Belsavis An Ancient Rakatan prisonstead housing the most voltile criminals in the galaxy If you haven’t seen Derriphans post already on Fridays update on the newest planet reveal of Belsavis, click here to check it out! A planet that is a mystery to some, with is sheet of white ice engulfing the planet there are jungle rifts where ice does not exist due to the volcanic activity. At a glance we see the planets circular volcanic areas in numbers, connected with a small crevice cut into the snow between each area giving us the idea that this planet may be about exploration as well as the Republic enforced Rakatan prison. At the forefront in one of these volcanic rifts we see what appears to be a ship landing area or similar suggesting that when travelling to Belsavis you’ll be located close to the prison or other abandoned / occupied buildings, as the screenshots seem to point there is more than one main building. In one of the screen shots it seems apparent that the Rakatan Prison is build in a semi-circle and cut deep into the rock face, possibly underground, to the maze of corridors of the prisons network. As SW:TOR has provided the information that the Galactic Republic have been using this for quite some time, with the Sith Empires ears eventually sinking its intelligence into where the planet was located, an all out war between the two factions has started leading to chaos around the prison. Could this suggest a PvP area for players to engage each other? Perhaps this prison alludes itself to a group style mission, having the most dangerous of alien species and growing evil within its bowls to encounter. The Sith Empire has learned that Sith Lords have been also imprisoned and have added to their agenda to rescue and release the captives of their kind but the Republic is trying to return the prisons systems to their previous state leaving those dangerous to the Galaxy locked inside.No doubt we can be expected to see Rakatan lore and history, as well as their technology. With a mix of stunning graphics from the green lush volcanic rifts to the rocky cold cliff face of ice sprawling into the distance, maybe suggests more than what it seems. The question remains to be asked, what have these Ancient Rakatan power mongers left behind? Perhaps some things are not meant to be unleashed... or maybe they already have!
