Returning to Taris [Dev Dispatch 26/02/2010]

Discussion in 'Holonet Chat' started by Darth Derriphan, Feb 26, 2010.

  1. This weeks update sees the release of the a new Developers Dispatch regarding the return to the once beautiful ecumenopolis Taris that some of you may have fond memories of from the original Knights of the Old Republic.

    As was revealed in the planets announcement Taris is now a very different world than it once was. An apocalyptic swamp, Taris now looks like something that would fit better within the Fallout game franchise that a Star Wars game.

    Even though the landscape is now very different there are still reminders of what the planet used to be dotted around, not all of them friendly.

    In the Dev blog you'll see the Rakghouls in action as well as get some insights on the planets environment and creation from Lead Designer James Ohlen, Principal writer Drew Karpyshyn, Senior world designer Scott Carpenter and and Principal Lead Animator Mark How.
