Star Wars: The Old Republic will go live in December, which means it's time for the Old Republic's guilds to enter their final phase, deployment. A post on The Old Republic site explains that TOR guilds can now deploy to become fully fledged in-game guilds, but "four members of the guild must have pre-ordered the game and redeemed their Pre-Order Code at the Code Redemption Center" in order for that to work.

The Old Republic's release date is still clouded by the Dark Side of the Force, but we've been able to form guilds for months. Now, Massively report that the ominously named "Phase 2: Alignment" stage is now underway, letting each guild ally or declare animosity with up three others.
