EA has announced the pre-order options for Star Wars: The Old Republic, which includes a Standard, Digital Deluxe and Collector's Edition of the game.

The UK retailers listed as supplying the pre-order are Game, Play and Amazon, although only Game currently has the title on its site with the standard edition marked at £39.99 and the Collector's Edition priced at £129.99.

The announcement follows a recent leak of information about the basic and Collector's editions by Polish and Spanish online retailers. However, the details about what's included in the editions appear to be accurate.

The limited Collector's Edition will come with a security authentication key, a soundtrack CD, a map of the Old Republic's galaxy, a Sith-lord statue and a 111-page journal of notes and sketches. It will also include an exclusive in-game mouse droid and access to an in-game store.

Meanwhile, the Digital Deluxe Edition, available through Origin, will only come with in-game items, including a flare gun, a training droid, a holographic dancer, a unique vehicle and a HoloCam that will keep visual records of in-game adventures.

All versions of the game will come with 30 days of game time, and pre-ordering will also provide you with early access to the MMO ahead of its launch. An exact release date for the title is still to be announced.
