On December 20th, companies including Bioware, LucasArts and EA will be launching gamers into the largest Star Wars universe ever created. Explore planets and distant star systems as a Jedi or Sith in one of the most anticipated MMO’s of the year, Star Wars: The Old Republic.
The game is set 300 years after the events in Knights of the Old Republic (KotOR) where the war between the Empire and Republic continues, as dark forces seek to control the stars. Players can traverse the galaxy alone or with friends. The unique progression system allows for gamers to unlock skills and abilities quickly and while encounters with basic enemies may not pose much threat, players will need to use teamwork and smart tactics to bring down mightier adversaries.
