Still Time To Visit The Old Republic Before Your Friends

ss_zabrak02_full.jpg

With the Beta testing concluded, BioWare is just about ready to release their highly-anticipated MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic on December 20. (December 15th in Europe!) During the weekend of November 25-28th, over 725,000 gamers participated in a Beta test logging over 9 million hours of gameplay. There are over 78,000 guilds that participated in the Pre-Launch Guild Program and 2.4 million players registered at the game's official website.

"Star Wars: The Old Republic is a go for launch on December 20," said Dr. Greg Zeschuk, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of the BioWare label's MMO Business Unit. "We are extremely humbled by the surge of players who have joined us on this journey and participated in the Beta Weekend. Their participation has given us the opportunity to stress test the game and allowed us to tune the experience, ensuring that we deliver the smoothest possible MMO launch later this month."

Bioware also revealed today that Early Game Access for those who pre-ordered Star Wars: The Old Republic will begin on December 13 at 6am CST, giving those eager enough a week's head start over their buddies. All you have to do is pre-order the game and then visit this link to redeem your code. There are reportedly still limited pre-orders still available at participating retailers and at Origin.com. So don't delay!

Not touching it untill they've added same-sex romance to it.
And frankly, quite possibly not even then.
After the initial hoopla over same-sex relationships in Star Wars and then the whole "we'll get to you at some point in the future" BS, I'm a bit burned on them and their game.

So... Nexus... I guess you'll instead play all those other tons of MMOs with same-sex relationships?

Anyway, I was in the beta and had a lot of fun... today I noticed I first registered on their website in 2008, haha.

It's worth noting though that entry in to the early access is based on when you preordered. Those who preordered earliest will begin on the 13 at 6 am CST, and so on from there. Users will receive emails based on when they preordered confirming their start time.

So you can't just go and preorder now and expect to get in to the early access at 6am CST. They will email you your time. Luckily I popped my preorder code in the second they let you haha.

Yeah, nice try there.
What I will be doing is playing all those other MMORPGs that don't make a special mention of relationships with followers and don't bother to include a same-sex option.

I don't need there to be relationships in an MMORPG, but if you're going to put them in a game where you basically build your entire character from scratch, have the decency to include a same-sex option.
I'm not paying to have less content that a straight gamer.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
