Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
The longly awaited, highly anticipated MMO by BioWare, Star Wars: The Old Republic, was released today. It’s been dubbed as the most expensive game ever made, with the budget said to be around $130 million.
More than a million early access customers have already joined the MMO, and despite complaints of hefty server queues developer BioWare says it’s “extremely happy” with where it stands at launch.
Dr. Ray Muzyka, BioWare co-founder says:
“Today represents an amazing milestone for BioWare, EA and Star Wars fans everywhere and we are confident it has been worth the wait.
The support and resources going into Star Wars: The Old Republic are not ending today. The innovations we’re bringing to the category are just the start of a journey and ongoing investment in our players that will grow, evolve and transform based on player feedback over the weeks, months and years ahead.”
Fellow co-founder Dr. Greg Zeschuk adds:
“The addition of story and personal choice to the MMO genre is going to fundamentally change the way people perceive MMOs moving forward, especially when it is experienced at its fullest potential with high-quality writing and voice acting. We are extremely happy with where The Old Republic stands at launch and we can’t wait to grow the game with our community to make it even better in the future.”
Star Wars fan or not, it’s definitely one of the best, if not the best MMO out there.
