For many years Electronic Arts games skipped Steam and were only available on Origin. Last year, however, the publisher started a slow return to Valve's platform and so far it has been very successful. We've already written about the renaissance of Titanfall 2, and now the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic has achieved similar success.
The project hit Steam yesterday. The record of activity that day was 25 508 people. This is a result that many newer games may be envious of. Moreover, it will undoubtedly be broken soon, as Sundays are traditionally the days when most people play.
Star Wars: The Old Republic uses a F2P model with microtransactions, so many players have probably tried the title out of curiosity. However, the game not only achieves impressive activity results, but has also met with a warm welcome. 88% of Steam user ratings are positive.
Star Wars: The Old Republic is available exclusively on PC. The game debuted in 2011 and is still being developed. Last year a large add-on titled Onslaught was released. We hope that the debut on Steam will permanently increase the population of players and thus increase the chances for further expansions.
