  • Bioware Express

Did the Bioware “train” show up at Comic-Con?

Star Wars: The Old Republic Collector’s Edition, what will come with it? How much will it cost? Will they have a digital edition? How much game time will be included?

I asked those questions four hours earlier when I started writing this article, but had them answered around 3:23 am EST. The Old Republic “train” was an earlier morning express and delivered this gamer happiness! Bioware is offering a limited number of three versions in which can be pre-ordered online.

Standard Edition – Early game access, 30 days of game time, and a color stone for a lightsaber

Digital Deluxe Edition – Includes everything in the Standard Edition and also five in game items: Flare Gun, Training Droid, HoloDancer, HoloCam, STAP speeder

Limited Collector’s Edition – Includes everything in the Standard and Digital Deluxe editions and also contains two more digital items exclusive mouse droid and Collector’s Edition Store.

This limited edition also includes some nice collectibles like; Darth Malgus statue, Game Discs in collectible metal case, Journal of Master Gnost-Dural annotated by Satele Shan, Old Republic galaxy map, Security Authenticator key, Star Wars Old Republic music CD, and the Collector’s Edition box.

 

Despite all the information released about the CE, I had planned to buy this version. I didn’t weigh in what Bioware was going to give me in the collector’s edition. My love of Star Wars has prompted me to purchase several collector versions of movies, books, games, etc. What does it take for you to purchase a collector’s version or do you even buy special editions?  Let us know below in the comment section or join our forums here at CRR.

  • A Stormtrooper Making a Difference

We all grew up believing stormtroopers were only pawns for the Emperor’s evil plans, but one stormtrooper, Jacob French is walking for charity. Jacob French, a member of the famous 501st Legion, is walking 2400 miles in full trooper gear to raise money for the Starlight Foundation. On GeekSugar’s website, we read about his trek from Perth to Sydney all in the name of charity. Take some time and check this story out. Who says the Empire doesn’t have a heart?
