Star Wars Galaxies immerses players in the rich Star Wars universe featuring dynamic adventures across multiple planets in the classic Star Wars time frame and offering a unique combination of combat, exploration, social interaction, specialized missions, and daring quests.

"Almost immediately we were seeing thousands of players interacting simultaneously, building communities and creating in-game events like player weddings, store openings and many other inventive activities," said Simon Jeffery, president of LucasArts. "We'll soon be introducing new features and content that will enhance the experience for existing players as well as casual gamers or Star Wars fans who might be new to the MMO genre. The best is yet to come!"

"After three years of intense development and high anticipation, we felt that we had an amazing game on our hands, but you're never sure of your success until you get the ultimate validation from the players," said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. "Sony Online and LucasArts have been very successful in communicating with the game's very active fan base and incorporating their feedback to continue improving the experience."

The Star Wars Galaxies development team continues to work on a variety of new content and features such as player-owned ground vehicles, player mounts and player cities, along with substantial new content to be introduced in the coming months.

In Star Wars Galaxies, for the first time thousands of players can live the Star Wars saga and become immersed in the classic Star Wars universe simultaneously. Players can interact with characters from classic Star Wars including Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo and many other favorites on 10 different planets/environments in the largest Star Wars game in history.
