HoloNet Links #204
Gamescom is currently going on now through the 10th of August. On the 5th, EA had its press conference and James Ohlen was on stage to address the audience for SWTOR’s part of the press conference. We found out that if players subscribe before August 10th, they will receive Niko Okarr as a companion. We also got to view a new in-game trailer entitled, “Become the Outlander.”
Now let’s get into this week’s links after the Jump…
- New Companion offer extended & new trailer
As I mentioned earlier, the offer to get the companion Niko Okarr has been extended. Be sure to subscribe before August 10th. If you are curious about this reward for subscribing and others, click the following link to the rewards section of the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion.
Check the new trailer, Become the Outlander
- SWTOR Community on EA Press Conference
One of the first write ups, I saw, was on TOR Community. They outlined the Old Republic part of the EA press conference. The article explains the length of time James Ohlen was on stage as being short. It is unfortunate that EA doesn’t allow SWTOR a bigger presence, but at least they were there at Gamescom. The lights dimmed and the trailer was shown. The TOR Community article also has the dialogue all typed out from the trailer. Great job getting this inform, trailer and dialog out to the SWTOR community. Be sure you have TOR Community saved in your bookmarks/favorites.
Okay, now we head the press conference, learned we can still get Nico Okarr via subscription a bit longer and seen the video, what is left? Well, funny you should ask, because Larry Everett has broken down or dissected the new trailer. Wonder about certain characters briefly in the trailer or just didn’t catch every little thing? Larry goes through the entire trailer pointing out these and many other details. So if you are wanting to go deeper in-depth on the new trailer, check out the video below.

- SWTOR Community member’s Dream comes true
One of the more recognizable members of the SWTOR Community now has their own webpage. I am referring to of course Vulkk. The new website is a hub for all of the videos, his gaming stream and other created content from Vulkk. If you are not familiar with Vulkk, he is a dedicated and positive member of the #swtorfamily. He has created several various forms of content relating to SWTOR. He is most recognized for the many videos he has produced over the years. The videos range from lore, play-throughs and guides. This will be a website that I will favorite and visit quite often. Congrats to Vulkk on his new website.
- SWTOR fan video
This week’s fan video comes from YouTube user SplitsGamingChannel. The video is full of plenty in-game footage, but of a different sort. It has several cutscenes with conversation choices you might have wanted to make, but maybe were a bit reluctant to do so. Considering the video is titled SWTOR: Jerk Simulator, you can probably guess what type of comments are being picked. Press play and hear some of those funny comments and comebacks made in cutscenes.
Please let us know if you have a particular link, story, video, or blog related to SWTOR we would love to hear about it! You can send those to us here at Corellian Run Radio and we can place it in a future article. Just email us the links and/or the details for the event at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can also leave any link suggestions in the comments below, or in Corellian Run Radio’s Facebook group. See you next week!
