Star Wars: The Old Republic is a Free-to-Play MMO where you team up with friends online to fight in heroic battles between the Republic and Empire, exploring a galaxy of vibrant planets and experiencing visceral Star Wars combat.

Players can choose to play as Jedi, Sith, or a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, defining their personal story and determining their path down the light or dark side of the Force. Along the way, players will befriend courageous companions who will fight at their side or possibly betray them, based on the players’ actions. Players can also choose to team up with friends to battle enemies and overcome incredible challenges using dynamic Star Wars combat.

In Knights of the Eternal Throne, players can experience the thrill of taking command as the ultimate ruler of the galaxy for the first-time ever in a Star Wars game. Players take on the role of the Outlander, leading an explosive fight for control against the most powerful family in the Eternal Empire. In their quest for the throne, players make choices that influence the galaxy for the light or dark side of the Force, ultimately deciding who will live, who will die and who will rule the galaxy.

After conquering the throne, players can grow their power and influence in the all-new Galactic Command progression system featuring visceral, fast-action Star Wars combat. With multiple challenge modes to choose from, everyone can play their way. In new Uprisings, players will join with three allies to confront enemy factions rising up to challenge their command while earning rare and powerful rewards. In every battle, players will have to choose a side in the ongoing Dark vs. Light Side War. As the dark or light side takes control, battles will erupt across the galaxy – offering big group battles that bring players together like never before to shift the balance of the Force to their side.

Rally your troops for battle as rivals, traitors, and rogues alike seek to challenge your rule in Knights of the Eternal Throne. Whether you’re fighting alongside allies in five new Uprisings or proving your combat mastery in Master Mode story Chapters, the time has come to DEFEND THE THRONE!

Unlock all this and more with the new Galactic Command system when you reach Level 70 in the new expansion. From Uprisings to Dark vs. Light Battles, Knights of the Eternal Throne puts you in command of the galaxy!
