Anyone who previously subbed to Star Wars Galaxies will be able to play for free between February 1st and March 1st. This coincides with "Forces Under Siege", which is a hugely territory conflict add-on, which will allow players to contest for control of major cities. A captured city will confer benefits, such as quests and useful NPCs, to the controlling power. The Imperial types get to drive AT-ATs, so presumably they'll win hands down. Could this be the last hurrah for Galaxies with The Old Republic on the horizon?
Dave Tosser says: God, I'm so lonely. Years ago I was in a relationship with a wookiee called AarrraaooOOOaaaarr. She knew how to treat a man. These days though there's no one. I guess AarrraaooOOOaaaarr is playing World Of Warcraft like everyone else. I'd never be able to find her. Perhaps I should go shopping. Helping out capitalism is always an experience of deep poignancy for me. And that gin doesn't buy itself!
