: The Old Republic for players stuck on low population servers.

SWTOR once had 1.7 million active subscribers just after launch, but  Electronic Arts recently revealed in a quarterly earnings report that the game has lost 400,000 subscribers since February. BioWare says transfers are now necessary to “maintain population balance across the service and create a better overall gameplay experience.”

BioWare says only select servers will offer free transfers initially to prevent potential server load issues. A small number of the lowest population servers will get first dibs. More will be added gradually, and will be listed as they become available at

More information on the character transfer process is on the official SWTOR website.
