BioWare Senior Community Coordinator David Bass posted the news on the game’s official forums:

Yesterday, BioWare made an announcement that we have a space at the Hilton Gaslamp hotel across the street from Comic-Con where fans can get their hands on Mass Effect 3 and the newest Dragon Age II DLC. Well, surprisingly enough, The Old Republic is planning on being there as well! Anyone (yes, even you!) can come to the Hilton and wait in line to play any of the BioWare games.

Those of you who have Comic-Con badges, never fear. We will definitely have the game playable on the show floor too, but as we’ve always said, our goal is to get as many people playing as possible at these events, and we figured the best way to do that was to extend the experience outside of Comic-Con.

And later when asked for more specifics on dates and times the game would be open to play, he posted this response:

The current plan is for the space to be open during each day of Comic-Con, likely extending beyond show floor hours too. Plans are very much subject to change, however. And we may not have played all of our cards just yet.

This is great news for fans of the long-awaited game, whether you were able to score a ticket to the con or not. Keep watching for more information as it is announced.
