Open beta has been announced to close September the 19th at 5pm PDT. Servers set to close down at 1am on the 20th GMT. Remember you will have your name reserved on the server you create your character on. This is three days before the collectors edition of the game.
So with just over a week left of open beta for those of you playing in beta enjoy yourself and look forward to the real thing in little over a weeks time.
We will organize the setup of the linkshell nearer to the launch day to make sure we are all in the shell from as early as possible.
Here are a few screen shots from my brief open beta sessions.
