Star Wars The Old Republic Now Available For Pre-Order

Yes, my friends, it is true! BioWare’s Star Wars The Old Republic is finally available for pre-order in both the standard and collector’s edition. Both pre-order versions of the game will give players early access to the game (beta) before its official release, as we have seen done with other MMO’s in the past. Although you can pre-order now, the official release date, as well as the start of the early access period, is yet to be announced. However, if Old Republic continues to follow the current trend of MMO release schedule, then the early access will most likely start a month and a half before the official release.

Aside from early access, pre-ordering the game will also give you some in game item(s), which vary between the standard and collector’s edition, except for a ‘Color Stone’ which will allow you to change the color of your weapon (which I assume means not only lightsabers, but blaster shots as well). According to the email sent out by BioWare this morning, there will be a limited number of per-order copies with early access keys available. So if you are like me and have been following this game almost religiously, then you will most certainly want to get that pre-order in as soon as possible. Personally, my heart was racing with anticipation and excitement until I saw the confirmation page for my online purchase. It was a good morning…
