There’s a thread on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic forums where some people are claiming to have received an email inviting them into a closed beta starting this weekend. On the second page of the thread there’s a post that says theÂ initialÂ wave of testers would only number between 100 and 200 people.
Is it true? We don’t know yet, but BioWare’s Sean Dahlberg made a post in that same thread where he did not deny that testing would begin this weekend.
[UPDATE] Screen caps of the actual invite page have leaked out as confirmation. This initial, and tiny, beta is just for this weekend (June 25-27) and those chosen for the test will only be able to test Korriban and play either a Sith Warrior or Sith Inquisitor.
