LucasArts and BioWare are expanding the universe of The Old Republic. This April, Dark Horse Comics will be collecting the Star Wars: The Old Republic comic Threat of Peace and forging it into a new 96-page trade paperback, but that's not all. Threat of Peace author Rob Chestney will also be writing a new, original short story for The Old Republic for online publication at

LucasArts and BioWare are forging a new Star Wars™ era of epic adventure with their forthcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game, Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. Set more than 3,500 years in the past of the far-away galaxy, the game occurs in a time when the Jedi and the Galactic Republic clashed with the Sith Empire. It is an era rich with storytelling opportunities not only for players, but for fans of Star Wars literature.
