Nestled in the lovely press release regarding the Limited Edtions and pre-orders for Star Wars: The Old Republic, was news that beta test weekends will start in September. That’s good news for those of us you who have yet to be admitted into the beta club.

These “weekend play sessions” will be open to “selected players worldwide.”

“We are targeting Star Wars: The Old Republic to be one of the biggest launches of holiday 2011,” said BioWare’s Ray Muzyka. “We are taking all of the necessary steps to make sure The Old Republic has a thriving community built on a stable online foundation from day one, including limiting supply at launch to ensure that players easily transition into the servers. So whether you’re waiting to join the Empire or the Republic, pre-order now to ensure you can enter the galaxy at launch!”

Holiday 2011, huh?
