Stephen Reid tweeted this announcement today, “All invites for SWTOR Beta Testing Weekend 2 have now been sent.”
He added that further info could be found on the official forums. The announcement has brought about mixed emotions. There are many who are disappointed as they didn’t get an invite to beta testing and this news seems to mean that they will not get their chance- at least not now.
While we are counting down the weeks until the game’s official
release, many people are hoping to get to play that week of beta. With Weekend 2 invites out, many people are flocking to the boards hoping to find new information released by weekend 1 players.
It’s currently unclear whether or not there will be future weekends of beta
play testing available or how many more, if any, players will get to experience the game before December. Reid previously
announced that they would continue to roll out beta weekend opportunities up until launch but he didn’t specifically say
when they would be.
We will just have to sit back, check our emails, read the forums
and hope that we do get an invitation to play.. or spy over our friends’ shoulders while they play.
However, there is a silver lining: in 76 days everyone patiently (or not-so-patiently in some cases) waiting will get to experience the game
in its entirety.
