Now we can finally sit in a chair…

It took BioWare a while, but finally we get the emote all players have been waiting for in Star Wars: The old Republic – /chair – and guess what it makes you do… It makes you sit down in one of the many many chairs around the game. Together with this emote comes another emote : /sleep, that makes you… Yes you guessed it right. Both emotes are on the Public test servers right now, and don’t seem to need unlocking, you just automatically have them unlocked! It is an interesting way to allow players to sit in chairs without having to reprogram stuff. While it’s not the ideal solution… I like it. Check them both out in the video below: Since it’s a generic emote and you’re not actually sitting on a chair/couch, you also won’t ever get any closer than the lip of the seat due to clipping,…

SWTOR Easter Egg? The secret of kolto

The Fanatical Swordsman has found something really cool that we had to share with you as well. It’s a really great SWTOR Easter Egg. From the author of the post: Recently, I saw a screenshot from the new Manaan content in the SWTOR patch coming up (thanks to Baffle on Twitter). If you’re still unsure of what you’re looking at, it’s lucky for us he is a chemist because he was able to realize: Kolto is caffeine! Ok gaming nerds, how awesome is that? Tell us, have you seen this before? Know of any other great Easter Eggs?

Below his forum post, we have added the patch notes. As you will notice this week from the patch notes, not all of 2.9 is on PTS yet.

New SWTOR Event and New Alien Species on PTS

Will we soon be seeing a new alien species in SWTOR? Data-mined info says it’s possible, although little more is known at this time. Here are some images of a potential new race (playable?) that we might see coming with a future content update that is also supposed to bring a new SWTOR event. swtor_miner explains some of what the data shows about the model, “These new aliens fall into the Bothan semi-custom model category, and not the full-custom model Wookiee one. This means they share animations with regular humanoid species.”   I agree that I don’t think this will be a playable race based on what the datamining found. Probably they will be NPC models but perhaps this shows us what the new event or some of the new content will be about. Of course, this early in the process, the whole thing could be scrapped. We can never…
