IGN has updated their beta hub with an article on Dark/Light side choices and how it impacts gear. Nick Kolan discusses how gear can be obtained based on your morality score. Kolan writes:
I noticed that for every Dark side piece in the Commendations store there was a light side piece with equivalent stats. Rather than risk making one side more or less appealing for the hardcore gamer because of a stat imbalance, the difference will be in the way it looks. Republic-side Jedi who follow the dark path will, for instance, be able to obtain Luke Skywalker’s uniform from Return of the Jedi.
More Morality, the Gear, the Grind and Comments after the jump.
