Just this week, a long-running Star Wars: The Old Republic
fan-made website mentioned that it was shutting down
, one among many that have come and gone since the launch of SWTOR
. I was just mentioning the other day to a friend how Darth Hater pretty much faded into nothing and how many of the old fan-shows and websites no longer exist. It seems to be a rare thing for creators to make content since the launch of the game, and it’s even rarer for them to have created it before
the game launched.
And now SWTOR-RP is shutting down, one of the last sites to have been reporting on SWTOR for over seven years. I know this because I was one of the three founders, and now the three of us remaining have decided it’s time to move on and let the site go.
So where does a SWTOR fan get content now? Are there still fansites that report on the latest news coming from BioWare Austin? I can hear Massively OP readers now: “Larry, your content is great and all, but I need more than a thousand words in Hyperspace Beacon every week.” And I hear you; I need more than that, too. So that’s why I’ve compiled another list of 10 podcasts, YouTube channels, and websites where I get my SWTOR information.
When the developers of Star Wars: The Old Republic
told us they were going to focus on more group content for Knights of the Eternal Throne
, many players suspected new raids (or operations) were coming. They were right! Yesterday, BioWare
allowed its cadre of “influencers” to reveal what the first boss in the upcoming Gods of War operation looks like.
We have already dived deep into some of the other aspects of the upcoming update, including the return of a couple of companions and being able to switch factions in the new daily area. However, the important details of the operation have been absent until now.
Fan sites released a handful of videos practically giving everything away. Although they did shy away from speaking about the exact details of the fight with the first god of Iokath called Tyth, we can see the whole veteran-mode fight in Dulfy‘s video. Likewise, SWTOR Central and Kid Lee give their impressions of the battle and Corellian Run, and Bad Feeling Podcast give us a couple of fun trailers. Check out what’s public down below!
