Around 8am, Saturday, the 12th, Bioware will be holding a press only preview of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Our PAX East coverage team will be streaming the preview live here on this post from 8am to 10am. After the event, they will post a HD quality recording of the preview ASAP.
Update: The event is in 30mins. (9am EST) We’ll start streaming once we can.
Update (9:03 am): We are in. Going live ASAP.
Update (9:09 am): Might be a few minutes more. Beng herded like cattle. Going to go live ASAP.
Update (9:31 am): FRACK. Rep just told us the preview is at 10am. Why did someone tell us 8 then 9? GRRRR.
Update (9:52 am): (Overheard while in line with the Bioware reps.) Release date TENTATIVE for Q4 of this year! HUZZAH!
Update (10:13am): And we are live!
As you can tell…. the live UStream Mobile feed isn’t the best quality. I’ve decided to stop the stream and let the team record it in HD. We’ll have a recording up tonight. Again, sorry for the hype.
Apologies to the SW:TOR community. We broke the news thinking this was credible information from reps that were in line with us. Just like any regular fan, we immediately got excited when we overheard the release date being tentative for Q4 of this year and wanted to share this news with everyone. We still believe in this information and are doing our best to get a confirmation on this. (We aren’t hurting for hits.)
