Star Wars: The Old Republic

After months of speculation, Bioware and Lucasarts have announced that a new Star Wars MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) is, indeed, in the works. Entitled Star Wars: The Old Republic, the game will be set in the period long prior to the events of Episode I, and will be continuous with the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic universe.

Anyone who might be gun shy about a Star Wars MMO after playing Star Wars: Galaxies can take heart that this is being helmed by Bioware, the makers of the aforementioned Knights of the Old Republic, as well as acclaimed games Baldur’s Gate, Jade Empire, and Mass Effect.

The game will give you the option to join the ranks of the Jedi or ally yourself with the evil Sith Lords. Being a gamer, and having spent some time with Bioware products, I can say that I am officially stoked for this. In fact, I think it has the potential to be the single greatest piece of Star Wars media to emerge since Empire Strikes Back. If nothing else, I’m confident the story associated with it will kick the shit out of Episodes I-III.

You can get more information, as well as some concept art and screenshots, at Gamespot and IGN. Also, an official website has been launched.
