Today marks the beginning of a new video series, “Choose Your Side.” The premiere video goes in-depth into the Jedi Knight and Bounty Hunter classes, focusing on their best tactics to use against one another. Not only that, but the video is also a good introduction to both characters in both story and combat functions. We also get a lot of new gameplay footage for each class, taken from scenes throughout the game. To see it for yourself, watch the video here.

If I feel like the Bioware has been jumping from one convention to the next in the last couple months, I can only imagine how it is for the developers – particularly the ones who seem to be at all of the conventions. We already have another con upon us: Eurogamer Expo 2011 in London, September 22 to 25. Bioware promises hands-on gameplay of the Origin Worlds and some PvP. In addition to the details on the expo, we also have a new Studio Insider and this month’s Community Q&A.

Corellian Runners, we have quite an update today. In addition to the obligatory PAX Highlights video, Senior Writer Alexander Freed explains the goals and strengths of writing in the Star Wars universe.

Let’s start the update there, shall we?

More Friday Update and Comments after the jump. Continue reading »

To those of us who followed the Gamescom and PAX news at home, the two events may seem like one huge event. To the lucky people who got to go to either one, however, the two shows have produced very different memories. Today, we get a taste of what it was like to check out The Old Republic at GamesCom, full of cosplayers, T-shirt throwing, and German fans.

It seems a bit strange that we didn’t also get the PAX highlights video, but perhaps we’ll have that soon. Either way, while we didn’t get a release date at either event, we get one step closer to playing SWTOR every day.

A look at the Star Wars Insider Revan novel excerpt, focusing on how Revan’s character will be handled in SWTOR and the novel.

This article contains SPOILERS for the 2003 game Knights of the Old Republic.

Who is Revan? Everyone who has played KotOR (Knights of the Old Republic) has a different answer to that question. Like with Commander Shepard in Mass Effect and the Hero of Ferelden and Hawke in the Dragon Age games, Bioware’s interactive dialogue system lets the players define Revan in any way they please. How, then, can the non-interactive Revan novel satisfy every fan of KotOR? How can one defined character of a book convey the infinite possibilities of Revan? With the first excerpt of the Revan novel in Star Wars Insider magazine, perhaps our questions can be answered.
