Instead the team will do a livestream with some gameplay of a chapter of the upcoming expansion.   PAX Cantina – Important Update: Revised Plan | 07.27.2015, 08:22 AM Hey folks, We wanted to give you an update on a change of plans around our Seattle Cantina, planned to happen around PAX Prime.

SWTOR At PAX East Coverage from Darth Hater

For anyone who did not get a chance to hear the Darthhater audio, Dulfy is offering up a transcript of it on Reddit. Darthater had some great coverage for the PAXEast 🙂 For those who don’t have time to listen to the original audio on Darthhater, I typed up the rough transcript of the Q& A panel: http://dulfy.net/2012/04/07/paxeast-2012-swtor-q-a-panel/ (hope you guys don’t mind ) It’s a pretty decent transcript and as always, we appreciate the time and effort Dulfy puts into helping Some of the highlights From Reddit: Q: Why are the smuggler missions not very smugglerly?

PAX Will Have a “Big Reveal” Regarding Companions

We’re all excited to hear all of the SWTOR news coming out of PAX this year but MMORPG.com has given us one more reason to get excited about PAX. In an interview with Rich Vogel, we learn some great things about the game as well as some things most of us already new. Still, it was a solid interview that’s worth the time to read over. The real big news came at the very end with a reference to a “big reveal” about companions at PAX. From the article by Carolyn Koh: “Companion characters will not be able to die,” said Rich, “we try not to let players do things that will hurt themselves. Companions can, however, be hurt, be captured, and not be able to adventure with your for a while.” There was more to the Companion system that I asked about, but they were saving it for a…
