IGN has posted some new free-to-play details for Star Trek Online. The solid date given in the article indicates that the free-to-play switch will happen on January 17th, 2012. Learn more about the upcoming free-to-play switch in IGN’s article and interview with Star Trek Online Executive Producer Stephen D'Angelo, who explains why the game didn't launch as a free-to-play title.
"We've always wanted the game to be free-to-play," he says, "in fact we tried to make it free-to-play at the original launch, but our publisher [Atari] didn't want us doing that so we didn't do that."
