Galactic starfighters arrived in Star Wars: The Old Republic today for players with Preferred Early Access to the game.

According to developer Bioware, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game's second expansion, Galactic Starfighter, will be available to everyone else February 4th. One of the main features of the new expansion is the addition of 12 vs 12 space battles, a feature sorely missing since its launch back in 2011.

The new starships are now available for anyone who was once a subscriber of the MMO or has purchased items in Star Wars: The Old Republic's store. Those who qualify and join during the Preferred Early Access period will get access to new pilot suits and the in-game designation of "Test Pilot."

Check out the trailer below showing off the new space battles and a glimpse at each of the available starships on offer.

Hrm, tried to let a small update run before to check this out, turned out my main harddrive was full and the install got corrupted somewhere, running the fix process has taken like 6 hours and has download 12 gig, and says it's only 29% done. Well, this is exciting.

Anyone still playing this since they removed the oceanic servers? I enjoyed it and tempted to play it when I'm back at Uni.

I loved the game so much, I had a big nerd boner for it. I'd done everything in the game 3 x over and enjoyed it immensely, I had to stop playing as I had nothing to do but log on and socialise and as my guild dwindled in size that really wasn't worth while... Sadly the closure of the Oceanic servers means I will likely never go back.

This is actually a surprisingly capable space flight sim thing, way more than I expected in an mmo. Took about half an hour just to figure out a control mapping that I could manage to fly in a straight line with (I tend to hold A and D whenever I do anything due to battlefield control mapping, so ended up making those strafe, and q and e roll), but once you learn to be very cautious with the mouse, it's pretty good.
