Star Wars: The Old Republic Is Getting Space Combat

By: Zach Walton - January 14, 2014

Star Wars: The Old Republic is still chugging along as it attempts to keep its current players and attract new players and subscribers to the game. It has done this through a number of new expansions to the game, but the latest expansion may just attract players who want a return to the gameplay seen in TIE Fighter.

BioWare announced today that Star Wars: The Old Republic: Galactic Starfighter is now available to preferred early access players. The new expansion gives each player a customizable starfighter in which they can take into 12v12 matches.

The Galactic Starfighter expansion was made available to subscribers back in December, but now it’s available in the hands of more players. The expansion is still rolling out, however, as it won’t be generally available to all players until February 14.

Check out the below trailer to see a glimpse of what Galactic Starfighter brings to the The Old Republic:
