In September 2009, a year after the game was, BioWare began for Star Wars: The Old Republic's closed beta. Almost a year later, they have finally started the beta testing!
The developer is letting the first wave of volunteer testers get their hands on the game.
Here's what BioWare had to say regarding Beta starting today.
Game Testing for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is underway! Those selected to test will gain access to the game and be able to provide valuable feedback to help us tune particular areas of gameplay and begin the process of balancing and tweaking our content.
Game Testing is an on-going process being rolled out in several phases. These phases began with smaller, more focused tests with community members from North America, and later will expand to other territories. Users selected for the test program will be notified via email with more information on accessing the Game Testing Portal. If you’ve not been chosen yet, you may be selected in the next wave!
Ok so for those of you that don't know I have been waiting for this Beta since well 2009. I am a avid gamer and in fact I recently installed KOTOR 1 & 2 (Knights of the Old Republic) on my computer and rented Star Wars: Force Unleashed for my 360. It's been about a year since I gave up my World of Warcraft addiction so it's about time for another!
I am a huge fan of BioWare. They have made some great games that I enjoy such as Dragon Age, Mass Effect 1 and 2, Neverwinter Nights, Jade Empire, all the Baldur's Gates and of course KOTOR 1 and 2. I can't wait to see this new game in action.
Here's a trailer for the game.
