BioWare Offers a Peek at SWTOR E3 Content, a New Comic and Advanced Classes

By Stacy Jones -

There's little doubt that Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) will be one of the more anticipated titles at E3 2011. But what does BioWare have in store for fans at this year's E3 gaming convention? Today's update sheds a little light on what the developer has planned for the event and offers a sneak peek at what fans can expect to see during this year's EA press conference and it involves a new threat that has yet to be revealed on the planet of Belsavis.

The last two years have yielded a new CG cinematic trailer and there's no reason to think that this year will be any different. If you're not attending E3 this year, you can still catch the press conference on Spike TV or via live stream on EA.com, on Monday, June 6th at 12:30PM PDT for all the SWTOR goodness.

Also in this week's update is a freshly revamped Advanced Classes page that will allow fans to explore the many advancement options for each of the SWTOR classes. A new developer blog from Principal Lead Combat Designer Georg Zoeller has also been posted that details the latest changes to the Advanced Class system.

Lastly, BioWare revealed a new five-part comic series from Darkhorse Comics. The comic, The Lost Suns, explores the cease-fire between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Issue one of Star Wars: The Old Republic - The Lost Suns will be available to fans in comic shops on June 8th. To learn more about the comic, check out this week's Q&A with the comic's writer and BioWare Senior Writer Alexander Freed.
