BioWare is looking into Legacy Wide Datacrons

The SWTOR Developers are looking into implementing legacy wide datacrons. If all goes right, this might be included in the upcoming Fallen Empire expansion. Datacrons Are For Legacies | 08.11.2015, 02:48 PM Hey folks! I wanted to pass on a little tidbit that I heard this morning. We are very actively looking to put Legacy-wide Datacrons into Knights of the Fallen Empire! We know this has been widely requested for many years and so the Design team is working as we speak to get it in. As always, this is not a guarantee that it will make it in, but the team is hard at work to make it happen. -eric

Who Is Nico Okarr, The New SWTOR Companion?

You’ve probably already heard that the upcoming expansion Knights of the Fallen Empire will feature a new companion but what do you really know about that companion? Nico Okarr will be made available to players who were actively subscribed on July 31st or August 10th, 2015. You may recall Nico from the third trailer for SWTOR, Return. In this trailer he was being escorted to a holding cell by Satele Shan and Jace Malcolm. Here it is for those who need refreshing: As you will see, Nico is a smuggler archetype and we really know very little about him. Of course the assumption is this will all be revealed in the companion story line. The Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia says he used to work for the Hutt Cartel and we know from the trailer that he was caught smuggling Sith artifacts. IN typical Smuggler style, he wears a cowboy hat and duster and he duel…

New SWTOR: Knights of the Fallen Empire gameplay Trailer

During Gamecon 2015, EA unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic’s upcoming expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire.

When the expansion goes live, you will be able to continue on your existing character, or you can create a brand new one that starts at level 60, thereby skip all old.  Either way, you’ll take on the role of The Outlander. Check out the trailer below:

SWTOR Fallen Empire story chapter length and new content

A new video that was published by Lady Insanity shows many details about chapter length, unspecified new content, and romance choices that has been revealed from BioWare. Some of the key points in the video are: Chapter 1 will be the tutorial chapter and many of the abilities will be locked. However, you can unlock abilities as you progress through the game. All subscribers will receive the free level 60 character and it will have plenty of gear to kill enemies in Chapter 1 but you won’t receive any credits. All of the chapters will be at least 1 hour long altogether. This includes cut scenes, choice wheels, and conversations. Some of the chapters will actually be longer than this. Romance in the game can get complicated if you decide to cheat on your loved one. Other characters in the game can find out if you have been romancing another…

EA’s Fallen Empire Preview with Creative Director Jesse Sky

  EA posted a snippet on the official EA site, of a preview with Creative Director  on Star Wars: The old Republic Jesse Sky, on the upcoming Fallen Empire expansion coming in October. BioWare goes back to its roots for: Knights of the Fallen Empire What goes into crafting the new expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic – Knights of the Fallen Empire? Creative director Jesse Sky takes things back to the beginning. Back to basics Last year, I decided to re-watch The Empire Strikes Back® and write down everything that shocked the audience back in its original theatrical run. It’s a very long list. That film packs a real emotional punch—it’s full of twists, betrayals and revelations the entire way through. I’ve wanted to tell a Star Wars™ story like that ever since the first time I saw it.     When we began conceptualizing Knights of the Fallen…
