Star Wars: The Old Republic finally dated for Oz

After a successful release in North America and Europe, BioWare, a Label of Electronic Arts, announced today that the fastest growing subscription MMO ever, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will be officially launching in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore on March 1, 2012.

Fans in those regions will be able to play the critically-acclaimed massively multiplayer online game on regional servers, enjoying the story-driven experience that has captivated gamers worldwide. Players in these countries who currently have or have had an active Star Wars: The Old Republic account prior to February 28, 2012 will have the opportunity to request a free character transfer for a limited time to an Asia Pacific server after the launch on March 1, 2012. All players who qualify for a character transfer will be notified in early March with more details.

A win for Aussie (and Kiwi) gamers.
