The official site of Star Wars: The Old Republic let loose with a variety of updates this past week. First up, guilds have moved into Phase 3: Deployment which means now is the time to finalize your guilds. Click here for details in order to make sure your guild is up to speed.
Next up, SWTOR.com provides details in regards to early game access:
"One of the benefits to pre-ordering Star Wars?: The Old Republic? is that you will gain Early Game Access before launch on December 20th. This is a chance to start your epic Star Wars saga early, as you?ll be able to create and play your character ahead of the official live game launch.
Many of you have been wondering how long Early Game Access will last, and we are now happy to announce that depending on when you redeem your Pre-Order Code, you will gain Early Game Access up to five days before the official game launch date.
Early Game Access is staggered over five days to ensure a quality experience for players at launch. Staggering access aids server stability and a gradual increase in player population through the game. Early Game Access will be granted according to when your Pre-Order Code is redeemed at the Code Redemption Center. If you have not yet pre-ordered Star Wars: The Old Republic, there?s still time! Visit our Pre-Order page for more information and watch the Collector?s Edition Unboxing video for a peek inside this highly coveted edition of the game."
Continuing along, the official TOR site has released a new video detailing the character progression of Imperial Agents.
And in case you missed it, SWTOR.com has exclusive previews of the 3rd and 11th chapters of Drew Karpyshyn's upcoming novel, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan. The new book will be available on November 15, 2011.
