It's Friday once again and that means that it's time for another BioWare update for Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR). This week brings a trio of updates starting with a new video from the recent Fan Site Summit held at BioWare's Austin, TX studio in April. The video reflects on the event and what attendees thought of their hands on time with SWTOR.
Part two of this week's update is a new Fan Friday feature, which highlights some of the SWTOR fan art from the community and a new Fan Site Spotlight featuring SWTOR Life with a brief Q&A with Serge “Mikto” Stanarevic about the site.
The Fan Friday update also confirmed the 2011 events that BioWare and LucasArts will be showing off SWTOR at. Fans can look forward to seeing the Star Wars-based MMORPG at San Diego Comic Con, GamesCom, Penny Arcade Expo, EuroGamer, New York Comic Con, Paris Games Week, and DreamHack.
The last part of this week's update is all about sound. Audio Designer Scott Morton provides some insight into the sounds of combat and the design that goes into making the audio of SWTOR immersive and a key element to the gaming world. Morton details the creation process from conception to completion and offers a few videos to show how the sounds of the game change as they are refined.
Senior Concept Artist Clint Young also returns this week to answer more questions about the art design for SWTOR. Check it out in this week's Studio Insider.
