SWTOR Friday Update: World of Nar Shaddaa Showcased

Posted Fri, Jul 30, 2010 by Savanja

It is a full Star Wars: The Old Republic Friday update coming out of BioWare today and fans will be pleased to see a little bit of everything. First up, the explorable world of Nar Shaddaa is shown off with video and several screenshots. The vivid city is alive with futuristic appeal and lots of neon that attracts the shady deals in its undercity.

Circling the planet Hutta is its largest moon – Nar Shaddaa, the ultimate corrupt city. Dominated by underworld concerns and owned by the Hutts, this sprawling mass of skyscrapers is considered one of the most dangerous and exciting places in the galaxy, where anything can be had for the right price.

Also in this update, the 8th issue in the Blood of the Empire series is now available. Keep up with the epic comic saga to fill your Star Wars needs before the SWTOR launch! If that isn't quite enough for you, pick up Threat of Peace issue 1 which is now available in print from Dark Horse Comics. Look for that at your fave comic book store or order it online.


I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
