BioWare Reveals SWTOR's HK-51 Assassination Droid Companion Trailer

Posted Mon, Jul 16, 2012 by Martuk

If your Star Wars: The Old Republic companion C2-N2 isn’t driving you nuts enough on your ship with his constant tampering with your food supply and spraying of Alderaanian Nectar-based air fresheners, why not add another mechanical abomination to the mix? Luckily, this one just might be a bit cooler than that other nagging bucket of bolts, especially if he’s willing to carry out a kill order on it. HK-51 has been revealed, and while he’s not our famed favorite HK-47, he may provide a similar personality to your crew.

Buried deep beneath the icy surface of Belsavis rests an army of the deadliest, most feared machines in the known galaxy. Thought to have been lost when an Imperial freighter was destroyed, they have recently been rediscovered by a group of renegade Sith Lords. Now both the Sith Empire and Galactic Republic seek to control these dangerous weapons for themselves. Those who are brave enough to venture into the wreckage will emerge with a powerful new ally.

HK-51 will be available to recruit as an ally in the "very near future", so stay tuned and we'll update you when more details are available. Check out the full HK-51 trailer on the Star Wars: The Old Republic website.
