Virtual items include a Flare Gun, Training Droid, personal HoloDancer, HoloCam, the STAP vehicle and access to the Collector’s Store, an in-game store with new in-game items exclusively for owners of the Collector’s Edition.

The Old Republic is geared toward an immersive experience well beyond that of other MMORPGs and has strived to provide a wholly personalized, meaningful universe through the addition of story, thus leveling up the already potentially rich experience of an MMORPG. The game has already won numerous awards and will be available for open “Beta Testing Weekends” in September before its holiday release.
