As if you needed one more reason to check out Comic Con in San Diego this year, BioWare has announced they will be setting up a TOR demo. David Bass, Senior Community Coordinator announced on the official TOR forums
that they will be making an appearance at Comic Con. However, the best news is that you don’t even have to have a Comic Con badge to have a chance at trying the game.
“Yesterday, BioWare made an announcement
that we have a space at the Hilton Gaslamp hotel across the street from Comic-Con where fans can get their hands on Mass Effect 3 and the newest Dragon Age II DLC. Well, surprisingly enough, The Old Republic is planning on being there as well! Anyone (yes, even you!) can come to the Hilton and wait in line to play any of the BioWare games.
Those of you who have Comic-Con badges, never fear. We will definitely have the game playable on the show floor too, but as we’ve always said, our goal is to get as many people playing as possible at these events, and we figured the best way to do that was to extend the experience outside of Comic-Con.
Of course, we have no way of guaranteeing that you’ll get to play if you come down to San Diego. We still expect long lines both inside and outside the show, so understand that even if you decide to come down, we can never promise you’ll get hands-on. But we’ll do our very best to make sure you have an enjoyable experience no matter what.”
Man, do I wish I still lived in San Diego!
While Bass warns that it will be packed and they cannot promise everyone a chance at a hands-on, this is an exciting opportunity for anyone who doesn’t have a Comic Con badge to get up close and personal with SWTOR
. Stay tuned here for more updates and insights as we have them.
