Star Wars Galaxies Date & Subscriptions

A press release on The Star Wars Galaxies Website (thanks Jody Overstreet and SWG Warcry) has a release date for the Star Wars MMORPG as well as a description of the game's subscription plans. Here's a bit:

LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment Inc. today announced Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, the highly anticipated initial installment of the first Star Wars massively multiplayer online (MMO) game series, will release June 26, 2003. The Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided online fan community now exceeds more than 500,000 registered members.

At launch Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided will offer four subscription plan options: Month-to-month - $14.99; three months - $14.00 per month; six months - $13.00 per month; and 12 months - $12.00 per month. By subscribing to any of the latter three plans, players can expect savings of up to 20 percent over the month-to-month rate. Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided has a suggested retail price of $49.95, and includes a 30-day subscription to the game. A special collector's edition, which includes a book of game-related art, in-game wearables, pewter figurine, lapel pin and patch, and a signed manual, will be available for a suggested retail price of $79.95.

133. I would give it a month or two! Jun 19, 2003, 09:14 Serby
 
The pressed CD is older than what we are currently testing! My guess is this..the last patch took 5+ hours to download.
I say they pushed that patch out for that patch makes it the shelf version that gets pressed

We work on looking for bugs they fix what they can up till the 17th, thats when the cd's would have to be pressed and boxed to meet shipping dates.

When people log on on the 26th, another large patch to fix some of the problems from the last patch will go out
they are patching today...
So todays patch will go out on the 26th when people log on along with the new stuff we find after tonights patch.

Plus, people will also be bitching about the 3500 player limit cap on servers..

Major f'in problems for the dev team!
I'm not activating my free month probably till August when the major patches are through and problems get semi-fixed.
