Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures logs one million players during week one
Sony Online Entertainment and LucasArts announced today Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures has registered one million users just one week after the free-to-play MMO’s launch on September 15.
This massive number is similar to the popularity of SOE’s other F2P MMO, Free Realms, which as of June this year had 12 million registered users.
“We are thrilled to have hit the one million player mark in Clone Wars Adventures so quickly and look forward to seeing the player community continue to grow,” said John Smedley, president of SOE.
“Combining the technology, design infrastructure and lessons learned from Free Realms with the amazing Clone Wars brand, we knew we could make a great game, and we’re happy to see that fans of all ages are enjoying the content as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
To mark this milestone, SOE and LucasArts are rewarding all current players with a limited edition, in-game Golden Mouse Droid pet and the ability to participate in the game’s first ever in-game virtual party.
The part is the first in a series of weekly live events, and starts today Friday, with a special gathering for Jedi Members being held in the game’s Officers’ Club.
