Big news from the Devs. Some of us (people who pre-ordered SWTOR) will be getting into the game on the 13th of December instead of the previously planned date of 15th of December. I think my heart just started beating a bit faster with excitement! It's like Christmas is early!!
The rub is that it's a case of first in best dressed - those that re-ordered first will get access first. Here's the official announcement ...
To ensure that players can get into the game as quickly as possible when their Early Game Access begins, we are now allowing everyone who has redeemed a Pre-Order Code at our Code Redemption Center to pre-load the game to their computer.
In order to download the game client before Early Game Access begins, you need have already logged into your account and redeemed your Pre-Order Code. Once you have done this, you can download the game client by clicking on “My Account” in the upper-right of the window and then click “Pre-Order.” On your Pre-Order page, click the large button that says “Download Game Client” to begin download of the game!
