History's first closed early game access.


Recommended Posts

From the 13th of december we will start to invite a lucky few customers to jump start the game ahead of others.

We do however guarantie that everyone that pay ahead of time will get at least a few hours of gametime before the 20th depending on their client download speed is sufficient to download the client fast enough.



Preorder the game today and recive the possibility to download the client ahead of time to avoid have to use the supplied disc that would require heavy patching at launch day.




How it should have been.

Here's more of what is going on..


The second thing to realize is scale. We invited more people to play Star Wars: The Old Republic today than many other MMO launches manage in their entire head-start process. As I mentioned earlier today, when we opened pre-orders we had a huge spike in numbers - far more than most MMOs capture at launch. That was the initial rush. After that, our pre-orders settled down.


What this means is that tomorrow, you'll effectively start to see the pre-order timeline expand. You'll see people who have pre-ordered later than July getting invites. The day after that, more people will be invited. We're actually planning to invite more tomorrow than today, and invite the same number again on Thursday - at which point we'll be into the original 'five days of Early Game Access'.


So there should be lees fear and gossip about, but maybe the trolls live on the rage, fear, hate, etc..
