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.

I’m a little surprised that people still play this failure…

There actually was alot of good stuff to this, just to much little bad stuff overwelmed it. Every now and then I get the irge to get back in a play it for a month. I usually have a decent time, but in the end, the little stuff kills it, and my irge goes away. I’ll probably go for another month in a month or two. Cheaper than buying a whole new game.

Dog’s right.

The game wasn’t the WoW killer EA was hoping for, but it found an audience and it is still fairly decently engaging despite it’s flaws.

I find it sad that just because something has flaws it’s immediately cast aside by the community at large; at least that’s what I would expect but Halo and CoD continue onward. . . .

Still playing, still very happy with it, and not having any second thoughts. That so many people call it a failure puzzles me greatly.
