Senior online community manager Stephen Reid had a few words for the Australian/NZ gamers recently telling us we can indeed play if we import from other countries!! this is great news for us if we don’t wanna get spoilers for months on end before its officially launched here.
“- There are no plans to ‘region lock’ or ‘IP block’ players from the game. You may experience some latency issues if you’re not playing in a launch territory.
– Anyone who pre-orders The Old Republic and redeems their pre-order code will be eligible for Early Game Access.
– Those eligible for Early Game Access will be able to download the game client before it starts.
– There will be a period after launch day in which those who have pre-ordered will be able to continue playing before entering their Game Code. More information on this will be made available closer to launch.
– We will accept credit card payments for subscriptions.”
