Those who pre-ordered Star Wars: The Old Republic could get up to five days of early access to the MMO, depending on when they pre-ordered.

According to an FAQ on the official site, this means some of you will be able to start slaughtering Jedi on December 15.

“Early Game Access is staggered over five days to ensure a quality experience for players at launch,” read a statement on the site. “Staggering access aids server stability and a gradual increase in player population through the game.”

So, in other words, depending on when you pre-ordered the game, you could only get early access for up to a day before the floodgates open.

SWTOR is out December 20.
