More than a million players feel the Force on Star Wars: The Old Republic
Posted on December 24, 2011 by OG

Only a few days after its launch on Dec. 20th, Star Wars: The Old Republic already has more than a million registered players making it the fastest growing subscription MMO.  While not completely surprising considering the huge demand for the game, considering how jam-packed this holiday season was already, a million+ people on a subscription game in such a short time is unprecedented.  Here's a couple of extra  SWTOR facts from EA:

 

  • Logged 28 million in-game hours – roughly equivalent to watching all six Star Wars movies, two million times
  • Averaged well over five hours a day playing the game
  • Created more than 3.8 million characters; 510,000 Jedi Knights and 550,000 Sith Warriors
  • Killed more than two billion non-player characters in the eight days since Early Game Access began
