Have question you must?
Read FAQ's you will!
Does this announcement mean I can play Star Wars: The Old Republic this weekend?
No it does not, unless you have a previous testing invite - either to this weekend or to general Game Testing. The Beta Testing Weekend we are referring to will happen in the next few weeks.
When will the Beta Testing Weekend start?
It will happen in the next few weeks. We'll have an announcement on the exact timing closer to the weekend's start.
Will this be the final Beta Testing Weekend?
Currently, we expect it to be.
Will I be able to download the game client in advance of the weekend?
Yes, we will be sending out invites to download the game client in advance of the weekend.
I have previously tested Star Wars: The Old Republic. Will I get invited to the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend?
Yes, you will. Every person that is signed up and opted in for Game Testing before November 11th will be invited to this Beta Testing Weekend.
What if I do not live in a launch country for Star Wars: The Old Republic?
As long as you are signed up and opted in for testing, you will be invited to test.
What if I have not signed up, or opted in for testing by November 11th?
We are partnering with a number of games media sites worldwide to give away Beta Test Weekend Codes. They are listed in this article. If you receive a code from any of these sites, you will need to sign up on StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com to redeem that code. Further instructions are listed in the post directly below this one.
Should I try and get a key from a media partner, just in case?
If you were already signed up for testing before November 11th, you do not need an additional key. By taking a key, you'll deny someone else a chance to test the game - so please do not apply for a key you will not need!
If you have further questions, please ask them in this thread and we'll try to answer them.
