Friday Update - Beta For All


This is the the update everyone has been hoping for. This Friday every follower of TOR has will have had an e-mail saying they will be getting a weekend beta test in the next few weeks.

Anyone that has signed up for beta testing before 11/11/2011 will at some point be getting some much needed hands on game time.
The main object is to stress test the server and give the many followers of the game a quick joy-ride.

Those that register after 11/11 are still eligible to test TOR by gaining beta keys that have been given out to some of the media site.

You can find all the details and the site giving out code here.

Update - Ensure Your Account Security

As we prepare to launch Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, we want to ensure that your account and personal information are as secure as possible. To that end, we have begun implementing new security features within that are designed to protect you. This process includes a refresh of our password security requirements. To make sure that all accounts comply with our new security measures, members of the Star Wars: The Old Republic community who created accounts on on or before October 21st, 2011 will be required to reset their password in order to meet with these new standards. Those members who created an account after October 21st, 2011 will not receive an email and do not need to update their passwords.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sending out emails to everyone who created an account on or before October 21st, 2011 to notify them that their password must be reset. You do not need to take any action prior to receiving an email. 

Friday Update Triple Blast

This Friday we see 3 updates in on shot.

First up is the long awaited Imperial Agent character progression video.

The operative looks like the rouge assassin using stealth, stuns and plenty of DOT's to get close and personal with there enemy's.
The sniper on the other has is just that a sniper mixed with the ability's you may find on an archer in other mmo's. 

Both these types of game-play I find highly enjoyable. They normally take a little longer to get used to, but once you master these classes you are a force to be reckoned with.

Early Game Access Details Revealed

The time set aside for early access will be up to 5 days a subject that has had a lot of speculation from the time the pre-orders were announced. 
And no sooner what this reveal up that the new speculation was when the game would be ready to download. Well at least the forums are consistent you can find the full update here
