Star Wars: The Old Republic Finally is On Steam
Let us check the facts. First of all, Steam is the biggest game marketplace on the planet. EA decided to create Origin, but it was never enjoyed by the players and after a few years even EA games are making a comeback to the Steam. The recent successes of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a big deal and this showed EA that their games sell better on Steam. However, will this be enough to review Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Certainly, it will help, there are few issues but especially in the long run, the game will benefit from it. However, we need to keep in mind the review system on Steam plays a huge deal while players are choosing a game. Many players are hungry for a new MMORPG experience. This is why many will try but how many of them will stick is an issue. Currently, the game does push the subscription for players with blocking access to most of the content available.
