TOR Early Access Starts December 13, Pre-Load Now
If you somehow didn’t get into The Old Republic‘s beta-test — which was one of the largest betas in MMO history — and have been dying to play the game, here’s some good news: if you pre-order TOR, you’ll be able to start playing on December 13, a full week before the game hits shelves.
Of course, you’ll have to download a digital copy of the game, which weighs in at over 20 gigs. Depending on your internet connection, that could means hours of waiting. Fortunately, if you’ve pre-ordered, you can pre-load the game as of now, so that when Dec 13 hits, you can start playing the very minute they open the floodgates.
The Old Republic reaches stores on December 20, 2011 in North America and on December 15th in Europe.
