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.
