SW:TOR Other playable races confirmed?
Hey all, just a real quick post that I wanted to get out regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic.
I was reading through my RSS feed this morning and I came across this story on Kotaku.
I could be late to the news, but to this point, I hadn’t seen any sort of confirmation that we would be playing any race but human. Does the Kotaku story pretty much reveal at least one more additional race (Twi’lek)?
If so, this changes some of my perceptions on the game. I had always liked my Twi’lek smuggler in Star Wars: Galaxies, and had to this point been determined that a Trooper would be the first class to receive the “Slurms” moniker. Now it seems I may have to see what my options are.
This also makes me wonder how much longer we’ll really be waiting for a release. The game seems to be in a stage when the development team are adding content as fast as they can make it, and find tuning things like animations. While adding more skins for additional races really wouldn’t be that hard, making sure things like racial traits balance out in PvP combat can take some serious macro adjustements.
