I preordered the game and just received my early invite email - unfortunately I'm at work and cannot try it until I get home. My question is .... I preordered from Amazon and I'm traveling out of town for the holidays and won't have computer axcess (other than my smart phone) and I won't even be home when my game arrives .... Can I still use the early invite and create my Character? Will my character get deleted if I'm not there on the 20th to put my game code in? Or should I wait to log on and create a character when I get back home? I have a friend pet/house sitting for me but they only know how to read the news and shop online - haha - which doesn't help with this dilemma. I played SWG since it's launch so I hope this new game will be as much fun! Can I go online now or should I wait? Thx for any advice!

You can play until the 20th but after that you'll have to wait until you get home and can get the key from your copy of the game.

Your characters will be there. Just in limbo. Different companies have different policies on Early Access, but it is usually like 14 days -longer before something happens to your characters if anything.

You will lose your early access status at some point. Most companies give you 5 days to receive your game.

Early Game Access* will begin on December 13th at 7:00AM EST, 2011 and ends on December 19th, 2011 at 10:01PM EST
That suggests you won't be able to log in without a code from 19th at 10:01pm EST.

Your created characters will stay for afew days at least though I havn't seen any official confirmation of how long. I should think a couple of weeks would be safe. But thats a complete guess on my part.
