SWG Producer's Letter On "Trials" Expansion

Posted Thu, Sep 01, 2005 by Ethec

SWG producer Grant McDaniel brought back gamers' questions from Leipzig on the upcoming "Trials of Obi-Wan" expansion.

He won't be confronting sticky issues like why the Death Star had to circle Yavin to blow up its 4th moon. Dood, it blows up planets, and if Yavin is a gas giant, couldn't the DS just fire through it to bring enough widespread destruction on Yavin 4 to undermine the rebel cause. Don't get me started! Nothing like good Hollywood, though.

1. Is this a Jedi expansion?
Absolutely not. This expansion has content and adventures for all types of Star Wars Galaxies players.
2. I'm not a Jedi...so is there any reason for me to obtain the Trials of Obi-Wan Expansion?
Of course. All players will be able to converse with Obi-Wan and help him on his quests. Additionally, there will be many other quests as well as other reasons to explore the planet of Mustafar. And, the planet itself is so completely unique when compared to the rest of the planets in our game, that I think many people will just enjoy exploring and adventuring anywhere they can. (A lot more than Anakin!)
3. Trials of Obi-Wan: Will there be a new playable species? How about new NPC species?
We did not add any new playable species. However, Mustafar is home to two new native NPC species that you will find in the expansion (more on them later).
