I had the opportunity to watch over the shoulder of one of my friends as he Beta Tested this new game over the first couple of weekends in December 2011. I was more than impressed with this the newest of the vast Star Wars Saga Movies and Games collection by LucasFilms Inc. Now that the Game is releasing, and beta testing is over… I can share this with you.
It took some time to download the game… but after all of the security measures were in place for his Beta Test… Jared began to get into the first stage of Star Wars The Old Republic. This Multi-player Game was nothing short of amazing, with impressive graphics, and verbal animation instead of voice boxes and captions. You can easily tweak your mouse sensitivity with a full range of simple +/- settings to get it just right for your own tastes in overall mouse control.
Jared started out as a padiwan in a training sequence that took him into the first 8 levels over the first weekend of Beta-Testing. When he started weekend two… He decided to change character and become a “Jedi Consular” instead.
This change proved to be the most fun for him to play, and for me to watch as he was able to rise to the 15 level and get some amazing powers, weapons, tools, and other resources that offered a wide range of amazing Game Play of Star Wars The Old Republic.
BETA – TWEAKS
After the first weekend the Developers began to tweak the Graphics with a much crisper, and faster flow of overall graphics. Other tweaks came in the form of minor bugs and anomalies that seemed to be barely significant given the amazing depth and overall quality of this amazing new Multi Player Online Game.
The second weekend was no doubt a real treat for all of the beta testers including Jared who signed up for his own copy at release time. With overall amazing success… during the beta testing… Star Wars The Old Republic is sure to become sold out during the first release phase. You can get your own copy Here.
