The story takes place in the Star Wars fictional universe shortly after the establishment of a tenuous peace between the re-emergent Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, 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. 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. The Sith control Korriban, where they have re-established a Sith Academy. The game begins as new conflicts arise.
Not out until December, 2011 and already over a million fans. I went to an event for Electronic Arts and had my son beta test this new game on the computer. It is for the older age groups but it was Star Wars and there was no pulling him away.
Star Wars fans are still hungry for new material. And, from a lay person’s view point, watching my son, this is going to be a great game. At a cost of over $130 million dollars to make, this is one of the most expensive video games ever produced. With pre-orders breaking all of EA’s previous records, this is the holiday season’s hot item already.
