World of Warcraft May Be Adding Free-To-Play for 'Veterans'

Blizzard is looking for possible ways to entice seasoned World of Warcraft players back into the fold. These so-called Veteran players would be eligible to be a part of a new type of account called the Veteran Edition, sharing many of the traits and restrictions of the ‘Starter Edition’, both of which are free-to-play up to a certain preset level.

The patch notes for 6.1, the latest iteration of the game, include a new account type called "Veteran Edition" that has similar restrictions to "Starter Edition" accounts -- that is, the free trial account that lets you play the game for free, up to a point.
