Here's an update for customers who have pre-ordered Star Wars: The Old Republic that was scheduled to be released on December 20, 2011. Because beta access ends at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on December 19, 2011, we've decided to ship the game early to customers starting December 15, 2011. We'll be updating orders over the next two days and new estimated delivery times will appear in Your Account shortly after our updates are complete. These changes will be applied to your account automatically and there is no action needed on your part. Please see below for an update to estimated delivery times based on shipment method.
New Estimated Delivery Times for the Contiguous US:
* Release Date Delivery - on or before 12/19/2011
* One-Day Delivery - on or before 12/19/2011
* Two-Day Delivery - on or before 12/19/2011
* Standard Shipping - on or before 12/24/2011
* Super Saver Shipping - on or before 12/24/2011
Orders shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, and international addresses will also ship earlier than originally planned.
Once we've finished updating the orders, you'll be able to find your updated Estimated Delivery Time under "Your Orders" in Your Account:
Since extremely limited quantities of the Collector's Edition are available, we recommend not canceling an order for this edition unless you do not intend to order it again. Please note that customers who cancel and attempt to re-order the Collector's Edition may lose their place in line.
Please note that official game access is scheduled to begin at 12:01 a.m. on December 20, 2011. BioWare will be bringing down all servers for a short period of time before the launch of the game. You will be contacted in-game with details on this planned outage and when you can expect all servers to be back online.
We appreciate your patience and hope you enjoy the game.

**Update December 16, 2011**
The Star Wars: The Old Republic team is implementing a two day grace period for pre-order customers who have received early game access. To ensure a seamless transition into the live game, customers will have until 12:01 a.m. EST on December 22 in which to enter their product registration code, which can be found inside the Standard and Collector's Editions of the game. We recommend that you register your product code as soon as it becomes available. This adjustment will have no effect on the 30 days of game time that customers are entitled to starting December 20 at 12:01 a.m. EST.
