Star Wars MMO gets a million users

Clone Wars Adventures off to a flyer.

Sony Online Entertainment's free-to-play Star Wars MMO, Clone Wars Adventures, has secured an impressive one million subscribers in its first week.

The game, based on the popular Cartoon Network animated series, went live on 15th September.

Sony marked the sales milestone by gifting every user a limited edition Golden Mouse Droid pet. There will also be a celebratory community party hosted on 24th September starting at 10.00am GMT.

For those unaccustomed to its family-friendly ways, Clone Wars Adventures allows users to indulge in various Star Wars-themed mini-games, including starfighter combat, speeder bike racing and droid programming puzzles. The launch trailer provides a few more details.

Those who prefer a little more RPG meat on their MMO bones might like to hold out for BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic, due on PC early next year.
