Star Wars: The Old Republic collector’s edition announced, beta dated

Just in time for San Diego Comic Con, EA and BioWare have finally gotten around to detailing Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s collector’s edition.

Should you be so inclined to drop $149.99 on the collector’s edition, you’ll get yourself a 9 inch Darth Malgus statue, a 14 x 20 inch galaxy map, a security authentication key fob, a Star Wars: The Old Republic soundtrack, Master Gnost-Dural’s journal featuring sketches and additional backstory, and, of course, the game itself.

If you’d prefer to go with the digital (and less expensive) option, you’ll be able to get the digital deluxe edition for $79.99. This one doesn’t come with a statue or a journal, but it does come with a few unique in-game items, including the Flare Gun, Training Droid, HoloDancer, HoloCam and an exclusive vehicle dubbed STAP (Single Trooper Aerial Platform).

If that’s not enough good news for you, EA announced today that Star Wars: The Old Republic will go into open beta in September. The beta will available on “Beta Test Weekends”, and will be open to “select players”. If you’d like to ensure your early access, you can pre-order a copy at your retailer of choice to get in on the action ahead of its release later this holiday season.
