SOE has today launched its Star Wars MMO Clone Wars Adventures, which becomes the second Star Wars virtual world, and thus neatly pips The Old Republic to the post. Aimed at the younger Star Wars audience that’s thrilled to the Clones Wars series, toys and official stationery – or so I understand it – it’s a free to play* mini-game-based place that appears to be roughly analogous to Free Realms. It being Star Wars, expect crowds despite the rugrat-orientation. Details below. To be honest, there’s a lot of promise from this – yeah, it’ll be free from the grown-up roleplaying that such as we might demand, but creating a bunch of (hopefully) engaging interactive contact from a virtual world that’s achieved some resonance with kids is no bad thing. Well, perhaps apart from that “massive amounts of cash to George Lucas” stuff.
