The Old Republic Confirms Same-Sex Romances, New Endgame Content
Star Wars: The Old Republic may be unusual in offering romance options in an MMO, but it’s not enough for BioWare. There must be more romance! Specifically, there must be more same-sex romance. The second State of the Game for SWTOR finally confirms what people have been asking for since game launch: you will soon be able to romance a character of your same gender. The characters in question will be NPCs on Makeb. That’s all the details released so far, but more are promised for the near future.
Other updates promised in the state of the game include improvements to World PvP, character copy for the public test server, and (most importantly) new endgame content for those that have bumped against SWTOR’s level cap. This new content aims to be more diverse than what is currently in the game, with the biggest chunk coming from the Rise Of The Hutt expansion.
