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. The video doesn’t show too much about what to expect with the new expansion,  but it seems like it will feature moral decisionmaking. 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.

GamesCom 2012: Interview with Gabe Amatangelo from DarthHater

During the first day of GamesCom, DarthHater had the opportunity to get a quick interview with BioWare’s Gabe Amatangelo. Since it was short, they focused on some of the key areas that BioWare has presented at the event – Ancient Hypergates Warzone, future Operation content, and more. It’s a fun interview and I always like hearing from Gabe. The DH crew know how to ask just the right questions, even when pushed for time and they know how to try to dig up those little pieces of information we don’t already have (whenever an interview subject is willing to give it). Here is a snippet of that interview: First of all, you’re showing Ancient Hypergates at GamesCom right? Gabe Amatangelo: Correct. Yes.
