Still not in beta yet? Are you itching to get your chance to try SWTOR for yourself before launch? You are in luck because we found a great little piece of info today straight from the source himself, Mr. Stephen Reid.

Stephen Reid tweets:

“Everyone who signed up for #SWTOR testing (yes – everyone), including those redeeming keys from our partners, will get invited next week.”

This means everyone! Basically this is now going to be an open beta situation where anyone who is interested in getting to play, will get to play. It’s beneficial for them to do it for a variety of reasons.

For one, they get to test the servers and make sure they have stability for the loads of people who are going to want to play. Another benefit is that this will give more people the chance to be sure they want to fork out the cash for the game, increasing pre-orders before December even gets here.

They will greatly increase the interest in the game and continue the hype that has been ongoing for years now but is really building strong here at the end of 2011 as we grow closer to the launch date. So get ready, check your emails and tell your friends because if you still have not had a chance to play, your time is coming!
