THE BUZZ: Bioware has announced that Star Wars: The Old Republic’s European release date has been moved forward to allow for a global release of the game.

This means that the game will arrive in both the US and Europe on December 20th so neither territory gets an advantage over the other. The original European date was December 22nd but fans were unhappy at the US getting to start earlier.

EGM’s TAKE: In the world of MMOs a few days head start could mean a difference of 20 levels, so it’s good that BioWare switched to a global release.

Are you happy that the game has been brought forward? Leave us a comment below.
