The Old Republic beta delayed in Europe

European gamers eagerly refreshing their email inboxes in the hope of receiving an invitation to The Old Republic beta will be doing so for a while, after BioWare’s Chris Collins said the studio had decided to wait for a new build of the Star Wars MMOG before sending out the invitations. Collins said that asking European players to download a 27GB client, then a few days later wipe their progress and ask them to download the client all over again was “not an experience we want new testers to be exposed to…You have my word that this batch of invites will happen, it may just mean you have to wait a little longer.”
