Star Wars: The Old Republic will be released later this year, report Eurogamer, but not before the conclusion of a series of weekend beta tests set to take place in September. The news follows yesterday's announcement detailing the pricey Old Republic special editions and pre-order deals. It may be few months yet until game is out, but you can join the PC Gamer guilds right now. Europeans can sign up with the 250-strong force of the mighty Mint Imperials, while US players can join the 400-strong Coconut Monkeys.
