New SWG Pre-Order Bonuses

Posted Mon, Sep 26, 2005 by Ethec

Re-enact your second favorite Jabba the Hutt scene.
That's right: Jabba's 8-player transport skiff (seen alongside the sailbarge in Episode V) is the first half of your bonus for preordering the SWG November expansion "Trials of Obi-Wan." Not as cool, but also a reward: a giant "lava flea" that you can ride around. I wonder if "lava tick" mothers feel compelled to check their offspring for Jedi when they come in from playing outside.

" Pre-Order Trials of Obi-Wan and you will get the exclusive 8-Player Transport Skiff as you bonus gift included with the digital download. Players who pre-order will receive in-game:

  • The Transport Skiff: An exclusive 8-player vehicle, the only 8-player vehicle and the fastest multiplayer vehicle in the galaxy, as seen below. Players will be given one per account and this item is not tradable. You will want to get this awesome new skiff! ...
  • The Lava Flea: This unique Mustafarian Mount as shown below. Players will be given one per account and this item is tradable!
  • Players who order the Trials of Obi-Wan will also receive 3 additional vehicle storage slots in their datapad.
  • Plus, there is another very cool Purchase Bonus Item, all players who purchase the Trials of Obi-Wan will also receive a brand new style of player house that can also be used as a Guild Hall that we will be revealing soon! You will be totally stunned when you see it!"
