Catching Up With SW: The Old Republic

Posted By Mike on March 18, 2012

Are you enjoying your weekend pass? As per usual, let's start with news from the official site of Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The latest Developer Blog features BioWare's Chris Boyd diving into the story of Game Update 1.2. An excerpt of the intro is below but make sure to click here for the full read.

"Star Wars? has always been a continuing saga from the moment that the phrase ?Episode IV? scrolled upwards onto movie screens. With those words an ongoing, epic story was born, and Star Wars?: The Old Republic? continues the tradition.

I?m Charles Boyd, a writer here at BioWare Austin for Star Wars: The Old Republic and I wanted to share a sneak peek at the story behind Game Update 1.2. The development team has designed each of our game updates to shed a bit more light on the state of the galaxy and the ongoing war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, with new story details and hints about the future spread across every piece of content. Game Update 1.2 will be our biggest update yet, but your adventure in a galaxy far, far away is just getting started!

Note: The next section contains information about Game Update 1.2?s story and may spoil the game for some. Read on at your own risk!"

Another new article at SWTOR.com goes into more detail for Game Update 1.2 and informs players that Legacy is now available on the Public Test Server.

Your weekly TOR Patch Note Update, covering patches 1.1.5a and 1.1.5b, can be found here.

Finally from SWTOR.com, this week saw the return of the Friday Community Q&A. Topics for this installment include character slot adjustments, in-combat revivals, additional Quickbars, enhanced character customization, and more.

And moving away from the official site to some quick-hit links...

PlatformNation.com covered Dallas Dickinson's Star Wars: The Old Republic presentations from South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

Massively gives their detailed impressions after getting hands-on with Game Update 1.2.

CNet.com takes a look ahead to the updates coming to TOR in April.

And in market progress news, Gamasutra.com reports that The Old Republic is experiencing continued growth while VentureBeat.com asserts that TOR "was built to thrive in a WoW world."
