The Old Republic at Comic-Con!

San Diego Comic-Con is the single largest pop culture event in North America, attracting over one hundred thousand passionate comic book, movie and video game fans each year. This year is looking to be another big year for the event and both BioWare and LucasArts will be there to make some announcements about Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, and once more give people the chance to get their hands on the game.

At 3:30PM on Thursday, July 21st our panel for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be held inside room #6BCF. During the panel we will be answering questions from the audience, giving away some items, showing new gameplay footage and making some announcements!

For people who can’t make it to the Star Wars: The Old Republic panel, they can still get some hands-on time with the game on the showfloor. Located inside the Star Wars™ Pavilion (booth #2913), we will have game stations set up for attendees to get a little bit of time exploring one of our four Origin Worlds, the starter planets for each class. These stations will be open during all four days of the show.
