SWTOR early-start on the 13th

EA’s giving those who pre-order BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic a week-long headstart.

December 13 — a full seven days before the sci-fi MMO’s worldwide launch on the 20th — is the day the early bird’s adventures begin.

It’s not too late to get in either, with EA saying most retailers should still have pre-orders available. Plus, if you want to go the all-digital route, you can always grab it from Origin before the 20th.

The game client has started pre-loading as well, so you should be ready with time to spare.
