BioWare and LucasArts presented the Star Wars: The Old Republic panel at Comic-Con 2011. These two powerhouses are aiming to create the most immersive MMO experience you've ever played with The Old Republic. BioWare developers discussed development of a story-driven MMO, debuted new gameplay footage, and sprung a few surprises along the way.


Star Wars: The Old Republic
is the MMORPG you' ve been looking for. SW:ToR is currently in its beta, but the game has yet to receive a release date. Will the Star Wars: The Old Republic panel be where a date is confirmed?

Just so everyone knows, Comic-Con does not allow any broadcasting or live streaming of panels. So we'll record the panel, and later in the week, put this live so you can see it in all its glory.
