Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Weekends Start September 2nd

After hinting at a beta date back in July, BioWare announced at PAX the official start date of the Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Weekends. Starting this Friday, September 2nd, thousands of lucky fans will get to experience the Star Wars universe like never before.

A fresh batch of registration codes will be delivered soon for the invite-only beta, and if you haven't signed for a chance to enter the beta, there's still time (at the time of this post). Head to the Star Wars: The Old Republic tester site and enter your information. Anyone can sign up, but unfortunately only a select few will get a code.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is the new groundbreaking MMORPG from BioWare that combines their expertise in role-playing games with the expansive Star Wars universe. Create your own character from a wealth of customizable options, gather companions to form a crew, group up with like-minded players to enter intense missions, and prepare to do battle for the fate of the galaxy. Pre-order your copy on Origin today to get early game access and an in-game Color Stone.
