You Can Be A Jedi By Christmas

Or a bounty hunter, a smuggler, or whatever Star Wars-related job you want to take, because Bioware's finally dated Star Wars: The Old Republic for December 20th in North America, and December 22 in Europe and related territories. BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk announced the news as part of their keynote for the Eurogamer Expo in London. Muzyka effuses:

This is an incredible moment for everyone at BioWare and our partners at LucasArts who have dedicated their lives to build this extraordinary game. We appreciate the patience from the millions of fans who have been waiting for the game's release.

Preorderers will still get early access to the game, although it's not stated exactly how early that access will be. They've previously hinted that copies of the game, even digital ones, will be strictly limited at first to prevent the servers from completely collapsing under the weight of demand. Also revealed was the pricing structure: the first 30 days of the game will be free, but after that it's $14.99 a month. If you're a bit more confident, you can buy three months ($41.97) or six months ($77.94) at a time, saving you $3 and $12 respectively.

Of course, most of you who have an eye on the game are probably waiting for the gays to get patched in, something Bioware has promised will be coming after the game's release.

My interest in this game has increased a lot since I found out that Origin isn't required to play it.

Releasing three days before Christmas during the Postal Apocalypse? People waiting for their pre-orders to be delivered will have some nervous times.

I'm beginning to take interest in getting this.

The fact that I'm currently playing through Star Wars: KotOR probably has something to do with it.

I'll definitely be waiting for the same sex romance content to be added before I buy it.

That's so dumb.

Its 4 days before x'mas, which means we either get no support during the launch weekend or they are forcing everyone at bioware to work overtime DURING x'mas.

Couldn't they release it 3 weeks before or after x'mas?
