Star Wars: The Old Republic Releases Across the Galaxy in December

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)
  • 3 Month Subscription: $13.99 per month (one-time charge of $41.97/£25.17/€35.97)
  • 6 Month Subscription: $12.99 per month (one-time charge of $77.94/£46.14/€65.94)

Star Wars: The Old Republic is the new groundbreaking MMORPG from BioWare that combines their expertise in role-playing games with the expansive Star Wars universe. Create your own character from a wealth of customizable options, gather companions to form a crew, group up with like-minded players to enter intense missions, and prepare to do battle for the fate of the galaxy.

      I'm not saying this was a worthless idea. just that you were to quick to throw away the preivious story and characters to keep up with the idea of "out with the old, in with the new"
