Galactic Starfighter is a free-to-play digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic that ads 12 versus 12 space battles, customizable and upgradeable starships, plus multiple battle zones and gameplay modes.
"Our goal with Star Wars: The Old Republic has always been to immerse players into their own Star Wars adventure and huge space battles are a vital part of fulfilling that fantasy," said Jeff Hickman, General Manager of BioWare Austin. "Galactic Starfighter will be a deep experience that will continue to grow over time. We can’t wait for both our current and new players to get their hands on it soon."
Star Wars: The Old Republic subscribers will receive access to the expansion first on Dec. 3 and an exclusive Galactic Starfighter early Gunship unlock, custom Gunship paint jobs, two pilot suits and two titles for those that have subscribed by Nov. 1. "Preferred Status Players" will gain access to Galactic Starfighter on Jan. 14 with two pilots and the "Test Pilot" title. It then opens to everyone as a free-to-play digital expansion on Feb. 4.
