A Star Wars: The Old Republic pre-order will let you play the MMO up to five days before launch, BioWare has announced
Early Game Access enables you to create and play your character ahead of TOR’s 20th December launch.
BioWare plans to stagger Early Game Access over the five days to “ensure a quality experience for players at launch”.
“Staggering access aids server stability and a gradual increase in player population through the game,” BioWare said.
Early Game Access will be granted according to when your pre-order code is redeemed at the Code Redemption Center. There is still time to do this.
