We wanted to bring our love of this great IP to life in a way that let players shape their own story making meaningful choices along the way that made the experience your…

How would you feel if you got a character named after you in SWTOR? This is one of the highest honors for a video game fan and it happens from time to time in some games, with someone who has done something special or recognizable with the game or the community. This is awesome but we’ll let Mynock tell you about it himself in his own words: The folks at BioWare have bestowed a huge honour on me by naming a character in Star Wars the Old Republic after me! “Mynock” is a mando warrior NPC who can be found guarding the entrance to Shae Vizla’s camp on the planet Darvannis in the latest STWOR expansion “Mandalore’s Revenge”. I had a little bit of say in the armor type, colour scheme and weapon he’s sporting, so now I have no excuse for not finishing my Shae Armor set! It shall be…

SWTOR Next Expansion Could be Named KOTET?

celebration

We love hearing about new SWTOR content and while we’re waiting on BioWare to release any new updates and info, we have to busy ourselves taking little clues wherever we might see them. This is one such case. According to a panel list from Star Wars Celebration, the next expansion could be named SWTOR: KOTET. This could mean Knights of the Eternal Throne. What are some other theories of what it might stand for? Redditor Sakowenteta saw this little gem on the Star Wars Celebration exhibitor list. It listed SWTOR as Star Wars the Old Republic KOTET. Could be a misspelling of KOTFE or the abbreviation of the next expansion. So what do you think? What could it mean? You can see it yourself here: http://www.starwarscelebration.com/en/Exhibitors/1792379/EA-Star-Wars (Edit: it’s now been updated and doesn’t show this anymore.) Here’s a screen capture of what it did look like: Does the fact that it…
