Star Wars: The Old Republic gets a launch date

Save lots of sick days for December

The eagerly anticipated Star Wars MMO, which promises an immersive, typically Bioware storytelling experience – the sort we’re used to from the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series, and the The Old Republic‘s canonical predecessor Knights Of The Old Republic – with the free-roaming universe and chaos of online gaming, is set to go live December 20 in North America and December 22 in Europe.

Each copy of Star Wars: The Old Republic will come with 30 days of subscription time, after which you can subscribe for the following rates and kiss your social life goodbye as you start obsessing over the imagined status of your imagined smuggler.

  • 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)
