Does this announcement mean I can play Star Wars: The Old Republic this weekend (November 11th to 13th)?No it does not, unless you have a previous testing invite – either to this weekend (November 11th to 13th) or to general Game Testing (ongoing). The Beta Testing Weekend we are referring to will happen within the next few weeks.
When will the Beta Testing Weekend start?
It will happen in the next few weeks. We’ll have an announcement on the exact timing closer to the weekend’s start.
Will this be the final Beta Testing Weekend?
Currently, we expect it to be.
Will I be able to download the game client in advance of the weekend?
Yes, we will be sending out invites to download the game client in advance of the upcoming weekend.
I logged in to www.swtor.com/tester and there is no download link. Am I still invited to testing?
Yes. The page will change when you are able to download the game client, which will happen closer to the upcoming weekend’s start.
I have previously tested Star Wars: The Old Republic. Will I get invited to the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend?
Yes, you will. Every person that is signed up and opted in for Game Testing before November 11th will be invited to the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend.
I have previously tested Star Wars: The Old Republic and already have the game client. Will I need to re-download the client for the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend?
Yes. The game client has changed substantially since earlier Game Testing phases, and you’ll need to re-download it for the upcoming Testing Weekend. If you have been invited to the 11-13th of November Beta Testing Weekend, you will need to patch the game client for the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend.
Will I need to re-download the game client after the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend, or can I use it during Early Game Access?
You may have to re-download the game client. This will be confirmed after the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend.
What if I do not live in a launch country for Star Wars: The Old Republic?
As long as you are signed up and opted in for testing, you will be invited to test in the upcoming Beta Testing Weekend.
What if I have not signed up, or opted in for testing by November 11th?
We are partnering with a number of games media sites worldwide to give away Beta Test Weekend Codes. They are listed in this article. If you receive a code from any of these sites, you will need to sign up on StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com to redeem that code. Further instructions are listed in the post directly below this one.
Should I try and get a key from a media partner, just in case?
If you were already signed up for testing before November 11th, you do not need an additional key. By taking a key, you’ll deny someone else a chance to test the game – so please do not apply for a key you will not need!
If you have further questions, please ask them in this thread and we’ll try to answer them.
