Although the prequel movies have seemingly trashed the Star Wars franchise, many fans have placed all their hopes with BioWare and its upcoming MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic to restore balance back to the once beloved universe.

Unfortunately, evil is afoot, possible agents of the Sith who are determined to bring chaos to those who faithfully serve as fans of the upcoming game, playing on their desire to catch an early hands-on glimpse before the retail release. After all, temptation can lead one down the Dark path.

BioWare senior community coordinator Allison Berryman explains. "It has come to our attention that there are multiple individuals and sites claiming to sell testing accounts, 'beta keys,' or other offers of access to our Game Testing Program," she explains. "All of these offers are false. BioWare is not issuing invites to Game Testing via any method other than those we outline here on SWTOR.com."

That is the first time we have heard anything other than sometime in 2011.
