EA's blog recently announced that BioWare will be hosting launch events for Star Wars: The Old Republic at four locations in the U.S. and Europe: New York City, Austin (Texas), London, and Paris. Attendees will receive a limited edition lithograph (while supplies last), and the opportunity to win copies of the game, and related merchandise, as well as the opportunity to meet members of the BioWare staff (and get stuff autographed). I've added entries about them on our event calendar listings on the sidebar.
Note that the European launch events happen on Wednesday, December 14, whereas the U.S. launch events take place on Monday, December 19:
