Hot on the heels of Diablo III being pushed into early next year (surely a coincidence), I got an email this morning from EA announcing the launch date of Star Wars: The Old Republic. (Those in the EU got an email showing a launch two days later.)
Of course, with a pre-order, you might get to play earlier than that date. Maybe. The official pre-order FAQ isn’t solid on that point.
Pre-ordering also ensures that you may be granted Early Game Access before the Game’s official release. More information on Early Game Access will be provided at a later time.
The emphasis above is mine. I am not sure how you can ensure something that “may” happen. We shall see. Begun early access debate has.
And that still means we have a good three months to go before launch. What will we do until then?
