Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures Public Beta Online, Accepting Entries
If you find that your current crop of free-to-play MMOs is missing a distinctive Star Wars flair, we have good news. The previously announced massively multiplayer online title Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures has kicked off a public beta and is accepting entries right now.
Based in the Clone Wars universe (go figure), Adventures is a free-to-play MMO developed by Sony Online Entertainment; however, players can choose to pay $5.99 per month in order to gain access to a variety of unnamed bonuses. The final version of the game will launch on September 15 alongside a 90-day pass at retail, which includes "500 Station Cash, the ability to unlock the Togruta playable character, a Yoda monitor topper, and more."

The beta allows gamers to join the epic battle of good versus evil as a male or female human, clone trooper or Twi'lek. Although some fans will stampede toward the game as something to cure their itch for that other Star Wars MMO, Clone Wars Adventures is aimed at a younger audience.
According to the announcement press release, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is "focused on creating a fun and safe online environment for kids and families." Gameplay is broken up into "minigames, dynamic activities [and] lively social events." Not exactly the epic battle you're anticipating, although you can "fight" alongside characters like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Ahsoka Tano. So, there's that.
