With just a little over a month until release, Bioware is sending out invites for a weekend beta test - apparently a lot, too!
If you've registered with the Star Wars: The Old Republic site and said you want to be a beta tester, now would be a great time to check your inbox. Bioware has been sending out beta invites over the last few days that will be good this weekend, November 11-13. I got one, and a friend of mine also got one. What are the odds if it's not a massive test? It's mostly likely a stress test to see how the servers handle a higher load. The game will be running off the East Coast servers and will only be available to US citizens. (I'm not sure if you have to live in the Eastern Standard Time zone to qualify...if you've received an invite and you're in another time zone, let me know.)
