Star Wars Galaxies MMO to Come to Mighty End

The Last Stand

Star Wars Galaxies is to come to an epic conclusion before the MMO shuts its doors for good on 15 December this year, according to a forum post on the official boards by Sony Online Entertainment.

Beginning in September, forces of the Empire and Rebellion will move towards their final battle. Whether you fight for imperial domination or freedom, winning new competitions and challenges will tally Galactic Civil War points; come December, whichever side has the most points will be rewarded with a magnificent endgame celebration, while the losers, apparently, will “go out with a bang”. Neutral players who prefer to sit out the major conflict between Light and Dark can host their own shutdown events.

If you want to participate, make sure you have a valid Star Wars Galaxies account before 15 September.

Now dated and largely deserted, the 2003 online RPG was sentenced to its doom earlier this year; Star Wars: The Old Republic, developed by BioWare, will carry the torch as its spiritual successor of sorts when it releases before the end of 2011.
