Last week, Star Wars: The Old Republic went live for those who pre-ordered the game during the Early Game Access period. Today, the game goes live for the rest of the world which is sure to improve the already lengthy sever queues.
“Today represents an amazing milestone for BioWare, EA and Star Wars fans everywhere and we are confident it has been worth the wait,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder, BioWare and General Manager, EA’s BioWare Label. “The support and resources going into Star Wars: The Old Republic are not ending today. The innovations we’re bringing to the category are just the start of a journey and ongoing investment in our players that will grow, evolve and transform based on player feedback over the weeks, months and years ahead.”
Bioware is touting their MMO as a story-driven MMO featuring fully voiced storylines and a sweeping musical score. It doesn’t hurt that the game looks gorgeous as well. Hopefully the gameplay itself feels fresh enough to encourage people to continue playing beyond the first free month.
