Catching Up With SW: The Old Republic

Posted By Mike on June 18, 2011

E3 excitement may be dying down, but the official site of Star Wars: The Old Republic has a few new updates for you to enjoy this Father's Day weekend.

TOR made one heck of a smash at E3 2011. While you can click here to check out TFN's coverage, SWTOR.com has added a new post highlighting what a big hit the upcomming MMO was at the expo.

From there we move on to the latest developer blog which focuses in on the post-writing polish process. Note the first line in the excerpt below.

"Writing is complete on Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. The last lines of dialogue are off for recording and translation; only pickups and polish remain. But at BioWare, a writer's job doesn't stop at the written word. I'm Ian Ryan, a Writer on The Old Republic, and I'm going to show you some of the many ways a BioWare writer continues to shape our game’s stories long after the writing is finished.

There are no less than seventeen planets in The Old Republic. Each one was conceptualized with a rich story, built by our talented world designers then lovingly brought to life by our art team. However as the game's final pieces fall into place, some areas don't perfectly reflect the stories that take place within them: a field is peaceful when it should be battle-scarred, or a residential district lacks the feel of a neighborhood."



Fan Friday also returns with a number of the regular features you've come to expect:

- Community Creations
- Fan Art
- Fan Site Spotlight
- Concept Art
- Forum Icons
- Polls


And venturing away from the TOR site, VGChartz.com reports that while EA recently launched it's Origin online store, players of Star Wars: The Old Republic will not be required to utilize Origin in order to play the game.
