New Expansion Coming - Star Wars Galaxies -

Sony Online Entertainment and Lucas Arts today announced that Star Wars Galaxies is poised to expand for the third time. "Star Wars Galaxies: Trials of Obi-Wan will bring much new content inspired by the third film.


Star Wars Galaxies™: Trials of Obi-Wan heats things up – literally! – with all new Mustafar content inspired by Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith

Leipzig Games Convention – Leipzig, Germany – August 19, 2005 – LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment Inc. (SOE) today unveiled Star Wars Galaxies: Trials of Obi-Wan to the cheers of Star Wars Galaxies™ enthusiasts gathered for a fan breakfast at the 2005 Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany. This third expansion to the popular immersive online game is scheduled for release on November 1st, alongside the Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith theatrical DVD and Star Wars Battlefront™ II video game. The companies also revealed that more than 1 million units of the Star Wars Galaxies franchise have now been sold, a testament to its ongoing popularity.

Like Obi-Wan Kenobi after his death, Star Wars Galaxies has become “more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” Appropriately, Trials of Obi-Wan allows players to better understand the meaning of these final words spoken by Luke Skywalker’s mentor, as they embark upon missions delivered directly from the spirit of the revered Jedi Master himself. From the very shores of molten lava where he defeated Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan guides players on quests that span the planet Mustafar – some of which might even convert devotees of the dark side over to a more virtuous path. This expansion features many new high-level quest rewards, including the ability to find a fiery red crystal found only on the volcanic planet that creates a lava-like lightsaber for the lucky owner. Players who fulfill all of Obi-Wan’s directives will also receive a rich reward.
