Star Wars SWTOR

In November 2012 I had the pleasure of testing the new massively-multiplayer online game from Bioware and LucasArts called Star Wars The Old Republic. Set thousands of years before the original Star Wars trilogy you get the chance to be the hero of your own Star Wars™ saga when war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy.

Choose to be a Jedi, a Sith, or from a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, and make decisions which define your personal story and determine your path down the light or dark side of the Force. Along the way you will befriend courageous companions who will fight at your side or possibly betray you based on your actions. Together, you will battle enemies in dynamic Star Wars combat and team up with other players to overcome incredible challenges.

Having been a fan of past Bioware games such as Knights of the Old Republic and the Mass Effect Trilogy this game did not disappoint in the brief time I had to play it. I tried various character classes but favoured the Jedi Knight. Below are screenshots from my testing experience.

Star Wars The Old Republic is released on 20th December. Early access is available for those who have pre-ordered.
