Several weeks ago we told you about BioWare's
plans to stage a public demo
of its Star Wars The Old Republic
MMORPG across the street from this month's San Diego Comic Con
. Today, MMORPG.com
has picked up on the news from the official forums, pointing out that the demos will feature the game's first two flashpoints.
Interested players will get to work their way through the Black Talon and Esseles instances beginning Thursday, July 21st at 7:00 p.m. Pacific and running through Saturday, July 23rd. The sessions will last approximately one hour and are
open to the general public
. You'll want to get there early, though, as spots are limited and interest in BioWare's
sci-fi opus is ramping up in anticipation of a possible 2011 release.
[Update: Apparently, this isn't open to the public. There's a lottery to get in. Good luck with that!]
