Bum-bum-bumbum. That phonetically attempted tune can only mean one thing, padawans: Star Wars: The Old Republic is live. BioWare’s galaxy-spanning MMO has launched for the PC and is currently hosting innumerable adventures and adventurers. Set thousands of years before the films, players will side with the Galactic Republic or Sith Empire in one of sci-fi’s greatest wars. Eight character types are available (Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, Smuggler, Trooper, Bounty Hunter, Imperial Agent, Sith Inquisitor, and Sith Warrior), and each has two subclasses that are further differentiated by their own skill trees. Each character also has their own storyline, complete with a fully voiced cast.
New copies of Star Wars: The Old Republic come with a 30-day pass, with subscription options available at $14.99 per month, $41.97 for 3 months ($13.99 per month), or $77.94 for six months ($12.99 per month).
