The Force is with SWTOR testing


Many rumors have been floating around regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic's beta testing status. What's being tested, exactly? Who's conducting the testing? This week, another one of those rumors has been let out of the proverbial bag. The rumor we've received from several tipsters says that -- although BioWare is not moving to an open beta -- the team is moving to another phase of testing this week. The deals of what is involved in this week's testing are sketchy at best, but multiple sources have reported to us mentioning they are testing. Providing more info than that would surely break their NDA, and we wouldn't report on that anyway.

Blaine Christine, the Live Producer for SWTOR, is the man in charge of testing, as he told us at PAX. He has his work cut out for him with the number of fans banging at the door to get into testing -- as evident by the number of tweets to @swtor asking to sell or do strange things in return. However, there is only one way to get into game testing: Register at the official website, go click the account button at the top, click the radial button which states, "Yes, I would like to be considered for testing," then follow the instructions on how to allow the site to snag your system information.

We wish you luck getting into any form of testing that BioWare is conducting, and we wish BioWare luck in this current phase. May the Force be with you.
