“LucasArts continues to be an excellent partner, giving our team unprecedented access so that we can continue to create a virtual world that expands beyond the storylines of the TV show in fun and creative ways,” said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. “This Free-to-Play game truly extends the ‘Clone Wars’ experience for fans and presents varying gameplay options to accommodate all types of players so that they can enjoy this game in a way that suits them best. We are thrilled to have more than 8 million registered players so quickly and look forward to seeing our community and games continue to grow as season four kicks off.”

Season four of the television series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, kicks off on September 16 with the inhabitants of the watery world of Mon Calamari on the brink of a civil war. Both the Jedi and Separatists will assemble amphibious forces to battle for control of the resource-rich planet. Fans of the series can log into CWA to play Mission on Iceberg 3 for an exclusive storyline that sets the stage for episode one of season four.

Additionally, SOE is creating a new mini-game Aquatic Assault, a top-down 2D action game set in the Mon Calamari battle depicted in the premiere episode of season four. Players will take control of Kit Fisto and his Diver Propulsion Vehicle and attempt to defeat waves of enemies including Aqua Droids, Quarren and Karkaradon.

 “Our partnership with Sony Online Entertainment has helped expand The Clone Wars franchise across multiple mediums, making the fan base stronger than ever,” said Mary Bihr, VP of Global Publishing at LucasArts. “Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures has reached this benchmark because of its authenticity to The Clone Wars storyline, immersive gameplay mechanics and easy online accessibility that caters to both young and old.”
