There isn’t a solid release date for Bioware’s upcoming MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, but gamers who are subscribers to their e-mail or who follow via Facebook, got a nice little announcement this afternoon.
Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the new Guild Headquarters (HQ) as well as the Pre-Launch Guild Program. Many members of the community have already been organizing guilds on the forums, and we’re now happy to provide the tools to officially register and reserve your guild’s name. In this new section of the website, you can search for an existing guild to join or you can create a new guild and begin recruiting members. When Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ launches, you may be able to import your guild directly into the game, subject to availability and meeting certain criteria*.
To learn more about guilds in The Old Republic, check out the Guilds Game System page for details, and to search for or join a guild, visit the Guild HQ now! Also be sure to visit the Guilds FAQ for answers to commonly asked questions.
*Conditions and restrictions apply. See Guilds FAQ for full details.
This is a great chance to get things started up before the game launches because, lets face it, we rather be playing than creating a guild once the game finally releases.
