Star Wars: The Old Republic Galactic Starfighter Enters Early Access

If you've ever had a subscription to BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, or purchased something from the online store since the game went free-to-play, then you have achieved Preferred Status, and now have early access into the Galactic Starfighter expansion.

As an intergalactic war explodes across the universe, Star Wars: The Old Republic players will be able to jump into 12v12 Player-vs-Player dogfights. Gamers who like the piloting role can attack their foes with a heavy-hitting Gunship (check out the trailer below). This new digital expansion will become free to the rest of the public beginning on February 4.

  • I still want a new KOTOR that isn't an MMO.
  • I am so addicted to this game its ridiculous. At first I was mad because I wanted a new KOTOR, but imo this is so much better. The amount of content in this game is staggering.
  • let the next generation of star wars cash grabs begin.
  • The expansion really isn't that good. I've been playing it since December off and on, and it was really a let down.

  • I don't know why BioWare doesn't want a new influx of cash.

    If EA or whoever let them work on a new KOTOR I would throw my entire wallet at them. TAKE MY MONEY DAMMIT!

  • ...still actually more interested in Attack Squadrons, mainly because I expect that game to be less freemium about the space flight. Otherwise, YAY! SOMETHING WE'VE ONLY BEEN ASKING LIKE A DECADE FOR!

  • I'm sorry, these ships do don't do it for me - they're not star wars...y enough. To me they look more like something out of Wing Commander. Just my opinion though.

    Haven't played this game since release, but I still get the gut feeling that EA/Bioware are grasping at straws with everything they release or do, to try lure people in.

    But I dunno, as I said haven't played for ages - so feel free to correct me, if I'm wrong.

  • A spaceship.... that can snipe? How, HOW does that make any sense?!??!?!
  • to bad they didnt have this on release of the game. THIS is what we asked for back then =/

  • Why do this when all people want is a competent X-Wing remake.
