Star Wars: TOR Pre-Order Details, Get to Play the Game EarlyBy Alex Co | July 21, 2011 | News | No comments | Share
EA has just reveled what fans will be getting when they pre-order Star Wars: The Old Republic, their ambitious BioWare-developed MMO that aims to take a large chunk out of Activision’s World of Warcraft.
One major perk for pre-ordering would be the chance to be able to play the game early. If that’s not a pre-order incentive, I don’t know what is.
Aside from getting early access, pre-orders will also net you a Color Stone to change your weapon effect. The site claims that supplies are limited and that the order in which you pre-order and redeem your code at The Old Republic’s Code Redemption Center is the order in which players are let in during Early Game Access .
There are three versions of the game that fans can pre-order:
There’s the Standard Edition, that will come with a thirty-day free trial of the game, this edition can be bought in retail stores as a physical copy or digitally via EA’s Origin game service.
There’s also a Digital Deluxe Edition, which is sold exclusively on Origin. The full details on the edition’s various extras can be read on EA’s site.
Now we move on the big boy, the Collector’s Edition. This one can only be bought in stores. You know why? Because it comes with a host of goodies for Star Wars fans! This version will also contain everything that the Digital Deluxe Edition comes with, and then some.
- The Journal of Master Gnost-Dural: 111 pages of notes and sketches by the revered Jedi Master from the early years of the Great Hyperspace War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Features never-before-seen artwork and all-new information.
- Darth Malgus statue: The villainous Darth Malgus comes to life with this exclusive 9 in. collectible statue from Gentle Giant studios.
- The Old Republic Galaxy Map: 14 x 20 in. at-a-glance look at the known galaxy.
- Security Authentication Key Fob: Keep your Lightsaber and credits safe with this custom Security Authentication Key Fob for your game account.
- Music of Star Wars: The Old Republic CD: Seventeen orchestral music tracks from The Old Republic.
- Star Wars: The Old Republic game: The full Star Wars: The Old Republic game on DVD-ROM in a collectible metal case.
There’s also a few in-game items exclusive to the Collector’s Edition.
- Exclusive Mouse Droid: A faithful droid to join you on your adventures.
- Exclusive Collector’s Edition Store: Unique in-game store with a dynamic array of items to assist you from your humble beginnings through your journey to become a galactic legend.
Again, those who pre-order and get their code redeemed get to play first. So, if you’re planning on being a Jedi as soon as possible, I suggest you get a move on.
