Forget about all the bullshit alterations made for the Star Wars BluRay edition. Seriously, forget about it. Your tears have been nothing but lubrication for George Lucas masturbatory needs. You can kick and scream all you want, but the $84 million dollars made worldwide in its first week of release nullifies your cries. Before you go grumbling off, whilst kicking the dirt, there is a another that can bring balance to the force. It was finally announced at the Eurogamer Expo from Bioware that the long awaited video game Star Wars: The Old Republic will be released on December 20th 2011!!!
BioWare, Co-Founder, and General Manager of the BioWare Label, Dr. Ray Muzyka had this to say,
In 1977, Lucasfilm created magic with the release of Star Wars. Our goal is to capture some of that magic when we go live with Star Wars: The Old Republic on December 20. This is an incredible moment for everyone at BioWare and our partners at LucasArts who have dedicated so much of their lives to building this extraordinary game.
Dr. Greg Zeschuk, Co-Founder, BioWare and General Manager of the MMO Business Unit of BioWare added,
We appreciate the patience of the millions of fans who have been waiting for the game’s release. When we launch this groundbreaking MMO with world class storytelling this holiday season, we hope you will agree that it was worth the wait.
The Old Republic takes place thousands of years before the events of the Star Wars films. The Sith Empire and Galactic Republic are locked in a deadly conflict. Players will have eight classes to choose from, each of which has their own unique storyline to experience. On your journey, you’ll travel to Tatooine, Alderaan, and other notable worlds from Star Wars lore.
Here are the subscription details… The first 30 days will be free with $14.99 being the price-per-month fee. Alternate plans like paying for a three months will be $41.97 and $77.94 for six months at a time.
I don’t play MMO’s that often, but when I do…I prefer my choices to be engaging, interesting and have the right blend of gameplay. Star WarsThe Old Republic looks to offer all of that and more.
