The developers for Star Wars: The Old Republic held their Cantina Tour event just outside New York Comic Con last night. To help promote the SWTOR content “Traitor Among the Chiss” coming to the game this fall, BioWare developers as well as favored Star Wars novelist and creator of the Chiss species Timothy Zahn spoke about the newest planetary addition: Copero.
At the NYCC, BioWare Creative Director Charles Boyd mentioned that Zahn was a key consultant in the creation of Copero, a planet located in the Chiss Ascendancy. “It was a fun chance to explore Chiss culture that hasn’t come up in the books yet, like Chiss structures and rituals,” the official SWTOR Twitter account quoted from Zahn at the event. “It’s fun to start theorizing about how the Chiss could have withdrawn from the greater galaxy over time… between the Old Republic and the films, and possibly explore how that happened in a future update.”
