Happy birthday, Star Wars: The Old Republic! It's hard to believe that Bioware's flagship MMO is turning half a decade old today. Not ones to let a good anniversary opportunity go by, Bioware's Ben Irving has posted a great post celebrating the game and its community. To kick off the day, a special character portrait collage representing some of the 87M unique character created over the course of five years has been released.
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."

Star Wars: The Old Republic just put out it's newest expansion, Knights of the Eternal Throne. So grab your lightsaber, pick up some power converters, and join TheHiveLeader as he forces his way through it. Puns.
It wasn't until the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion late last year that BioWare's vision for the future of SWTOR crystalized. The studio strongly shifted focus back towards what set the game apart from its peers: the story. But Fallen Empire wasn't without flaws. BioWare got caught up in the massive focus on story and seemed to forget the game was still an MMO. Thankfully, Knights of the Eternal Throne successfully strikes that balance and this bodes well for the game's future.
