Star Wars: The Old Republic: 1 million gamers strong already

Star Wars: The Old Republic has over 1 million players already according to stats released by EA, Bioware, and LucasArts even though the game launched just 7 days ago.

The Massive Multiplayer Online game, billed as the most expensive game ever due to its huge size and scale, sees gamers choose to play a range of different characters in the Star Wars universe.

Instead of getting full and fat on turkey and all the trimmings, SWTOR gamers have racked up a litany of stats for EA to brag about a week after launch day.

So far the 1m gamers have racked up over 60 million in-game hours, which is roughly equivalent to watching all six Star Wars movies over 4 million times.

Those playing appear to have a calling to the dark side too with EA also telling us that over 850,000 Sith Warriors have been created compared to 810,000 Jedi Knights, surprisingly it looks like most haven't bothered becoming Troopers. 

Other stats include over 260 million quests completed, over 44 million PvP battles, over 9 million space combat missions completed, and over 3 billion NPCs killed.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is set thousands of years before the classic Star Wars movies, with the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire locked in the middle of an epic, galactic war.

Players choose one of eight iconic Star Wars characters, including the Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, Smuggler, Trooper, Sith Warrior, Sith Inquisitor, Bounty Hunter and Imperial Agent.
