The NDA Has Been Lifted!

Moments ago, BioWare Co-founder Dr. Greg Zeschuk announced that the NDA for Star Wars: The Old Republic has been lifted:

Folks,

As of now, the non disclosure portion of our Game Testing Agreement is officially lifted. While all players must still accept the Game Testing Agreement, from this point on testers may now freely talk about their experiences this past weekend in the game, as well as post screenshots and gameplay videos of their testing experiences. We encourage you to come join us on the officialStar Wars™: The Old Republic™ Forums to share your experiences!

The Star Wars: The Old Republic community site will have a copy of this message on the forums and it will also appear in the Patcher. Players may not talk about nor reprint posts from our testing forums as they are still fully covered by the confidentiality portions of our Game Testing Agreement. And all players who want to participate in the upcoming Beta Test Weekends still have to accept all terms of the Game Testing Agreement. So, other than that, free feel to talk about and share your experiences inStar Wars: The Old Republic.

My thanks go out to everyone who has beta tested and continues to beta test the game. It has been with your help and feedback that Star Wars: The Old Republic is where it is today. We really appreciate your efforts.

May the Force be with you!

Greg Zeschuk
VP, Electronic Arts, BioWare Austin, General Manager

What does this mean for us, you and everyone? It means that all testers can begin talking about and sharing their experiences with anyone and of course that means all of the testers in next weekend’s open beta will be able to talk about it as well!

We’ll be hosting a live Q&A tonight in the Ask A Jedi Cantina. We were originally just going to be talking about the Fan Sire Summit, but for now, all bets are off! Stop on by, you can find the info on how to join us here.


  1. The game is just outstanding ! 9/10
    The minus 1 is just because of latency coming from BW servers.
    (i’m not talking about the beta weekend test)

  2. People who already planed to put their life on hold for this game will be disappointed it’s great but IMO it doesn’t have the WoW factor, I’ll play and I will keep my CE but it will be easier to moderate my play time.

    My personal theory is that you can only have it once in your life and I already had mine.

    Bottom line game is great but I think people with to high hopes for this game will become haters and that’s not good for the community of the game.

  3. The next Nerfherder’s Guide to the Galaxy is going to be quite a bit different. I played through Hutta last weekend, so this will definitely be a more informed bit o’ writing…

    :)
