The official announcement is here! Star Wars: The Old Republic will drop on December 20th in the US and December 22nd in EU. BioWare has also detailed pricing information as well.
Well...at least they kept their word for it releasing this holiday season, albeit the very last weeks of the holiday season.
About time! Hopefully it is not crap.
True. NOW comes the real test: can they do what most MMO's DON'T do and actually have a decent launch? It's all about the first couple of weeks to see if they can sustain support for all the millions who will want to play.
Judging by the gameplay ive seen, the release date will go for 1997.
Its about damn time.
Finally!!! Hmm but from gameplay vids it wont be anythin amazin. But i will still try it out i wanna play a sith warrior.
Announcement comes like a day after Blizz announce Diablo isn't coming out until 2012.. what a coincidence. Awful release time though.. three days before Christmas day is the worst possible time to release a potentially addictive MMO.
Why, everyones on holiday
It's Christmas, for many of us we have family commitments over this period so play time would be limited.
Yeah obviously, but surely most people will have more time than usual work/school/college/uni etc not being part of the equation. Either way i can't wait :D
it's 5 days before Christmas not 3. =P Well I guess it is 3 days for EU players.
Price is typical of a MMO but it is good to see that its coming out this year. I thought it would be earlier but oh well as long as they have a good launch i don't really care.
Terrific, comes out exactly when my winter break starts. Although the price doesn't surprise me. Pretty standard.
Just pre-ordered through Origins. :)
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU i'll never buy the gaming pc in time before this lol oh well many months later i'll expect to be called a noob by the early players
December 22, 2011....A Day that will live in infamy!!! Can Bioware's/EA's $300 million dollar monster investment maintain 3 million subscribers and or take a 25% chunk from World of Warcraft...... AND survive the heavy influx of all the Action MMO's launching in early 2012? May the force be with you.......cause your gonna need it!!
