This coming Saturday, SWTOR fans attending SDCC will have the opportunity to attend a special panel and meet & greet with the team from BioWare at the Star Wars: The Old Republic Community Cantina Panel and Meet and Greet. Things kick off at 11am with a lengthy Story Panel, and wrap up later that evening at 10pm following the meet and greet session.

For the Story Panel (11am – 4pm), the development team will be discussing the making of the Knights of the Fallen Empire Cinematic Trailer, as well as the process of returning to their storytelling roots for the upcoming digital expansion. The increased focus on storytelling is perhaps my most anticipated aspect of the new expansion, as it's always nice to feel like the choices you make actually matter, and can have a proper impact on the virtual worlds you choose to inhabit. 

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new trailer, we’ve added it below in all its glory for your viewing enjoyment.

Folks attending the event will also be able to meet with Lead Writer Charles Boyd and various members of the SWTOR development team to discuss the upcoming expansion and more.

Full details on the event are below, but please note that if you’re planning on attending you are encouraged to pre-register to get priority access by following this handy link.
