Star Wars: The Old Republic was expected to have a big launch and it appears the game's living up to those expectations. Publisher Electronic Arts announced today that the game already has over one million registered players.
The game officially went live in North America and Europe on December 20th. However, some players were able to play as early as December 13th due to the game's early access period. BioWare granted early access to pre-order customers in the order that they reserved their copy. During this week and a half, the player base has racked up some impressive stats:
Old Republic is set thousands of years before the films. The Galactic Republic and Sith Empire are battling for dominance of the galaxy. Players can become Jedi, Sith, bounty hunters and more. Their adventures will take them to several prominent planets in Star Wars lore, including Alderaan and Tatooine.
