In preparation for the official release of Star Wars: The Old Republic, we wanted to make sure that everyone has the correct game client installed on their machine.

If you participated in our Game Testing Program before November 25th, we recommend that you uninstall the game testing client (refer to instructions below) and then download and install the launch game client. We’ll update this post with more instructions when they’re available. The size of the launch game client is approximately 27 GB.

If you have played in our game testing program at any point from November 25th onwards, you will not need to re-install the game client, as you should already have the launch version installed.

To verify that you have the launch version installed, you can check for the "assets_swtor_main" version file in the following location on your computer: \Program Files (x86)\EA\BioWare\Star Wars – The Old Republic\assets. If you have that file present, you do not need to reinstall the game client.

With that said, some users may notice that their game client folder is much larger than 27 GB on their system. This may be due to having redundant files from previous versions of the client. If you need to clear up space, we recommend completely uninstalling the client and downloading and installing the launch game client. Again, we’ll update this post with more instructions when they’re available.

To Uninstall the Game Client:
    Click on the Start bar and open up your "Control Panel."
    Under "Programs" select "Uninstall a Program" (Windows 7) or "Add or Remove Programs" (Windows XP).
    Select "Star Wars – The Old Republic."
    Right Click on the title and select "Uninstall" (Windows 7) or "Remove" (Windows XP).
    Follow all the uninstall steps to remove the game from the PC.
    Make sure the following directories no longer exists (or are empty):
    -C:\Program Files (x86)\EA\BioWare\Star Wars – The Old Republic
    -C:\Program Files (x86)\BioWare\Star Wars – The Old Republic


Note: If you do not see an entry for Star Wars – The Old Republic in your program list, please try the following...
    Click on the Start bar and open up Computer.
    Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\BioWare\
    Locate the "Uninstall Star Wars – The Old Republic.exe" file and launch it.
    Follow all the uninstall steps, listed above, to remove the game from the PC.

Yes. This is what voicing the turn-ins and intros for several hundred hours' worth of quest content does to your install size, Taly. :P

Don't worry. You won't be downloading it since pre-ordering is for chumps or whatever it was you said. :roll: :lol:

I'd be curious to see what the largest (GB-wise) game ever made is. SW:TOR has to be up there.

dir /s shows WoW to be 36 GB.


But I suppose I may have some patch files that could be cleared out.

Hi everyone, we just updated the original post. The correct directory has been confirmed and you need 27GB of free space total, but your actual game client file will be smaller.

I'm surprised they didn't just post that on twitter.

Because I just built my new system yesterday, I had to download and re-install again. Took me under 2 hours from start to being in game playing, if only for just a few hours before beta came down. Turns out that was okay, as now I don't have to uninstall, re-download again. yay!
