Those hankering to brandish a lightsaber and wield the power of the Dark Side needn’t wait any longer. Star Wars: The Old Republic is now available to 38 new territories located throughout Europe and the Middle East. An MMO that has gained notoriety more for name recognition and developer reputation than by breaking through traditional MMO conventions, SW: TOR currently boasts 1.7 million subscribers. Naturally the inclusion of 38 more countries should see this number rise dramatically.
Unfortunately, those new to the party missed out on the recent Rakghoul event, which for a limited time allowed players to acquire novelty items including pets and exclusive lightsaber crystals. You’d think Bioware would have been savvy enough to wait until the new servers were up before launching their first global event, but who am I to judge?
