This gives would be scoundrels and heroes alike a chance to delve into the world of SWTOR. While there is no release date as of yet they are targeting it to be released in 2011 and hopes to have it be one of the bigger games this holiday season. While not everyone will be selected to be part of the SWTOR Beta Test weekends still go sign up if you’re interested. If you meet the requirements and are selected you get to experience it before the rest of us. To be elligable you must be a registered member of the Star Wars: The Old Republic community and be 18 years of age or older.

Doesn’t seem like the requirements are all that stiff.

Just look at what you get in return: You get to spend some time (albeit briefly) in an MMO that some of us have been anxiously awaiting for quite some time now. You get a sneak peak at the combat, story, missions, and worlds that have taken a while for BioWare to craft for SWTOR.

While there are those out there who will say “blah blah blah, SWTOR, blah blah, Beta Test, who cares” this is intended for those who’s desire for this have been sharpened to a point so fine it could cut the armor off of a Storm Trooper without even breaking a sweat.

So get out there, sign up, and if you are selected I expect to see you tweeting me all the OMGs you can.
