I will post the mod list as soon as I can. There is lots of amazing work being showed here and they all deserve all the credit in the world.” Peragus in HD So there you have it in high definition.

Star Wars: Battlefront Will Return to the “Roots and Ethos” of the Franchise

Posted by on Apr 22, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

As we all anxiously await the release of Star Wars: Battlefront, we enjoy finding any and all information we can about the game. According to DICE general manager Patrick Bach, the upcoming shooter is so much more than a big-budget Battlefield mod. Bach says they are going back to the roots and ethos of the franchise with Star Wars: Battlefront, something that many fans of the series are going to be very happy to see. Eurogamer spoke to the DICE GM about the game and what the studio is doing to make it more than just a “big-budget Battlefield mod.” “Let me go back to when we got our hands on it, when it all started,” Bach said. “The whole idea of building a Star Wars Battlefront game is about two things. First of all, it’s called Star Wars Battlefront for a reason, so [we’re] going back to the roots and the core ethos of that. And then on top of that, it’s Star Wars together with LucasFilm. So we have the opportunity to work with them...

Satele Shan VS Darth Maul

Posted by on Apr 22, 2015 in video | 0 comments

Satele Shan vs. Darth Maul – Here’s another versus matchup video we think you might enjoy. Who do you see the victor in this showdown? If you ask me, I say Satele has it by a long shot but it could be just because I am such a fan. This is not to known on Darth Maul. He was an amazing duelist. In fact, were it not for Satele’s ability with The Force, she could easily finish him off. Some will argue that since Shan is a grandmaster, this isn’t even a fight and she would take it by a landslide. However, Maul was very powerful and skilled with the sabers and I still believe would put up a good fight in a versus battle such as this. A lot of it also comes down to timing, and where in their story each is when they are pitted against one another. Each had their own journeys and growth to experience and this could affect how they match up against one another. So it’s important to also look at story and timing if you’re going to pit these two together in a...

Five Things to Know about Ziost

Posted by on Apr 21, 2015 in Planets of TOR, Ziost | 0 comments

  A new planet is coming to SWTOR with update 3.2 and you might be surprised at how it was eerily predicted years ago. Those of us who have been following and writing about SWTOR since launch (or even before launch, as is the case with us here at SWTOR Strategies) know that the game has experienced quite the evolution. There are also some fun and interesting memories that have been made along the way. Larry Everett from Hyperspace Beacon knows about this very well and his recent post about Ziost is a good indicator of this. During pre-launch, we were all still learning about what planets would be in the game. Many fans had ideas and suggestions but not all of these would line up well with SWTOR’s time in history. Bespin was mentioned, as was Kashyyyk. Of the many popular planets, some just would not make sense to the time period that SWTOR is set in. So among the guesses of what planets we might see came Larry’s and not everyone thought it was a serious idea....
