Is SWTOR no longer F2P?

I bought the game when it released and played for a bit, but things got stale so I took a long break. When it went F2P I would pop in once in a while and play around a bit. I recently went to reinstall the game and check out the new changes and there was no option to download without subscribing. Is it no longer free to play?

Thanks

    I played it last summer for awhile and it was still F2P.  The site still says play for free also.

    It's still F2p.  In fact they recently made some of the previous B2p expansons f2p.  Looks like you just hit the wrong button.

    OK, so here:   https://www.swtor.com/

    Now look up in the upper right hand corner where it says 'PLAY FREE'.  Click it and you go here: 

    https://account.swtor.com/play-for-free

    I'm guessing from the swtor.com page you just clicked on the big 'Play Now' button in the middle and you're right it just talks about getting a sub to play.

    You can download the game in game account section, under My account.
    (like Nebless pointed out)


    It is probably a bit unusual but not unheard of.

    My husband wants us to go back and play this but I am currently playing Archeage Unchained and Classic WoW but Archeage is taking up oodles of my time so much so that Classic hasn't seen me for awhile.

    Got it, thanks. I had to go through my account menus.

    Its still F2P.  You just can't go all the way to max level and are restricted to the main story.  They recently added the Revan content for free, but I am not sure if that was permanent or a one time thing.
