Catching Up With SW: The Old Republic

Posted By Mike on April 10, 2012

Due to the holiday weekend, we're a little late on our TOR round-up, but a late round-up is better than no round up...

Kicking things off, SWTOR.com has released a new video previewing the upcoming Novare Coast Warzone...

"We are excited to reveal Novare Coast, our latest Player-vs-Player Warzone featured in the upcoming Game Update 1.2 “Legacy” for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

On the war-torn planet of Denova, opposing forces vie for control of Novare Coast, a strategically vital beachhead that leads to the open oceans of Denova. Whoever controls this coastline will have a decisive advantage in taking control of the planet. To secure the beach, sides battle for control of three mortar turrets which can be used to pound the enemy with artillery fire.

See the Warzone for yourself by checking out the latest video."



The Warzone preview isn't the only new video addition to the official Star Wars: The Old Republic site. Lead Interface Artist Michael Voigt dives into User Interface customization in a video you can view here.


On the TOR community front, the latest Friday Q&A was all about the upcoming Game Update 1.2. Check out the excerpt below but then click here for the full read.

"Leonalis: When will we get the titles promised for playing on PTS? Will it be for all my characters?

Stephen Reid (Senior Community Manager): Short answer: after Game Update 1.2 goes live and yes! There are two in-game titles that will be granted to anyone who created a new character on the Public Test Server. Both titles will be placed after your character’s name. The first title is given for attaining Level 10 with any new character on PTS, and it is ‘First Line of Defense’. The second title is given for finishing Chapter 1 with any new character on PTS, and it is ‘The Cutting Edge’.

We’ll be granting these titles soon after Game Update 1.2 goes live, and you’ll receive the titles across your account for all characters, both existing and new. You’ll get the titles via in-game mail, similar to the Founder’s Medal, so keep an eye on your mailbox. In addition, these titles will still be available to be gained from playing on PTS in the future.

Daezihang: Are Mortar Volley and Death from Above actually functioning the same now? How much faster does MV start its damage?

Austin Peckenpaugh (Senior Designer): Yes, this was the motivation for the change. Mortar Volley and Death From Above now fire projectiles at the same time and those projectiles travel at the same speed, dealing the same damage. As for how much faster MV starts its damage - the answer is "much faster."'



And lastly from SWTOR.com, you can click here for the Dev Tracker Summary from April 3-9, 2012.


Kotaku got a chance to play the new Novare Coast Warzone and seemed to enjoy the experience.

MSNBC also previewed Update 1.2 and proclaims that the new Warzone is the best improvement.

Speaking of TOR videos, the official Star Wars: The Old Republic YouTube channel has a variety of Guild Summit videos that may be of interest. We've embedded one of the videos that centers on User Interface below.




Game Update 1.2 is right around the corner. We'll be sure to keep you posted when it goes live.
