Release Date – December 20th

Published by under Breaking News on Sep. 24. 2011.

In a completely unexpected turn of events, Bioware and Lucas Arts announced today at Eurogamer EXPO that Star Wars: The Old Republic will launch on December 20th in the USA and on December 22nd for European customers. The announcement was first made by BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk during their keynote address at the Expo. The official news can be found over on this page. I would like to say that after more than 2 years of following news about this game and writing about it for more than a year this is the most exciting piece of information we have had. In my name and I guess everyone’s here at SWTOR Life there is one thing I would like to say:

Here’s a snippet from the official announcement:

This is an incredible moment for everyone at BioWare and our partners at LucasArts who have dedicated their lives to build this extraordinary game. We appreciate the patience from the millions of fans who have been waiting for the game’s release.

Each copy of Star Wars: The Old Republic will come with 30 days of subscription time, after which you have the option to continue playing with one of the following monthly subscription fees:

1 Month Subscription: $14.99 (£8.99/€12.99)

    It’s a very strange date for release I’m sure the TOR staff would like to have this roll over into the new year so they could enjoy the holiday then game back in the think of things.

    Awesome to finally know! But I can’t help wonder why the announcement came so suddenly out of the blue- not at all the rumbling train approach they talked about hehe.
