Star Wars: The Old Republic Gets Global Release Date

Posted on October 17, 2011 AT 05:54am

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.

Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
