Star Wars: The Old Republic To Be Released 12/20/2011 Worldwide
Just a lazy Saturday morning right? Thought you were going to get up early and mow the lawn? THINK AGAIN!
Star Wars: The Old Republic will officially release on December 20, 2011 world-wide.
Read that again. TOR is coming out this year!
Dr. Ray had this to say:
“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.”
They also announced the subscription plans, and as suspected it doesn’t stray too far from what we’re all used to:
- 1 Month Subscription: $14.99 (£8.99/€12.99)
- 3 Month Subscription: $13.99 per month (one-time charge of $41.97/£25.17/€35.97)
- 6 Month Subscription: $12.99 per month (one-time charge of $77.94/£46.14/€65.94)
No mention was made of micro-transactions or other forms of payment, for now at least.
Absent from the announcement was the start date for Early Game Access, which everyone who pre-orders will receive. Although BioWare’s David Bass was able to provide us with this important insight on the topic on Twitter:
@doctordake: Before Dec. 20 :)
Stay tuned for more on this breaking news, and incredible moment for not only the TOR community but the gaming and Star Wars community as a whole! You can read the official press release here.
[UPDATE] A new version of the Fate Of The Galaxy trailer has been released. It doesn’t appear to be any different, aside from the release date tag at the end.
[UPDATE 2] There’s now a short video of the moment that the Dr.’s made the release date announcement yesterday… thanks to Corellian Run Radio for the find!
