PLAYABLE TOGRUTAS CONFIRMED FOR SWTOR UPDATE 3.3

Jul 18, 2015 by

PLAY SWTOR FOR FREETogrutas, the colorful Star Wars race that boasts both head tails and hollow horns, will become available to play when Star Wars: The Old Republic opens the doors to Update 3.3 next week.

BioWare confirmed the species’ addition to the playable roster on the official forums: “Togruta will be in Game Update 3.3 on Tuesday! We are pretty excited for all of you to get your hands on the new playable species. One thing that sets Togruta apart from other species is that, due to their montrals, any item worn in your head slot will be automatically hidden. By introducing a new playable species which hides its head slot, this gives us the potential to introduce other species down the line who have ‘head things going on.’”

While the studio wasn’t making it a secret that Togrutas were next for a player race, it was previously uncertain whether or not the creatures would be done in time for the July update.

STAR CITIZEN’S LESNICK PROMISES ‘INCREDIBLE PROGRESS’ AND ADDRESSES CONCERNS

Jul 18, 2015 by

The war of words between developer Derek Smart and Star Citizen isn’t over yet. A recent livestream for a German fan channel saw director of community engagement Ben Lesnick addressing fans not just on the future of the game but on the recent controversy and the issue of refunds. Lesnick specifically stated that this sort of skepticism is why the game went to a crowdfunding platform and that supporters will see incredible progress in the coming weeks.

Lesnick also stressed that everyone is welcome to his or her opinions and that Smart is hardly the first (nor likely the last) person to raise similar concerns regarding the ambition and scope of the game. It was also mentioned in passing that the next planned update to the game’s test servers will likely be delayed to next week.

It should be noted that Lesnick’s interview was conducted before Smart’s most recent demands were published.
