If you’re a Star Wars fan, but you don’t live in the United States, I have some good news for you! EA announced that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be released in 38 more countries in Europe and the Middle East. At this time, however, there is no official list of countries that will be seeing the game for the first time.
EA did say that some countries will be having issues getting the game through their mandatory Origin service. Though they didn’t say why they’d have trouble, EA did say that Luxembourg and Tunisia will be countries that will have issues. It was also noted that subscription fees may be different from country to country.
The Old Republic started off strong, when it hit a peak of 1.7 million subscribers in February. Since then they’ve dropped off to 1.3, though it does appear that it’s leveling off at this point. Those numbers should only increase, when we see TOR hit the rest of the world.
