Big Beta Weekend Dated and Other Beta News

Published by under Beta,news on Nov. 17. 2011.

Hundreds of thousands of beta keys for Star Wars: The Old Republic have been handed out through various web sites over the past couple of days. It was near impossible to get into the beta just a couple of weeks ago and now everybody seems to be given a chance to preview the game before official release. We now know when this Big Beta Weekend will commence. It was announced over twitter official SWTOR account that they are targeting to start on Friday November 25 and close on Monday November 28. You should expect your invitation emails on/or around Tuesday (these will contain a link to client download).
While we are on the subject of beta, it has been reported that during the previous beta weekend testers spent more than a million hours on the game. I hope they found all the bugs and will make the game launch that much smoother. Great news for all those that tested during that beta weekend is that their characters will be carried over to the upcoming beta testing weekend and they will be able to continue leveling their characters.

While you wait for next week, bask in the glory of this week’s Facebook image featuring Eternity Vault.

    I had the honor of testing last weekend and I must say there were not many bugs to be found. It felt like a launch version. There may be some trouble with the mad rush to log in on Friday night, but once you get passed that little srt back you guys are in for a treat 😉

    Big Beta Test Weekend

    Ok I have seen a huge amount of tweets and posts about people having their beta code, but can not download the files yet.

    Let me see if I can help you. is your first stop. I visit that page and currently it says I am signed up, but it does not give me the RSVP or the ability to download yet.

    The last test you had to click on RSVP then you could download the files by clicking on the install button.

    What may be different this time, is they are e-mailing beta codes. I have been told that you get 1 e-mail saying you are in the beta, then a second later (like it has not gone out yet) giving you the RSVP and the link to download the client.

    If you tested on the last beta, November 11 – 13, then you will have to patch, but now download the entire client. This client was about 20 GB all told.

    The download took me 18 hours to complete, with a couple of restarts.

    If I am not correct on any of this, please correct me. I was just hoping to make things clearer, especially for first time testers.
