It is a dark and troubled age over 3,600 years before the rise of Darth Vader, in which the Jedi and Sith prepare to battle and decide the fate of the galaxy. Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia is an unprecedented visual companion to this complex world. Written by a team of writers from the game and created in close collaboration with Lucasfilm, LucasArts and BioWare, the book reveals a wealth of new material on characters, weapons, equipment, vehicles, history and locations...

Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia is an essential purchase for fans of the Star Wars: The Old Republic online game. This monster book (coming in at just under 360 pages) is not only a visually stunning feast for the eyes, but contains tons of information on the universe - a lot you'll already know, but there's way more that you probably aren't aware of.

It's one of those very rare "encyclopedias" that you'll want to read from cover to cover rather than dip in and out of. The text is dense and in depth on its subject matter, which all helps to add a deeper understanding to your gaming experience.

This is certainly a book I'd advise getting hold of.
