Via Twitter, SWTOR Community Manager, Stephen "Rockjaw" Reid has revealed that players, invited to the final phase of testing, have been sent out schedules and will jump online for the final burst of gameplay on Friday or Saturday.
This final push towards the release date also signals the impending closure of the Pre-Launch Guild Program. Players have until December 2nd to apply to transfer their current guilds over before the servers are switched off in preparation for launch day.
Bioware warns players that this is the last chance for beta testers to designate allies and adversaries and make any changes to their guilds before the cut-off point.

Along the way, players will befriend courageous companions who will fight at their side or possibly betray them, based on the their actions. You can also choose to team up with friends to battle enemies and overcome challenges using typical Star Wars combat, including light-saber battles.
