BioWare has unfortunately had to delay beta testing invites for players in Europe who were hoping on getting their hands on Star Wars: The Old Republic a bit early.

Says BioWare:

"After a lengthy discussion here at the BioWare offices, the decision has been made to postpone the proposed Game Testing invites for EU players for a number of reasons.

Firstly, there's a new build of the game on the horizon. This is a major build, meaning there will be character wipes and a new client to download. As you may be aware, the current client download is around 27GB in size. If we were to invite players en masse today, those players would have to download the entirety of the client to access the game. There's every chance that later this week, the service will go offline and this new version will be rolled out, meaning everyone currently in Testing will have to not only download the entire client again (another 27GB download), but will also have their characters erased and have to start afresh. This is a relatively large amount to download in such a short space of time and not an experience we want new testers to be exposed to.

Secondly, this new build will bring about the first localised versions of Star Wars: The Old Republic, which means those of you that speak French and German will have the chance to play the game in those languages, for the first time ever. We're extremely excited to be able to offer this to our players and as such, we're keen to get a lot of feedback from European testers in particular."

We don't have any info on exactly when European players will be able to get their hands on the game, but we have every confidence that BioWare and EA are doing everything in their power to get the beta out there to as many players, globally, as possible.

In the meantime, however, check out http://www.swtor.com/ for more information on the game.
