Star Wars The Old Republic

Bioware’s beloved Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO has finally arrived on Steam after nine years of release. 

Star Wars: The Old Republic originally released through a proprietary launcher and Origin back in 2011, back when EA refused to release their games through third-party services such as Steam.

Now, nine years after the original release of the game, the Star Wars MMO is now available on Valve’s storefront in its full free-to-play form. Star Wars: The Old Republic also has five expansions to play through for those who enjoy the base game.

“Star Wars: The Old Republic is the only massively multiplayer online game with a Free-to-Play option that puts you at the center of your own story-driven Star Wars saga,” says the official Steam description for Bioware’s MMO.

“With 5 narrative expansions, become the hero of your own Star Wars adventure as you choose your path down the Light or Dark side of the Force.”
