Those who already playing SWTOR will have a limited-time opportunity to migrate their characters from their current servers to Asia Pacific servers in late April. No specific date has been confirmed at this time. An email to all qualified players will be sent out by early March with more details.

SWTOR was released in the US and Europe in December 2011.
