The Old Republic: Pre-order details and minimum specs

4 comments
As I posted here, Bioware have officially started accepting pre-orders for The Old Republic. There are three editions of the game available, which I've detailed below along with the minimum PC specifications required to run the game. There is also a great new montage video for the pre-order announcement which I've embedded below.

Full details of all editions can be found here.

Collector's Edition
  • Pre-Order Exclusive:
  • 30 Days Game Time included
  • Limited Collector's Edition Includes:
  • Exclusive Gentle Giant Darth Malgus statue
  • Game disks collectible metal case
  • The Journal of Master Gnost-Dural as annotated by Satele Shan
  • The Old Republic galaxy map
  • Custom Security Authentication Key
  • Music of Star Wars: The Old Republic CD
  • High-quality Collector's Edition box

Digital Deluxe Edition (downloadable)
  • Pre-Order Exclusive:
  • 30 Days Game Time included

Standard Edition
  • Pre-Order Exclusive:
  • 30 Days Game Time included


Personally speaking I'm very tempted by the Collector's Edition, but at a UK price of £130 it's not cheap!

Bioware have also released the minimum specs for the game:

Minimum System Requirements

OS Windows XP, Vista/7
CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better · Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better
RAM Windows XP: 1.5GB · Windows Vista and Windows 7: 2GB · PCs using a built-in graphical chipset, 2GB RAM recommended.
Video ATI X1800 or better* · nVidia 7800 or better* · Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better*
DVD-ROM 8x or better *Minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM and Shader 3.0 or better support.

These look quite conservative to me actually, If you have a machine built in the last couple of years you should have no trouble running the game well, assuming these specs are accurate.

Finally there is a great new pre-order video montage. Check it out below. Exciting times!

  2. Hi Radi! I caved in - no willpower when it comes to TOR I'm afraid. Pre-ordered the Collector's Edition from GAME - just awaiting my code. I'm sure Lafala won't mind if I can't afford her Christmas present this year ;)

  3. Heh, I was thinking about it but went with the standard edition...

    that was for about half a day and then that git Somara phoned me and said "oh i'm in game and they got pre-orders for the CE, do you want one." grr the git!

    so now I have a CE :P
