BioWare announce Ship Droid mini-game

It’s been an interesting weekend for releases of SWTOR information and one of the most interesting is today’s announcement of the Ship Droid mini-game in the upcoming 1.2 update.

Ok, not really as it’s an April Fool’s joke, but they’ve certainly gone to some trouble for a prank, check it out:

And even some inter-droid romance:

Have a look at the videos for yourself . I have to admit that I didn’t initially realise this was an April Fool’s prank, as I’m one of the 1% who love my ship droid and his inane comments. Maybe this will be implemented one day…

Over to you: did you enjoy BioWare’s attempt to make fools of us?

Language localization in SWTOR: the joke’s on you

On April 1st,  you obviously know what that means:  April Fools day.

Last year we got the Sarlacc Enforcer update –  this year we got an update over the localization of Star Wars: The Old Republic into Shyriiwook, the native tongue of the Wookies. This faux update includes three videos of the Shyriiwook version of SWTOR and a new HUD skin that is pretty much a fur ball. Other than this small April Fool’s joke no real content was posted to the site by Bioware, and as usual half the community took the joke and the other half are outraged that the release date wasn’t revealed.

No matter which side of this argument you’re on, be sure to check out the funny videos and HUD skin here on SWTOR’s official site.

I personally like these funny updates, the game will drop when Bioware and Lucas Arts decide it’s ready, so enjoy this update and may the Force be with you.
