Over 2 Million Volunteer for Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta

Posted Tue, Dec 06, 2011 by Martuk

Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) is set to launch on December 20th and BioWare has plenty of momentum heading in. According to a statement from EA CFO Eric Brown at the annual Global Media and Communications Conference, SWTOR attracted over 2 million beta volunteers for the upcoming MMORPG. Brown also noted that over 725,000 players took part in the Thanksgiving weekend beta and that at its concurrent peak; SWTOR had over 250,000 players playing at the same time.

SWTOR has already broken EA’s highest pre-order record and drawn fire from Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick. Despite that, SWTOR marches forward and is set to kick off its staggered Early Access on December 15th.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.

The high-fantasy setting isn't the only thing that would make Game of Thrones a fantastic story-based MMO.

A horribly-abused system from gaming's past is all but eradicated from current titles.
