'Star Wars: The Old Republic' Beta Testing Sign Ups Crash Site

‘Star Wars: The Old Republic’ Beta Testing Sign Ups Crash Site

700px-Star_Wars_The_Old_Republic_first_logoAs you’ve seen, there’s been a lot of excitement here on The Flickcast with the two upcoming non-fantasy genre based MMOs. Between Star Wars: The Old Republic and DC Universe Online , the MMO world currently dominated by World of Warcraft is going to be getting a run for its money. To help further the hype, Star Wars: The Old Republic put Beta Key signups live on their website today. This would allow a group of selected players to try out and test the features of the game before it became available to the general public for sale.

The response was so intense to this announcement that the sheer volume of people going to SW: TOR’s site caused the sign up page to crash. Doubtful that Bioware didn’t expect this level of hype, it is still amazing that so many people found out about the Beta signups and came on so quickly in hopes of the limited spots that the site was brought down for repairs by noon on its first day.

On the plus side, it’s better that the developers find out their problems now and get as many testers as they can for the game. As seen in the past, a glitch and bug filled launch day for the retail release can spell doom for many MMO’s.

Stay tuned to The Flickcast for more on Star Wars: The Old Republic and we’ll let you know if we get one of those Beta spots to take an early peek at the game.
