BioWare has launched a pre-launch guild program for Star Wars: The Old Republic.
The studio said many members of the community have already been organising guilds on the forums, and so it wanted to provide the tools to officially register and reserve guild names.
When The Old Republic launches, you'll be able to import your guild directly into the game, subject to availability and meeting certain criteria.
BioWare said: "Every guild gets its own guild mini-site on www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com, complete with information about the guild, its recruitment status, and its own public and private forums.
"Create or join a guild now and you'll have the opportunity to have your own space to socialize and organize before the game launches. Every guild is automatically entered into the searchable guild database, which makes it easy for players to find their ideal guild. Get your guild together early and get ready for The Old Republic."
Last month, EA boss John Riccitiello said the company wants the No.1 spot in the MMO subscription market currently held by Blizzard's World of Warcraft.
