For the Republic!

Dust off your lightsabers and polish your thermal detonators.  The most anticipated MMO RPG of all time – Star Wars:  The Old Republic is nearly here. 

Although most producers and developers don’t like release dates to go as scheduled, this game is NOT likely to experience any last-minute delays (knock on wood).  December 20 will see the U.S. release, and Star Wars fans everywhere are writhing with anticipation.

Developed by BioWare and published by EA and LucasArtsOver, www.swtor.com has already achieved 2.4 million registered players.  This magnitude is clearly indicative of a game that may be too big for its britches. 

With over 720,000 beta testers, 78,000 newly created guilds and 9 million hours of gameplay, players are obviously ready to unleash the Force. 

Hopefully, developers are aware of the game’s notoriety and are prepared to deal with clogged servers, impatient consumers and heavy criticism.  Either way, hurry and pre-order before it’s too late!
