Space Combat Confirmed

Space Combat Confirmed - MMORPG.com

At this weekend's Comic Con in San Diego, Star Wars: The Old Republic developers were on hand for a special panel. During their talk, devs confirmed that space combat will be an integral part of The Old Republic. Devs have a plan to reveal more about space combat in the upcoming weeks including a spread in the October 2010 issue of PC Gamer which goes on sale in mid-August.

If you’ve been following the news coming out of the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ panel at Comic-Con International, you’ve heard the announcement that we will indeed have Space Combat as part of the TOR experience! But what does that mean? Space combat is an alternative gameplay experience to the primary game of storytelling, questing, and ground-based combat. In space combat, you fly your personal ship to various “hot spots” on your galaxy map. From there, you will blast your way through asteroid fields, enemy fighters, frigates, destroyers, and a variety of other obstacles that will evoke memories of some of the great Star Wars™ space battles. To learn more, pick up the October 2010 edition of PC Gamer which hits newsstands starting August 17th for screenshots and an exclusive interview or check back with us in the weeks to come.

Participate in the discussion on the SWTOR forums.
