Last Friday, BioWare updated their Free to Play announcement page with rewards for players who purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition. When SWTOR goes free to play, these players, if their subscriptions are active at the time, will obtain an additional 250 Cartel Coins. This bonus is in addition to any other monthly subscription or current subscription Coin bonuses. A dev tracker response on Friday also noted that players who purchased more than one edition of SWTOR on an individual account due to discounts, etc., will be receiving all bonuses.
BioWare also announced the free-to-play Fan Favorite Reward pet that subscribers from August 1st 2012 to the game’s free-to-play launch will be getting– the Party Jawa! Here is the announcement:
“BioWare and LucasArts are excited to announce that “The Party Jawa” has won our Fan Favorite voting contest. Over the past month, our Facebook Fans have had the opportunity to choose a favorite item to receive as a reward when Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ launches its new Free-to-Play option this Fall. Although it was hard to pick a favorite, The Party Jawa won by an overwhelming majority! The Party Jawa celebrates a player’s status as a veteran of the galaxy with a unique and fun animation. The Party Jawa will be rewarded to current or previous subscribers as of August 1 and who are active subscribers when the Free-to-Play option launches.”
