Star Wars: The Old Republic is a premier MMORPG from BioWare and LucasArts set in the Star Wars universe. Set a thousand years before the tale told in the movies, players choose to join the Galactic Republic or the Sith Empire as a time of tenuous peace seems about to vanish. Take on the role of many distinguished Star Wars classes, such as Jedi Knight, Smuggler, Sith Warrior, and Bounty Hunter, and forge your own path with either the light or dark side of the Force. Search for adventure and excitement throughout a game galaxy more than 30,000 parsecs wide, or as close as the nearest wretched hive of scum and villainy. Is the Force with you?

Star Wars: The Old Republic expanded recently with Knights of the Eternal Throne. Bioware has put together a nice accolades tribute to KotET to show off some of why our own Mike Bitton said, "If you've been waiting around for Bioware to put together a KOTOR III, you may want to take a look at SWTOR. Bioware Austin has essentially been building it under our noses in SWTOR."
