Star Wars: The Old Republic News - Possible 'Legacy' Species

Game Update 1.2 will see the expansion of playable species (existing species only) for the various classes in Star Wars: The Old Republic via the game's Legacy system. In the future, the Legacy system will also introduce entirely new species to the game, but which ones? We take a look at some of the possibilities in this week's column.

The catlike Cathar is a species I feel is probably one of the more likely ones BioWare will add to Star Wars: The Old Republic in the future. Players are already familiar with them due to KOTOR’s Juhani and the Trooper companion Aric Jorgan. It also helps that they’re different enough while also being completely humanoid.
