Star Wars: The Old Republic
Published by: Lucasarts,Electronic Arts
Developed by: BioWare
Release Date: TBA
The Old Republic takes place 300 years after the events of the original Knights of the Old Republic games, or about 3,600 years before the events of the films. While story elements from the first two games will "definitely play a role," much has changed since the end of KOTOR II. The old Sith Empire, which had been banished into deep space after nearly being exterminated by the Galactic Republic, has reemerged.
Like other MMOs, The Old Republic will have two factions--the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire.
BioWare is confident that The Old Republic's story will focus on character and affect gameplay like no other MMORPG before. "Because our stories revolve around a player's class, his role, we're able to tell stories that are very focused on who the player is, which is something other BioWare games haven't been able to do,"
