After the world was told about the premise of an epic BioWare MMORPG set in the famed Star Wars universe all the way back in 2008, there's been one question that has been on everyone's mind: when is it coming out? The BioWare team gave their answer this past weekend, and we are happy to say that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be released December 20th in North America and December 22nd in Europe.
Anyone who pre-orders the game will receive a special code that can be entered at the Star Wars: The Old Republic site for early game access. That includes games pre-ordered at Origin. All copies of the game include a 30-day subscription and once that time passes, you have the option of continuing with one of the following monthly subscription plans:
- 1 Month Subscription: $14.99 (£8.99/€12.99)
