BioWare giving two-day grace period for SWTOR

If you don't input your code in time, you'll meet SWTOR's bouncer.

When Star Wars: The Old Republic finally releases this coming Tuesday, gamers who pre-ordered the game and got into the Early Game Access period will have exactly 48 hours after the game’s launch to register their product codes.

The announcement was made today by BioWare, which stated that purchasers of all versions of the game will have until 12:01pm EST on December 22 to get their code entered. After that time, players in Early Game Access will be cut off and required to have a valid payment method and product registration code attached to their account in order to continue playing.

Anyone who has purchased their copy of the game via Origin can expect their code to arrive via email after today, December 16, and before 11:59pm on December 19. Physical copies of the game, both standard and collector’s, will have the codes included.

BioWare recommended that players register their product registration code as soon as possible to ensure seamless entry into the game, a smooth experience on the account website, and to collect any special gifts and items they may be entitled to.

“We understand that for some, your copy of the game may still arrive on or after 22nd December,” BioWare heads Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk told fans on the SWTOR Forum. “Unfortunately, we cannot extend the grace period any further. We suggest you contact your retailer to discuss shipping options, if this is a concern.”

The 30 day game time that will be included with each copy of the game will not be affected by the grace period.

“We know this has been an issue for some of you, and we apologize for the concerns,” continued Muzyka and Zeschuk. “We’re looking forward to welcoming all of you to the official launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic!”
