Apparently a Polish website released images and details of the SWTOR collector’s edition pre-order.
Many of our members have speculated that this comes prior to an official announcement from Bioware of a release date and pre-order details in the United States. We are concerned that based on the current state of SWTOR based on those involved in Beta that EA will push Bioware to release the game prematurely. The playable build showcased at E-3 was rife with bugs and other glaring issues including an absence of pvp beyond a handful of small battleground/scenario encounters.
