"Star Wars: The Old Republic": December 20, 2011

BigGameHunter reports that Canadian-based BioWare, a label of Electronic Arts (EA) will launch the video game "Star Wars: The Old Republic" in North America, December 20, 2011.

"In 1977, Lucasfilm created magic with the release of 'Star Wars'," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder, BioWare and General Manager, BioWare Label. "Our goal is to capture some of that magic when we go live with 'Star Wars: The Old Republic''."

Set thousands of years before the rise of 'Darth Vader', "Star Wars: The Old Republic" is a massively multiplayer online game challenging players with combat across iconic worlds in the 'Star Wars' galaxy including 'Tatooine', 'Alderaan' and 'Hoth':

"...the 'Star Wars' galaxy is in the midst of a cold war. Players will be asked to join forces with either the 'Galactic Republic' or 'Sith Empire' and choose one of eight iconic Star Wars characters inluding 'Jedi Knight', 'Jedi Consular', 'Smuggler', 'Trooper', 'Bounty Hunter', 'Imperial Agent', 'Sith Inquisitor' and 'Sith Warrior'.

"...every player’s story will unfold based on meaningful choices made throughout the game, enabling them to become the hero of their own personal 'Star Wars' saga. Along their journey, players will encounter companion characters with whom they can build and break meaningful relationships as they fight by their side. Players will explore a vibrant galaxy, engage in heroic battles, and experience visceral 'Star Wars' combat..."
