What is Star Wars Galaxies?

Star Wars Galaxies was a Star Wars themed massively multiplayer online role-playing (MMORPG) for Microsoft Windows, developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts. Star Wars Galaxies was officially shut down on December 15, 2011.


What is Star Wars Galaxies Pre-CU and why bring it back?

Star Wars Galaxies Pre-CU (Pre-Combat Upgrade) refers to the game as it was played during and prior to the publish 14.1 of the game, just before the "Combat Upgrade" (CU) was implemented.

Many SWG fans agree that Pre-CU was the high point of the game, while the level based CU update changed the game for the worse.

It is our goal here at SWG Awakening to bring SWG Pre-CU back to the masses in all its glory.
