Talk about a last minute Christmas gift, EA and Bioware have announced that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be coming out December 20th of THIS YEAR. Star Wars fans will be able to waste their holidays by grinding level with their Galactic Republic or Sith Empire character rather than spending all their time bitching about the changes in the Star Wars Trilogy on Blu-ray.
Subscription fees for the game will follow the standard $14.99 per month with copies including the first 30 days for free. Players expecting to play for the long run can choose to go with a 3 month subscription or 6 month subscription for a discounted charge of $41.97 or $77.94 respectively.
