The Old Republic Early Access Details; Trailer; Novel Preview

The official website for Star Wars: The Old Republic now offers details on early access being offered to those who pre-order BioWare's sci-fi MMORPG. Additionally, the site also now hosts a new trailer showing Imperial Agent character progression with the following description: "Through stealth, cunning, guile and their discretionary use of violence, the Imperial Agent is tasked with performing the most sensitive and secretive assignments for the Sith Empire." Finally there is also a preview of Revan, a novel to be released on November 15th that "answers surrounding the mystery of what became of the redeemed Jedi Revan after the events of the first Knights of the Old Republic." The preview consists of chapters three and eleven, which was probably Jar-Jar's idea. Back to the first element of this story, here are the details on early access:

Early Game Access is staggered over five days to ensure a quality experience for players at launch. Staggering access aids server stability and a gradual increase in player population through the game. Early Game Access will be granted according to when your Pre-Order Code is redeemed at the Code Redemption Center. If you have not yet pre-ordered Star Wars: The Old Republic, there’s still time! Visit our Pre-Order page for more information and watch the Collector’s Edition Unboxing video for a peek inside this highly coveted edition of the game.

That's why I highly doubt this project will last more than a couple years. Sure you can play each class and see its story but without compelling gameplay it won't hold the interest of most of its players. Especially those who have come from MMOs that have highly polished gameplay like WoW, Rift, or the upcoming GW2.

Care to put any money on that? Even SWG lasted longer than two years, and it didn't have anywhere near the pre-launch fanbase of SWTOR.

Most of the beta testers I know can't wait for the launch, and most of them are ex-WoW players. I frankly don't see the "stiffness" some people complain about when I watch SWTOR pvp game-action videos. When I think "stiff," I think of Warhammer Online.
