Is there a closed beta for Star Wars: The Old Republic
? If the general community discussion is to be believed, yes.
A thread on the official SWTOR forums
began this morning, claiming that players have received invitations for a June 25 - 27 closed beta. A post added shortly afterward made further clarification that only 100-200 invitations are going out. Within seven hours the thread reached nearly 200 pages.
So is it for real? On one hand, we don't have a clear confirmation of the fact. On the other hand, as our friends at Darth Hater pointed out
, the thread was not locked, something that is usually SOP in these cases. In addition, Sean Dahlberg certainly isn't denying it
We'll keep our eyes open for any further information!
