What is Star Wars the Old Republic?

Well what is “SWTOR” Star Wars The Old Republic is a MMORPG created by Bioware, EA and LucasArts. It is set over 3,000 years before Darth Vader and the Star Wars Universe we most know. According to Wikipeda “

The story takes place in the Star Wars fictional universe shortly after the establishment of a tenuous peace between the re-emergent SithEmpire and the Galactic Republic,[12] 300 years after the events of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games, and more than 3,500 years before the events in the Star Wars films.[13][14] The Jedi are held responsible for the success of the Sith during the devastating 28-year-long Great Galactic War (which led to the Treaty of Coruscant prior to the Cold War), and thus choose to relocate from Coruscant to Tython, where the Jedi Order had initially been founded, to seek guidance from the Force.[13][15] The Sith control Korriban, where they have re-established a Sith Academy.[16] The game begins 10 years later as new conflicts arise.[13]

A collaborative effort between BioWare, LucasArts and Dark Horse Comics has resulted in webcomics entitled Star Wars: The Old Republic – Threat of Peace and Star Wars: The Old Republic – Blood of the Empire, the purpose of which is to establish the backstory as the game opens.

BioWare has stated that the game will have a significant focus on the storyline.”

The Game will have two playable factions “Republic” and “Empire” and each faction will have four playable classes and each class having two advance classes.
