The release date has been scheduled for December 20 in North America and December 22 all over Europe. This was announced by Bioware Co-Founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk at Eurogamer Expo 2011 in London, England. The news soon appeared on the official website of the game too.
Muzyka said, "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."
On the game's official forum, the Co-Founders added, "In 2008, along with our partners at LucasArts, we took to the stage to announce the development of the long-rumored BioWare massively multiplayer game set in the Star Wars universe. Over the past few years, we've pulled back the curtain and shown you why Star Wars: The Old Republic is the groundbreaking story-driven MMO you've always wanted, and how this game will change the MMO genre forever. We've given you a peek behind the scenes each week, showing you what it takes to create the largest MMO in development. Our team has traveled the world to give fans a chance to experience the game first-hand, and you've created an active pre-launch community larger than we've ever seen. Our game testing program has been a huge success, and thanks to you we have been able to achieve the BioWare level of quality our fans have come to expect in all of our games."
Star Wars: The Old Republic is priced at US $14.99 per month, followed by $13.99 per month for a quarter and $12.99 per month for a six-month subscription. The initial purchase will include a free 30-day subscription.
