Play Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ and explore an age thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader when war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy. Team up with other players to battle enemies in dynamic Star Wars™ combat and overcome incredible challenges.
The order in which you redeem your Pre-order Code is the order in which you will gain Early Game Access before the game’s official release. So don’t wait and pre-order now!
So by pre-ordering you get early access, plus a crystal to change the colour of a light saber. The characters made on the early access are NOT deleted at the end of early access, and continue through to the live game.
If you fancy splashing some cash on the Collector's Edition, you get unique in game stuff, a book, a statue and a music CD, among other things.
Other things come to light are their minimum specs:
