Rumor: SWTOR E3 information leaked on official website

BioWare accidentally revealed its Star Wars: The Old Republic announcement for E3 this weekend, and — spoiler alert — this could be a game changer.

The leaked page, which began, “A man can have anything… if he’s willing to sacrifice everything,” tells the players about a shake-up that will hit the primary storyline in October. It mentions a new major faction in the galaxy: the Empire of Zakuul. It also mentions that our characters are now called “Outlander, veteran of the Great Galactic War,” suggesting that we’re no longer a part of the Sith Empire or the Galactic Republic.

The next biggest reveal for players involved the release date and price of this expansion. According to the leaks, the expansion will be free for everyone who subscribes on October 27th, and those who subscribe between July 31st and October 19th will gain early access as well as special perks based off when they subscribed.

Officially, BioWare has said nothing about these leaks, but do look for more information on Tuesday along with a rumored CGI trailer from E3.

Despite my knock on player numbers being a bit on the hyperbole side, it’s looking like was right.
Don’t worry; apology accepted.

Kodimus factions in swtor are currently just for lore purpose and starfighter’ ships looks, nothing else – there’s no RvR.
Besides, given how certain storylines of the vanilla game end (yes, vanilla one!), it makes perfect sense to go past the republic/empire dicotomy – it’s much more complicated than that and both sides are “grey”, not black and white.
In other words, “nice try” xD

woolydub Tsk, tsk. Don’t you know that the “zakuul” read from right to left? The proper name is “luukaz”.
I’ll leave figuring out the common English mispronunciation as an exercise for the reader.

I am so confident this was done on purpose. Leaks like that, structured like that. Come on, Bioware. You just did the best possible PR campaign imaginable. Rise up the Hype again, remind the players who were living under a stone about the special E3 date for SWTOR (today) and tease the fans (fanbois too!) with a few pictures and an accidentally published page.

I think this expansion will be huge compared to the so far released content updates and the previous 2 expansions. Something big is coming.
It’s just a little troublesome that we have no clue about EndGame yet.

P.S. Yes, I am a huge fanboi of Star Wars and SWTOR in particular. Been following the game since before the website was launched and still enjoy it :)))

Outlander? Isn’t that the chick who traveled through time and started having sex with men in skirts?

Yeah, karma’s going to bite me in the butt for that one.
