Sith or Republic? Choose your side

Star Wars: The Old Republic early game access launched at midday today in the UK for customers who pre-ordered the title.


Players will gain access to the title in waves, with early game access designed to help manage server volumes and ensure a smooth launch day experience when the highly anticipated MMORPG officially releases on December 20.

GAME and Gamestation are the exclusive UK stockists of the Star Wars: The Old Republic Collector's Edition.

To participate in early game access, customers who pre-ordered the title can redeem their code here.

BioWare label general manager Ray Muzyka said: "The Old Republic blends the best of breed features from the MMO space and adds significant innovations, resulting in an emotionally engaging online experience where you have a clear, meaningful purpose.

"Our beta testers have told us we have truly captured the magic of the Star Wars universe and changed what they expect from an MMO. The Old Republic team is incredibly excited, honoured and humbled to provide early access to our pre-order customers today. This is just the beginning of a grand adventure together."
