BioWare has no issue with you importing The Old Republic

Recommended Videos

Australians have a hard time when it comes to games, with exorbitant prices, Nintendo snubbery and outright bans. One game not coming to the island is Star Wars: The Old Republic, but BioWare has gamers’ backs. There will be no region locking, and fans have been indirectly encouraged to import.

“There are no plans to ‘region lock’ or ‘IP block’ players from the game. You may experience some latency issues if you’re not playing in a launch territory,” said Senior online community manager Stephen Reid. 

Publishers that region lock or otherwise block the importing of games to territories that aren’t receiving them always disgust me, so it’s very pleasant to see BioWare looking out for those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to play the game. They done good!
