Electronic Arts has confirmed that gamers can now pre-order Star Wars: The Old Republic Collector’s Edition and will get to play the game earlier than the release date.
The Collector’s Edition, that was rumored about earlier, will arrive along with the Deluxe Edition and Standard Edition. The Collector’s Edition will be available for $149.99 and the deluxe edition for $79.99.
The Deluxe Edition of The Old Republic will include a HoloCam, personal HoloDancer, the STAP vehicle, a Flare Gun and a Training Droid. All the editions will arrive with a 30 days free game-play bonus.
Extra inclusions in the Collector’s Edition will consist of a Darth Malgus Statue from Gentle Giant, The Music of The Old Republic soundtrack, a security key and a map of the in-game Star Wars galaxy.
“We are targeting Star Wars: The Old Republic to be one of the biggest launches of holiday 2011,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Group General Manager and Co-Founder, BioWare and Senior Vice President, Electronic Arts. “Our teams at BioWare and EA, along with our partners at LucasArts, are laser-focused on creating a high quality game, but just as importantly, they are resolute in delivering a high quality service.
We are taking all of the necessary steps to make sure The Old Republic has a thriving community built on a stable online foundation from day one, including limiting supply at launch to ensure that players easily transition into the servers, he added. So whether you’re waiting to join the Empire or the Republic, pre-order now to ensure you can enter the galaxy at launch!”
The base edition of the game, the Standard Edition, is available for $59.99, EA’s official website reported.
