Star Wars: The Old Republic | £18.95 | Cool Shop UK | PC

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a little bit of a World Of Warcraft clone, but if you don't mind that then you'll probably get hours and hours of enjoyment out of this one as you travel around blasting your enemies from afar or taking the more civilised approach and slicing them up with a lightsaber. Cool Shop UK are parting with copies of the game for £18.95, which'll save you just over £3 on the next best offers coming in from Amazon and Asda Direct.

Star Wars: The Old Republic | £31.37 With Code | Zavvi | PC

I've played very little of Star Wars: The Old Republic, but what I have played made me want more, which is dangerous because I really don't want to have my life taken over by an MMORPG. If you want to know what to expect from this one then I'd urge you to check out Carl's review. The voucher code listed above'll let you get hold of a copy of the game from Zavvi for £31.37, which should save you just over £3.50 on the next best offer coming in from The Hut. Thanks to Edtrix @ HUKD.

Star Wars The Old Republic Queues Mount

Bioware Taking The Issue "Seriously"

With reports emerging of players enduring server queues for up to two hours, Star Wars The Old Republic executive producer Jeff Hickman has posted an official notice informing players that Bioware takes the issue "seriously" and is actively addressing the problem. 140 servers were up and active over the weekend, but despite both Bioware and EA's best efforts to ensure the launch was as smooth as possible, even players who pre-ordered the game are being forced to wait before entering the clogged universe.

  • Where: The Hut | Zavvi
  • Current Price: £14.95
  • Standard Monthly Subscription: £8.99

If you’re gearing up for the official release on Tuesday, or even if you’re currently in the Early Access period, this one will save you a fair few pounds in a couple of ways. With this Time Card you can extend your stay beyond the free month, and it works out at £7.33 a month. With the next best offer at Bee being over £3.50 more expensive, and it saving you £1.50 over a standard monthly subscription from EA, it’s definitely worth noting for a genre where every little helps.

There aren't many MMO's out there that I want to buy and then invest a particularly large proportion of time into playing, however I do have more than a passing interest in Star Wars: The Old Republic. There are plenty of character classes to choose from, with Jedi and Sith characters inevitably set to become the most popular. You can pre-order a copy from Cool Shop UK for £27.29, which is just over £5.50 cheaper than the next best offers out there.
