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.

Star Wars Galaxies, developed and published by LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment, 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.

Sony Online Entertainment is also offering eligible former players the opportunity to come back to Star Wars Galaxies for free between February 1 and March 1.  With the balance of power in the galaxy at stake, anyone who can tote a blaster or lend support is needed on the front lines!  Eligible player accounts will be automatically reactivated – players can simply log in to rejoin the action! For those who choose to re-subscribe before the free period ends, a special in-game painting will be given as a reward.

Come back now to join in massive invasions and build a legacy in the battle raging across the galaxy – where the movies end, your adventure begins! The promotional re-entitlement period begins February 1, 2010 and ends on March 1, 2010
