Gamers across the world can finally experience Star Wars: The Old Republic in full after the eagerly-awaited MMORPG finally went live for PC this week.
The long-anticipated PC game from EA and BioWare has debuted in stores worldwide with a series of well-attended midnight launch events, with servers now active and welcoming new players from around the world.
Star Wars: The Old Republic is the first ever MMO game from BioWare, the acclaimed creator of Mass Effect and Dragon Age, and shakes up the traditional genre with in-depth storylines, compelling characters and fully voiced dialogue.
Playing as character classes such as Jedi knights, Sith warriors, bounty hunters or imperial agents, fans can explore the Star Wars universe thousands of years before the events of the movies, travelling to distant worlds and engaging in heroic battles.
The game has already won more than 100 awards and is set to play host to countless new stories over the coming months and years.
Dr Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of BioWare, said: "We are extremely happy with where The Old Republic stands at launch and we can't wait to grow the game with our community to make it even better in the future."
