Star Wars: The Old Republic News

Latest Headlines for Star Wars: The Old Republic

  • Knights of the Fallen Empire - BioWare Ups its Game

    Star Wars: The Old Republic's newest expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, starts off with a bang and just doesn't let go. I thought BioWare really upped its game with Shadow of Revan, but I had to check to make sure I was actually still playing SWTOR when I jumped into KOTFE for the first time today.

  • 'But Do You Love Me?' No Companion Needs to Say Again

    With the launch of the early access program for the Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, a big change will be coming to the companion system that can be boiled down to the change from gaining "affection" to earning "influence". The more influence, the more power a companion has which has a direct relationship to companion damage, healing, and health.

  • Is Knights of the Fallen Empire SWTOR’s Sequel?

    There are a host of sweeping game changes coming to SWTOR when Knights of the Fallen Empire launches later this morning. We were scheduled to have some early hands-on time with BioWare's expansion, but some technical oddities with the test server and Mike Bitton's access kept that from happening. Instead, like you all, we're now watching the clock and waiting for 11am Eastern to roll along.

The forums are aflame with players letting developers know in no uncertain terms (overall) that this is an unwanted feature.

  • KotFE May Be the Expansion You’re Looking For

    It may seem at odds to use the words "epic" and "accessible" in the same sentence, but Bioware and EA's upcoming expansion to Star Wars: The Old Republic seeks to embody both of those terms in equal measure. If the entirety of Knights of the Fallen Empire (KotFE) is matched by the brief playthrough that I was privy to at an offsite preview yesterday, the expansion is going to pack quite a bit of a punch, while still being inviting to newer players.
