PAX 2011: Beta Testing Weekends Begin September 2nd

If you’re reading this, there’s a chance you’ll be playing Star Wars: The Old Republic next weekend.

If you haven’t already heard, BioWare today revealed that the Beta Testing Weekends announced back in July are beginning on September 2nd. And in case that didn’t click for you – that’s this coming weekend!

Senior Live Producer Blaine Christine said they’re adding a brand new testing server and inviting a whole new group of people. He mentioned specifically if you don’t get in next weekend “you should be getting in very soon.”

This means that in order to get all of this weekend’s testers downloaded and patched up, they’re likely to begin that process during the week. So keep a close watch on your inbox!

And if for some reason you’re not actually signed up for the Game Testing program yet, waste no time, because you gotta be in it to win it!

Good luck everyone, looks like this thing is real after all!

Senior Live Producer Blaine Christine delivering the good news!

  1. Ahhh yea, i hope i get in.

  2. Would be nice to get an invite for sure. I wonder if I am out of town for an invite if I can still download and play. Hmmm.

  3. I might have a mental breakdown if I get passed up again for this

  4. I travel for my work, and from now on I am having to take 2 laptops with me each trip just incase I get the invite.

    So anyone who has tested or is knows how it works… Check like our e-mail inbox? Or Like our Tor Inbox? How does testing work? Are we going to actually get to start from scratch? If so do we loose that Character at Launch? Can we just test PVP if we want to wait on the story till it is actually our player? I mean don’t get me wrong I have been dying to play this game and Can’t wait to get my hands on it! However, I don’t want to go through my story second rate do you know what I mean?


      Keep checking that site because what I’ve heard from other testers is that the email is sometimes delivered late but if you go to the website directly, you will immediately see a “Download Now” link if you’re in.

    • if you’re invited, you’ll get the invite in your email inbox.

      You dont get to keep your beta characters when the game launch and most of the time, you have to start over every weekends.

      I’m playing a class I won’t be playing right away when SWTOR comes out so I don’t spoil the story :)

        Thanks guys for the replies… That is what I thought… That is also what I plan to do I think as far as with the story aspect… What about PVP? Do you just play a class until you get to PVP? Or is there no PVP?

  6. So is it testing or is this part of pre-order package. I ask cause I am confused is this what they talked about with ealy access preoder or is this another round of beta testing.

  7. does anyone know if there is gonna be beta test for LATAM and AUS players?

  8. KANDOSI!! CAN’T WAIT TO PLAY :D soooo excited

  9. Can’t wait for the testing, hope i will get in…

  10. Sweet! Ferb, I know what we’re gonna do today!

  11. Nice, oh I Need a Invite can’t wait any longer *-*

  12. AHHHH I want to test so bad…. i love finding glitches in any game I play… my friends have to “Seeker Proof” thier maps becuase I find any and all possible glitche.
