Recently in TOR News: Importing Down Under

TOR News: Importing Down Under

Think of this as an episode. We will call it “Recently in TOR News” for now, where we compile a bit of Old Republic news. I do like to keep things short and sweet. So on to the news.

Which class will you play? If you fantasize about Han Solo as a hot chick choose a smuggler. If you want to be the hottest blue skinned thing in the galaxy choose a Twi’lek. Ok, this is getting weird. Head over to IGN and read Who Are You in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Concerned about whether you can or should do your class quests with a friend? TORWars addresses this concern with direct quotes from Damion Schubert himself.

A few things that your smuggler can be: a medic, a marksman and an explosives expert. Check in with TORWars for the list quoted from Georg Zoeller.

Unfortunately not much in the way of interesting gaming news has been released since E3 this year. Fortunately the Old Republic pod casts that we have grown to love are still churning out episodes. Recently: Mos Eisley Radio Episode 47: Crayon Eater, Corellian Run Radio Episode 30: Your Foots Sticking Out!, DarthHater Episode 92: Consular Highlights, TOROCast Episode 114: Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explosions and last but not least Alan Shot First invites you to discuss the class trailers at the Mos Eisley Radio forums.

At it yet again is TORWars! In another article this week they discuss loot, inventory space, the lack of an appearance tab, gear customization and the social point system.

Jedi Guardian

Since Bioware opened up pre-orders at about 3:00AM eastern on July 21st (correct me if the date is wrong) lots of fans have been upset. Canadians couldn’t order the collector’s edition early on and many likely missed out as quantities were limited and the collector’s edition sold out very quickly online (it broke a record for EA). Fans were sent scrambling to individual stores for copies as those stores got their shipments. Australians very quickly found out that they would not be able to purchase the game domestically.

So ever since, Australians have been asking the question, “Can we still play the game if we import our copies?”. The answer is yes! There will be no region locking. In other words, IP addresses from Australia will not be blocked. You might not be able to buy TOR in local stores down under, but you can import the game and play it. Lag might be an issue and you can probably expect rubber banding.

And as I like to say: “in case you missed it”…
