Electronic Arts has a new Star Wars massively multiplayer online role-playing game on the market, Star Wars: The Old Republic, but that isn't keeping Sony Online Entertainment's Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures from reaching a new user milestone.

It appears a party is in order.

Sony announced today that the free-to-play MMORPG has more than 10 million registered players. The game launched in 2010 for the PC and is based on the Cartoon Network show Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Looking ahead, Sony said gamers can expect to encounter the nefarious and once-bisected Sith Lord Darth Maul in a new content update due March 15. Players will be able to interact with the horned bad guy in "three different ways" to earn a new player title and amass other rewards.

The arrival of Darth Maul in Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures coincides with the Sith's return in season four of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which premiered last September.

As for EA's Star Wars MMOG, The Old Republic shipped in December 2011 and sold 2 million units by the publisher's latest count. The game boasts 1.7 million subscribers, who each pay $15 per month to continue playing.

If you are a great Star Wars fan the game SWTOR is worth getting. Otherwise, as i say to all my friends, stick to WoW. Only the story part is new compared to WoW anyway so its the Star Wars lore and class stories.

I'm betting EA staff created 500,000 account on their own. This game is a mess.

@shafe-man SWTOR is my first mmo (well APB was but look how that turned out) I think it is pretty awesome. If you're a star wars fan then I would pick it up.

I have never heard of this F2P title. If it has 10 million users you think I would have.

Ah, Darth Maul. A fitting name really, considering he got cut in GOD DAMN HALF. I'm thinking about buying SWTOR, simply because of how massive the game looks, but I'm wary of spending even $5 a month for anything; I consider a game sale final, which is also why I reject F2P games. But I'm willing to set aside that fear if I can obtain a yearly deal or something that at least reduces the average to $10 a month; it just looks like too great a game to pass by.
