Electronic Arts has launched "Guild Headquarters" for its upcoming MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic: an online portal that allows future players to create or join guilds prior to the game's launch.
According to the site, "with our three-phased Pre-Launch Guild Program, you have the opportunity to find a group now that suits your play style, or if you prefer to start your own guild, you can reserve your preferred guild name and begin recruiting members to join your cause."
"When the game launches, you will have the opportunity to transfer your guild directly into the game. All guilds that meet certain criteria will be imported into the game."
There's currently no official release date for The Old Republic, although it's loosely scheduled for Q2 this year.
