Yes, EU fans of Star Wars The Old Republic, hell has officially frozen over, the dead will walk the earth and a highly anticipated massive multiplayer game will release earlier than originally announced. Bioware has now stated that the original date of 22nd December for EU players and 20th for US will be brought in line so both can begin playing on the 20th of December. That’s two whole extra days before santa even dares drop his sack in your chimney!

While we’re at it, Bioware have also released a new trailer showing the characters from the cinematic trailers over the past few years featured in-game.
