    The trailer says absolutely nothing about the game, but bloody hell is it impressive.

    ...and it does the job. I'm giddy with excitement over a product I know virtually nothing about and will probably be disappointed by (or so I keep telling myself).

    Lawdy i want this game, looking like it's got all the stuff that was actually good about SWG and adding all the bioware goodness. *crosses everything*

    Myself and a bunch of friends have this on pre-order and the basic guild formed on the website. Really looking forward to it going live.

    I've gone from no interest at all to really pretty interested now, don't have a PC capable of the beta at the moment but it will be nice to know if it's any good.

    There are quite a few previews floating out and about on teh intarwebs by now, they should allow you to fairly accurately gauge the game.

    I hate to say this but it absolutely looks like WoW with a Star Wars skin; the core mechanics look identical. One might argue that's due to it being another hotkey-based MMO which is true to some extent but then I'd argue we really ought to be moving beyond that - IMO very dated - type of game mechanic anyhow.

    And while the previews - focused mainly on the first few levels/areas of the game - do make it seem very story-driven, player-centered and even somewhat reminiscent of KotOR I can't shake the feeling it'll turn into the same tedious "LFG/Need healar" grindtastic nonsense a few hours in (no, I really don't like the default MMO mould)

    But don't take my word for it, just watch a couiple of the many videos already available :)

    I must admit I was looking forward to it as well but as JoeBlade says everything I've seen of it just seems to be something we've all seen before but with a Star Wars theme.

    The Gamescom demonstration made me rather glad I hadn't pre-ordered.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Do you have to pre-order the game to get access to the beta?

    Same. The few months after it was first announced you won't have found a bigger fanboy than me. KOTOR is one of my fave games of all time. I was so hyped that they were going to drag MMOs into the next gen and create a true story driven experience that was going to do away with crap like the holy trinity and raids that served as loot conveyor belts. I even liked the chintzy look of the thing when the first shots came out.

    I quit WoW a couple of years ago because I realised that for months, I had been playing it and really not liking it, just doing it out of habit. Everything I have seen about how this actually plays, and their plans for raiding post level cap makes me feel like I have already completed this game and stopped playing it.

    SWTOR represents everything I hate abotu Bioware now. The ME trilogy, the DA trilogy and SWTOR really drive home the EA-isation of the studio and they are the absolute pinnacle of everything I hate about modern gaming. Their games review well because they are a safe series of set pieces made toa demographic. SWTOR, just like Bioware, are all polish and no boots.

    Beta invites have nothing to do with pre-orders.
