LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment today announced an exciting opportunity for new players to feel the Force of Star Wars Galaxies. Set for release on November 22, 2005, Star Wars Galaxies: The Starter Kit offers the most accessible, fun approach to the immersive online game you'll find this side of Endor.

Designed so that any gamer can feel like a true Jedi Master of the mouse and keyboard, The Starter Kit features vastly improved content meant to hyperspace players into their own personal Star Wars adventures easier and faster than ever before. By debuting such features as a simplified user interface and a fast-action combat system, LucasArts and SOE have completely redesigned the game's first 30 levels so that players are immediately engaged in their own Star Wars adventure.

With complete content from both Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided and Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed, as well as new material created just for the game, The Starter Kit allows players to explore the most dangerous planets of the Star Wars galaxy taking on the role of the famous iconic heroes – from bounty hunter to smuggler. The package includes an exclusive in-game personal X-wing® or TIE fighter, and at only $19.99 – plus 30 days of gameplay included with purchase – you won't have to sell your landspeeder in order to gain enough galactic credits to fulfill your destiny. It's never been easier to get into the game.

"We're giving Star Wars fans what they want – an accessible, fun online adventure that starts where Star Wars: Episode IV left off," said Nancy MacIntyre, senior director of Star Wars Galaxies. "Since June 2003, we've sold more than 1.5 million units of Star Wars Galaxies, and the game has continually improved. The Starter Kit gives fans of all abilities the opportunity to join thousands of Star Wars fans online in nonstop, easy-to-play Star Wars action."
