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.

LucasArts revealed that it will be shutting down 12 of its current 25 servers on Thursday, October 15, 2009, at 4:40 PM Pacific Time in order to increase population on the remaining servers. People who need to move their character are being offered a free transfer.

Star Wars Galaxies is one of the longest-running and most popular online experiences, bringing gamers of all ages and skill levels together in the ultimate Star Wars journey. Begin aboard the Millennium Falcon helping Han Solo and Chewbacca fend off the notorious Darth Vader. Along the way, join with Star Wars characters on missions that span the galaxy. Ally with the Rebels to fight against the Galactic Empire, or join forces with the dark side and crush the Rebel scum. Heroic adventurers can seek their fortune in space or on the ground as a bounty hunter, smuggler, Jedi or a host of other unique Star Wars professions.
