Featuring an in-depth storyline and high quality production, the game is now free-to-play with an optional subscription. Set over a thousand years before the tale of the movies, players can choose between joining the Sith Empire or the Galactic Republic in a time that peace seems to have vanished from the universe.

Either way you're sure to enjoy the many space themed encounters ahead of you!
