Be part of the SWTOR Launch on 12.20.2011!

On December 20th, 2011, BioWare and LucasArts will be launching Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. To celebrate the game’s release, we are hosting a series of launch events in several major cities in both North America and Europe! In the US, we have partnered with Best Buy to host launch night events at the Best Buy Union Square in New York City and the Best Buy South Austin in Austin, Texas.

Members of the Star Wars: The Old Republic development team will be on hand at each location, including BioWare Co-Founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk in New York, as well as James Ohlen and Rich Vogel in Austin! Fans attending these events may be able to get their hands on swag, take part in Q&As with the developers, and even get their copy of the game signed!

For our European fans, we will also be holding events in London and Paris! In Paris, we’ll be having a launch event at the Virgin Megastore located on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées on December 14th. Those attending will have the chance to meet Technical Design Director, Emmanuel Lusinchi.

We will also be having a launch event at the Oxford Street GAME in London on December 14th. Fans who make it out to this event will have the opportunity to spend some time with Alexander Freed, Writer on Star Wars: The Old Republic and author of both the “Blood of the Empire” and “The Lost Suns” series of comics.

For the London launch....
Star Wars fans – the moment is here! How much would you like to go to our EXCLUSIVE launch event for Star Wars: The Old Republic?!

We have 50 pairs of tickets to the exclusive launch event on Wednesday 14th December where you can meet one of the senior writers for SW:TOR from Bioware and get to spend time with Star Wars actor and friend of Ricky Gervais, Warwick Davis.

  • The event will take place in a Central London location
  • There will be special prizes given away on the night including an Alienware laptop
  • And you can get to meet the 501st Legion of Stormtroopers!

Editor's Note: Very peculiar that Bioware with a Canadian background is not having a launch in Canada. Hopefully Canada and Germany will have some last minute events added before launch!
