It’s official- The NDA is no more!

I wrote the other day about how it’s time to drop the NDA for SWTOR. With so many people testing now and an upcoming open beta weekend session, it seems pointless to keep the tight NDA restrictions in place for game testers. Apparently Bioware was thinking the same thing as the time has come.
This just in today from GregZeschuk:
Folks,

As of now, the non disclosure portion of our Game Testing Agreement isofficially lifted. While all players must still accept the Game Testing Agreement,from this point on testers may now freely talk about their experiences thispast weekend in the game, as well as post screenshots and gameplay videos oftheir testing experiences. We encourage you to come join us on the official Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Forumsto share your experiences!

The Star Wars: The Old Republiccommunity site will have a copy of this message on the forums and it will alsoappear in the Patcher. Players may not talk about nor reprint posts from ourtesting forums as they are still fully covered by the confidentiality portionsof our Game Testing Agreement. And all players who want to participate in theupcoming Beta Test Weekends still have to accept all terms of the Game TestingAgreement. So, other than that, free feel to talk about and share yourexperiences in Star Wars: TheOld Republic.

My thanks go out to everyone who has beta tested and continues to beta test thegame. It has been with your help and feedback that Star Wars: The Old Republic is where it is today. We reallyappreciate your efforts.

May the Force be with you!

Greg Zeschuk
VP, Electronic Arts, BioWare Austin, General Manager
