It’s been a long (long time…) in coming, but Bioware have finally given us a release date for STAR WARS: The Old Republic… And it’s the 22nd of December 2011 for Europe (20th of December if your over in North America)! Merry Christmas everyone!

SWTOR is a game we’ve been desperate to play ever since it was announced back in 2008. Originally planned for early 2011, not unsurprisingly give Bioware’s usual ‘we’ll release it when it’s ready and not before’ attitude, it slipped, and we were beginning to wonder if we’d ever get to see SWTOR this side of the 2011 holiday season. Thankfully the lil Bioware Ewoks have been hard at work, and from all the footage and previews i’ve see, SWTOR is not only ready, it should be one of the most engrossing and detailed MMORPG game worlds ever created.

Like previous Bioware games, SWTOR has a heavy focus on story, way more so than any other MMORPG gone before. Bioware plan to firmly re-attached the RPG part of the acronym – something that has been sorely missing in many more recent MMO releases.

After your initial 30 days, the subscription costs are pretty much in line with the genre’s other major player ‘World of Warcraft’, with 1 month subs at £8.99, 3 months at £25.17, and 6 months at £46.14. No news on how early the ‘Early Game Access’ will be yet.

So there your are, you now know what to ask Santa to get you for Christmas… STAR WARS: The Old Republic – 22nd of December 2011.



Don't ask me what it's all about, but I thought you might be interested!

I truly don't play games!

The only game I play is Free Cell on the lappy of an evening.

I know nuffink about Star Wars - I saw it when it came out, but that's about it.

Shall I go and hang my head in shame now? :oops:

Already planning my Sith Warrior. We have a guild already set up with about 15 players on a small gamers forum.

Not keen on the subscription though, I hate that you have to buy a game and then have to pay to play it. Will probably do it for the first couple of months and if it holds my attention I'll carry on as its Star Wars and the first 2 Old Republic games were fantastic

I only got it since it was £4 in the shop (god bless pre-release selling) for 30 days.

Usually I just ignore most MMORPGs.

Are there any plans to release it on Xbox?

I myself use a PC and think the very mention of the word "Xbox" is blasphemy, but there probably is a significant amount of people who played the other KotOR games on the Xbox.

This game may actually get me playing MMORPGs again. I will be giving it a go. I'll be happy to team up with any other members of this site to go kick ass :twisted: It may just help to get to know someone else before the convention too :)
