The most anticipated MMO release of the year, Star Wars:The Old Republic will hit shops in the US on 20 December 2011 with a European launch confirmed for 22 December.
BioWare is clearly pitching its big release at the Christmas market, which is a bold move considering the domination of Call of Duty in previous years.
SWTOR comes with 30 days free and a choice of subscription packages, starting at $14.99 (£8.99) for one month.
Never mind WoW beater, we just want it to be a good Star Wars game. If anyone can do it, BioWare can.
