Bioware has announced that beta testing will start again this weekend on October 6 and run until October 10 for Star Wars: The Old Republic. The firm is increasing the invite numbers from the first weekend, meaning more of you will get to play. Invites are being sent as we speak, and if you are shunned this weekend by the firm, don’t fret – more testing weekends will occur the game launches in December. If for some reason you miss the mail or are just unsure if you have been invited or not, log in to the official SWTOR website’s tester page. If you have been invited, the client will be available to download. Thanks, Mike.

If you were planning on playing around in the SWTOR beta this weekend, you should probably make alternate plans, like playing another game or participating in underwater sock darning. Whatever it is you crazy kids do these days.

“We’re driving towards a date, but we’re not announcing a date yet because [we] want to make sure that these services can last a decade. It is definitely tied to the beta test feedback that’s ongoing and so far, so good. You’ve got to have a great launch and as more and more user feedback comes in we make those polishing decisions on what we’re going to get right and nail. The other thing is, the technology of standing these things up and then getting all the server farms to work together, talk to one another, store character records… it’s extraordinarily complex and so we want a very stable experience. We don’t want to happen to us what happened to WoW and a couple of other services where in the first week there were queues trying to get on to the servers, the entire service crashed. So we need to nail and make sure that it’s up 24/7 and it’s high quality. We’re totally focused on quality, so whatever the beta test tells us is what will be the determining variable on when we will hit.” – EA labels boss Frank Gibeau to CVG.
