The Art And Making Of SW: The Old Republic

Posted By Mike on November 14, 2011

This is your friendly TFN reminder that The Art and Making of Star Wars: The Old Republic will be available on December 1, 2011 from Chronicle Books. Written by Frank Parisi and Daniel Erickson, this looks to be a nice way to get yourself excited for the game's impending release. Here's the description from Amazon:

"Star Wars fans the world over are buzzing in anticipation of what promises to be a defining moment in the history of multiplayer online gaming: the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic. The game follows the escalating war between the Jedi and the Sith thousands of years before the events of the Star Wars films, and its innovative design allows players to choose sides and help shape the history of the galaxy. This gorgeous, full-color volume features the detailed art behind this highly anticipated release from BioWare and LucasArts. With character sketches, interviews, and artwork featuring the game s new weapons, starships, and previously unexplored worlds, The Art and Making of Star Wars: The Old Republic is the ultimate chronicle of the newest Star Wars experience."

While The Art And Making Of Star Wars: The Old Republic is available now, the MMO itself is scheduled for release on December 20th in North American and European Territories.


UPDATE: Here's the official press release from Chronicle Books. Note that I've also adjusted the text above to correct the publication date of December 1st.
