BioWare developers will be "selecting testers" from the fan community based upon a number of factors, and registrants must be over 18. The beta will involve "several phases".
"We are excited to announce that we are now collecting information for those interested in applying for the opportunity to test Star Wars: The Old Republic. Our goal is to get feedback to help us make the best game that we can," posted BioWare.
You need to sign up for a community account on the official Star Wars The Old Republic website in order to gain access to the beta application. "The testing is limited to members who are 18 years of age or older and requires the acceptance of the Game Testing Agreement included in the TOR community sign-up process."
"Game testing for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be rolled out in several phases over an extended period of time. These test phases will begin with smaller, tightly focused test groups, and later tests will expand," they added. The site is still sluggish at times.
