Star Wars Galaxies gets Complete collection

Original MMO game, three expansions, bonus DVD land in stores this November for $29.99; extra content includes exclusive in-game item.

Later this year, Star Wars collectors will want to stop working on their dogs' Boba Fett costumes and head down to their local game retailers. LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment have announced that Star Wars Galaxies: The Complete Online Adventures will hit stores this November.

The collection, which will retail for $29.99, includes the massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, as well as the PC game's three expansions--Jump to Lightspeed, Rage of the Wookies, and Trials of Obi-Wan.

However, it's the bonus DVD that's included in the package that will really tempt hardcore Star Wars fans. Gamers who pick up the collection will have access to an exclusive in-game item--the AT-RT, a personal bipedal transport. The DVD will also include a slide show featuring never-before-seen concept art, an excerpt from the SWG book From Pencil to Pixel, and the requisite interviews with the series' development team.

LucasArts and SOE have also promised to keep the game fresh through 2006 and into 2007 with regular content updates and downloadable missions.

personaly i think that this was a pretty descent game and was about to sign up when i realized it was pay to play... basicly what i'm saying is that more players might descide to come back and more will join if they new that it was still there but not taking their hard earned cash out of their pocket if you now what i'm saying

Buy it up, kiddies! Get your copy pre ordered so you get your robot walker. Don't worry, they won't do anything shady like shut down servers in the next month. They wouldn't sell a "new" product and do something shady....Um,....Wait......I see a blue glowie Obi Wan on trial for fraud.......

Don't waste money on this game. Since it was dumbed down last November the game was ruined and most players have left. If you spend a lot of time to accomplish something in this game, it will just be all for nothing when the developers decide to revamp it again. SWG is on its last legs, find another MMO to kill time with.

This game's awful, I feel sorry for anyone who wastes money on this new set. I played both the orignal and retooled versions, and liked neither. The first I disliked because of the economy and the boringness of being new. The fact that I got dumped in a city I didn't want to be in on Tatooine didn't help. All I wanted was a nice little job, some socialising and a speederbike. It would have taken weeks to get the bike, since I hated the missions with a white ho passion. The job I wanted was tangled in at he top of the ill-advised combined skills/proffessions system. When I played the retooled version, I sort of went "...Ferh...This isn't very Star Wars...These spaceships suck...And why is it so spartan..?" before logging off. Come on LucasArts, do the decent thing, get another developer to make a new SW MMORPG.

I remember when I use to play SWG with my brother. It took him a whole year just to get Jedi. I was thinking about getting back on it too because I had not palyed it for two years and I thought it would be great to see what new things had been added to it. But the thing is when I went to look for a game card at my local stores I couldn't find any for **** My brother told me that they stop carrying them for some reason and then he went to one last store and they told him that Sony wasn't treating the players right. I was like WTF! So in the end I got WOW. And wow if it isn't fun!!! Which it is.

Being it back to pre-NGE and i just might buy that SOE.Yeah, like that'll ever happen.

Wow this piece of crap won't sell I mean quite honestly I think they're gonna lose money making this. The game has been boned, gutted, and hanged on a wall. The NGE ruined this game and SOE is my new most hated company. For some odd reason they thought it was a good idea to become a Jedi first second you were on. While in the movies a real Jedi took time and you gradually became one through Skill, Mastery, and a little bit of luck.

Sweet! The longer I don't play, the better this game gets. >_>

The NGE totally ruined the game, it's not even an RPG any more just an arcade shooter. Tried it for a while then finally canceled, haven't even played it any more even though prepaid for a year.

Am I the only one who laughed at starwarsfr3ak for complaining about SWG being 'Work' even though he could have stopped playing the moment it wasn't fun anymore? You have no one to blame but yourself. Let me get things straight. I'm an avid SW fan, as you can tell, and I loved SWG. I was more or less addicted to it, and only stayed in its waning phase because of the friends I had and the rare items I had (well over a thousand items across multiple houses). I was honestly contemplating selling my account through a reputable company (I know people have harsh views about this but before I get accused - I work full time, am up to my head in bills, and recently had expensive surgery - so yeah, I could have used the money, and it's ones own choice to buy a premade account. Moving on.) But alas, I got banned instead. Anyway, I meant to say that it was really my first MMO that I stuck with, and became addicted with. I kept hoping things would pull through, but I saw the game crumble around me, along with good friends leaving in disgust. So that's my end of the story.

SOE is an abomination of a corporation. If there was an Empire, they'd be it. 2 years I spent on that game. 2 hard years of work, as I call it. Because that's what it turned into. Work. Not play. 2 years, and I get banned for blowing my lid (with colorful remarks) on some griefing player. Not only am I banned but I am banned from any game SOE makes (they claim if they find information related to my original account info, it will be immediately terminated). SOE is a completely soulless company, I'll never do business with them again (not that I can anyway, HAH!) Anyway, SWG did go downhill. It was so great, especially in it's beta days (I remember making a Krayt dragon angry with a CDEF pistol and then running like mad, haha). That last big overhaul they did was atrocious...a lot of people quit. Wish I had done the same sooner. Over $400 invested in that game...never again!

Meh. Let me know when there's a console version - or at least SOMETHING regarding any NEW Star Wars games. Thrillville? Traxion? Come on, LA!

How many idiots are going to buy this so they can have the AT-RT? Anytime you want to admit defeat SOE, your old consumers will approve and play a Star Wars MMO that is produced by a company with business ethics.

I agree with blackice, redo the whole thing from scratch. New engine, classes, abilities etc. I don't know why they didn't take a lot of material from the pen and paper rpg. I love those classes and abilities, even the jedi ones. I and many others left for a reason SOE/Lucasarts. Figure it out and get back to me.

runstalker

Start SWG 2 already. The first one is a wash. I'd say "Nice try", but I would only be refering to SOE's efforts in the last 6 months. It's been a clunky, uninspiring ride from the start. I'm happy I don't play, but can check it out any time at a co-worker's house. I always give him my sympathies :)

Wait...werent those expansions made worthless with the new changes?

Yeah, they lost a lot of players when they re-tooled the classes or whatever a while back and pissed off all those longtime players.

Not sure how well this will sell seeing as SWG has not been fun in a long time.But nice to see they have not given up on it yet.I would love to see a complete make over on SWG but that would take to long and a lot more money.So I do not see that happening.
