BioWare Beefs Up Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Security

Posted on November 8, 2011 AT 07:47am

THE BUZZ: BioWare has announced plans to improve security on its upcoming MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, that will effect users who registered before or on October 21st.

Users who are effected will be required to change their current passwords in compliance with new security measures the developer has put in place. Passwords must now be between eight and fifteen characters long, containing at least one upper-case letter, one lower-case letter, and one number. Emails will be sent out to users when the password reset takes place.

EGM’s TAKE: This is only a precaution on BioWare’s part and is a good thing for fans as it will ensure that their accounts are safe before the game’s launch.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
