Welcome to SWg Awakening Pre-Cu!

SWG Awakening is a Pre-CU based Star Wars Galaxies Server powered by SWGEmu. Awakening's goal is to revive Star Wars Galaxies and bring back Pre-CU in all its glory! Awakening has a unique Jedi unlock system, that NO other server incorporates. The goal with this new Jedi system is to bring back some mystery when obtaining Jedi.

To play on Awakening, you will need a copy of the original Star Wars Galaxies client. An Empire Divided, The Total Experience, or The Complete Online Adventures is required. Clients obtained through illegal means are strictly forbidden. Copies of the game are still available at most major online retailers. Please visit Play Now for a full guide on how to connect to SWG Awakening.

Awakening Operating System Survey

Hi all,

We are running a survey to gain insight into what operating system our players are using on the computers they use to play SWG Awakening with. This survey is a short 1-2 minute survey that will greatly benefit us in understanding our players. We appreciate everyone taking the time to complete it.

The survey can be found on our website at the Operating System Survey page (direct link: https://swgawakening.com/operating-system-survey)

As we work to update the packages our launcher runs on, we will be losing support for Windows 7/8/8.1 with the mainstream launcher release. This will bring us in line with Microsoft's end of support for legacy operating systems. As a result of this, we may need to provide an alternative option for users with legacy Windows operating systems to connect to Awakening's servers. We will develop our plan based on user responses to this survey, though work has already commenced to provide avenues to enable this. See the current version of the Play Now page to see our work so far.

Note: Users with non-Windows operating systems, this does not change anything for you, we still will not be providing support for users on non-Windows operating systems. Though the launcher code is publicly available at the link below, if you would like to try edit and compile a version of the launcher for your OS (macOS/Linux distros).

Server Online - Current Status - 05/07/2023

Hi all,

The server is back online after an issue with city regions was fixed. The server should be more stable going forward when rebooting.

Here is an update on what's currently happening with the server. Following a server deadlock at approximately 9:30pm EDT on May 6th, we attempted to reboot the server. As yet we have been unable to bring it online. We have identified that the server is deadlocking during its bootup sequence. As time permits we are working to resolve the issue so that we can get the server to come online successfully. We appreciate your patience at this time! We will update you as we have more to share.

Kind regards,

Star Wars Day 2023

Woohoo May 4th is here!

We will be conducting a server restart to enable the Awakening event system from a server restart on Friday the 5th of May through until the following Friday (restart times TBA, a minimum of 30 minute warning will be provided prior to bringing the server down). We will be giving players a chance to get two random event paintings from the May 4th 2017 through to the May 4th 2022 collection. These will be able to be redeemed once per account (put in the inventory of the first character to login after restart). The commemorative badge for May 4th 2023 will be awarded to each character that is logged in during the event. Like usual there will also be boosted XP during the event, this will be equal to three (3) times the base server XP rate, keeping in mind we are currently in two (2) times boosted XP mode at the moment.

There may be additional spontaneous/semi-spontaneous events being held throughout the week. The occurence of these is solely based on the availability of our volunteer Event Coordination team members.


To summarise everything that’s guaranteed to be happening during the week:
  • Two random May 4th event paintings from 2017-2022 per account (put in the inventory of the first character to login)

  • A May 4th 2023 event badge per character logged in

  • Increased XP rate (3x the base rate)

All of these will be available from Friday the 5th of May’s ad hoc reset, to the following Friday's ad hoc reset.

Thank you all for playing SWG with us on Awakening. We hope you enjoy!

The staff team wishes you a happy Star Wars Day, May the 4th be with you all!
