Not charged for game via Origin?

So I pre ordered the Digital Standard Edition from Origin.

I got charged the $5 for the pre order fee, and got my pre order code.

I was however not charged the $59 for the actual game, and not given a code. Will this come I am assuming on the day Early Access starts/The release of the actual game?

I just want to make sure Im not sitting here playing the Early Access, and the 20th comes along and I get kicked off for not having the actual game (aka not physically paying for it.)


*I contacted the SWTOR team, but they said I had to contact Origin. Tried that, 2 hour wait on Chat and Phone rep never available : (

That chat line has an endless wait time, just keeps getting longer and longer. And AFAIK that's the only way to cancel. Tricky!

You get charged when the game launches, not before.

I contacted Origin today and talked to them about it. My order wasn't showing up on pending orders or anything. I gave them my order number and the guy said that I was fine. I waited for the live chat for about an hour or so to get ahold of someone. I think they might have a contact by email thing you can ask them about it if you have your order number.

Same thing happened to me too.

I cant find Swtor under "My Games" in Origin, but on my bank I can see theres been a withdraw.

The code that was first sent to you just after purchasing swtor is a code that basically puts you in queue/line for early access S/N which you will receieve at any moment before 19th.

On launch day you have your retail S/N mailed to you.

You'll be charged in the 16th, the day they'll send the product code.
