Star Wars: The Old Republic pre-orders breaking records - 15 new screens here

Check out how BioWare's MMORPG is looking

EA has suggested that BioWare MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic is breaking internal pre-order records - as 15 new in-game screens appear online.


Speaking to investors last night, EA Games boss Frank Gibeau said: "In general, the pre-order numbers are ahead of our expectations on Star Wars. It's ahead of the curve that we plotted for what we need to do in terms of reaching our goals.

"It's about... it's the largest number we've done at EA in comparison to other titles. The next closest title is Battlefield 3, and it was up significantly from there.

"In terms of the beta test, we have thousands of people that are in current beta test going on right now, and we're learning a lot of great things and getting a lot of great telemetry that's improving the game on every new release."
