Ever wanted a 12 vs 12 PvP battle in the stars, piloting your scout or gunship?
Star Wars: The Old Republic is finally about to let you become a galactic warrior, conquering the stars, in its latest DLC expansion Galactic Starfighter. Epic 12 vs. 12 battles await, with you dodging in and out of an asteroid belt, trying to get a good shot at your opponent before someone puts the blast on you. Current players who have, or get, Early Access will be enjoying this by December 3rd, while Preferred Status players get this January 14th 2014; everyone else will have to wait until February 14th 2014 to enjoy this free to play offering.
"Our goal with Star Wars: The Old Republic has always been to immerse players into their own Star Wars adventure and huge space battles are a vital part of fulfilling that fantasy," says Jeff Hickman, General Manager of BioWare Austin. The Early Access mob get exclusive paint jobs for their fighter, two pilot suits, and two special titles - Test Pilot and First Galactic Starfighter - of their own. Those with Preferred get two pilot suits and the Test Pilot title, in addition to their early entry to Galactic Starfighter.
Wondering how you get to be Early or Preferred? Well, if you're a former subscriber who dropped off the radar, you get to be Preferred just by rejoining the Old Republic universe. Or you can buy something - anything - from the online store, to get Preferred status. Early status will only be offered to those who have an active subscription on or before November 1st.
