As Star Wars: The Old Republic
continues to plug along, let's resume our semi-regular catching-up feature with the ongoing MMO. Today we have a couple sweet videos, a Holonet interview, a Developer Blog and the Community Cantina Tour is set to hit the Big Apple. But first, the videos!
If the new "Join the Battle" live-action video
doesn't make you want to grab your ForceFX lightsaber and run out into the center of town, nothing will.
From there we move on to the "Best of PvP" trailer
The latest SWTOR.com developer blog
features a communication from Master Gnost-Dural, Keeper of the Jedi Archives, detailing what is known of the Dread Masters. You can check out an excerpt below but click here
for the full read."Firstly, our records confirm that the Dread Masters are human, despite many rumors to the contrary. Biological scans conducted after their capture by Master Kaedan confirmed this, though their lifespans have extended well beyond the norm for that species. We do not know the extent of their longevity, nor the world (or worlds) they came from. We donít even know their true names.
The Dread Mastersí goals are similarly mysterious. We know that they are no longer affiliated with the Sith Empire, despite the fact that Imperial forces are responsible for rescuing them from our prison facilities on Belsavis. That they would betray the Empire theyíve served for so many years is unexpected, but not necessarily unexplainable. (I can elaborate on my theories in a future report, if requested.)"
In a HoloNet News Exclusive Interview, Lamalla Rann goes in-depth with the legendary Huttball host Baron Deathmark. The interview could not be contained in one post so click here
for Part 1 and then here
for the newly released Part 2.
