Star Wars: The Old Republic is the much anticipated new massively multi-player online role playing (MMORPG) game by developer BioWare. The game is being published by LucasArts and is expected to be released for the PC during the first half of 2010.
The Old Republic is a sequel to the hit single player adventure game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which was released to critical acclaim five years ago. Five years is a long time to go between games and greatly improved upon graphics and game play is to be expected. Set in the well-known Star Wars universe from the movies this game takes place about one thousand years before our friend Darth Vader set out to wreak havoc upon civilization. It advances the storyline three hundred years from where it ended in Knights of the Old Republic.
