About a month ago it was revealed through a FAQ that the SWTOR early access would begin on December 15th, however today after BioWare announced that pre-loading was available, the FAQ has been updated with a date of December 13th, two days earlier!

Just got my Email confirming this sweet! thumb.gif

Ugh I wish my Pre-order counted towards early access. Stupid Gamestop...

Yes my parents forced me to buy it there because they didn't trust Origin to pre order because it's not Steam or another website that they actually know about lol.

On your receipt from gamestop it should have printed out a pre order key. Enter that in your origin account and it grants you access.

edit:
If you didn't get a key, take your receipt back to the store and they can print you one.

I've gotten so many replies on the old republic forums but not one containing this. Let me try this. I was told I preordered late even though I preordered in early October..

I emailed support and they told me that they stopped giving out the early access codes because they "ran out".

I preordered both mine and my wife's copy from Gamestop and I got a key on my receipt but she didn't. I just went back to the store and had them print me out one for her, and we're both listed as having early access on our accounts.

Did a couple beta weekends with this game, and it really disappointed me. No real innovation in the game, and if it wasn't called "Star Wars" it would be just another free to play. Kind of bummed me out cause i was looking forward to some decent mmo play this winter.

I may go back whenever I have free time this weekend. What would the pre-order code be called on the recepit? Just Pre-order code? And where do I go on Origin to add it?

Uhh, no. Just because they don't trust certain websites doesn't mean they "suck". They drive me around anywhere I need to go, they don't mind that I sit on my computer whenever I'm on not at school or sports, they help me get work and make money at the family business and they feed and clothe me. Now, I don't see how they "suck". They even bought a house in an upper middle class neighborhood when my mother was pregnant with me just because they wanted their child to have a good education. Now, in all honesty just because they wouldn't let me pre-order a stupid video game online doesn't mean they suck lol.

Also, my little brother happened to be preordering Modern Copyware 3 at the same time, so he was going there anyway, so they just told me to pre-order there. I don't like gamestop and their practices, but I'll put up with it if my parents don't want me to be preordering anywhere else.
