BioWare have begun rolling out and testing their new high-population server technology for Star Wars: The Old Republic.  

The move comes ahead of an imminent switchover to free-to-play, a decision that will most likely lead to massively increased numbers of players.

In an effort to avoid any server overload, the developer have begun testing new server technology in order to massively increase the current users on the servers.

According to egmnow.com, “BioWare has opened a new server in its public test area and copied every single character from East Coast servers over to it.”

The server is available for use, and you can download the PTS and log-in as normal.
