Well, more like Beta Test Weekends, but when you’re a Jedi-murdering agent of darkness, you tend to gloss over things like proper nomenclature. And if you’re a Jedi you’re probably too busy getting murdered to notice anyway. You might have noticed we’re a bit partial to the Sith here at Geeky Gadgets.
The Beta Weekends are only open to “selected players” for now, but there’s one surefire way to join the ranks of that elite one and a half million strong group. It may seem suspiciously simple, as it involves an email address and not much else, but be on the lookout for spam filters, malfunctioning antiviruses and other stuff that may mean you’ll be waiting to play it until Christmas, when it’s currently slated to release.

One of our readers Jonathan has pointed out that the Beta has been going on for over a year, and that these Beta weekends will be more like mass invite weekends, a sort of try before you buy.
The game is slated for a ‘holiday season’ release, so it should be available before Christmas and it is being tipped to launch around October.
Thanks Jonathan for the tip!
