Star Wars: The Old Republic announced for PC

The spiritual successor to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

Star Wars and World of Warcraft fans, rejoice. Your two favorite things are about to collide.

LucasArts and BioWare Tuesday announced Star Wars: The Old Republic, the spiritual successor to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic with an MMO twist and planned for release on PC.

But unlike other MMOs, the tag-team publishers promised an extra helping of story in The Old Republic, in addition to the combat, exploration, and character progression that genre fans have come to expect.

"Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the most critically acclaimed Star Wars game in LucasArts' history, and a preeminent example of our company's storytelling heritage," said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts, in a statement. "For a long time, we've wanted to return to the franchise in a grand way, and we felt that the best setting for it was an online world that would allow millions of people to participate in the experience together."

Players can choose to play as Jedi, Sith, or other classic Star Wars classes, says LucasArts, and define their own path as Dark Side sympathises or Force-loving rebels. As expected, players can also team up with friends online for power in numbers.

A release date was not announced.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
