In only its first week, EA has announced that Star Wars: The Old Republic has already amassed over 1 million registered players.
EA even boasted that Star Wars: The Old Republic is the “fastest growing subscription MMO in history.” Considering the game only came out on December 20th, that is a lot of players for a game that costs gamers a monthly fee to play.
Here are the current stats for the game:
· Logged 28 million in-game hours – roughly equivalent to watching all six Star Wars movies, two million times
· Averaged well over five hours a day playing the game
· Created more than 3.8 million characters; 510,000 Jedi Knights and 550,000 Sith Warriors
· Killed more than 2 billion non-player characters in the eight days since Early Game Access began
