    The Planets of The Old Republic MMO

    We've got a fairly decent collection of planets - the obvious ones; Taris, Tatooine, Korriban, Tython, Coruscant, and a few interesting ones; Alderaan, Ord Mantell, Hutta, Balmorra and Drommund Kaas and the sharply interesting one; Belsavis.

    That's eleven planets, so we're due at least one more as no self-respecting game will choose an odd-number of systems.

    Where the kriff is Corellia? :p

    Seriously great choice of planets that we knew we would get and new ones. I doubt we get to go to Corellia as I would love to do though.

    I saw that Belsavis had been added earlier today. Holy crap, I thought this couldn't get any more awesome. :D

    Great, now I have to go find a copy of Children of the Jedi somewhere to brush up on my Belsavisian knowledge.

    Awesome concept though. Especially if there's mind-traps.

    I'm starting to get pretty excited about this - it seems that the planets are HUGE and there will be lots to explore. :D

    I expect a lot of unmarked tombs and other interesting locals with this addition.

    I'm looking forward to exploring Dromund Kaas. Remote jungle world with lots of lightning. Awesome.

    Yep, if it's one thing Star Wars fans love to death, it's lightning.

    Anyone got any thoughts on this new planet known as 'Voss' and the two new 'species' that occupy it?

    The screen shots sure look nicely different to other planets in the game. Autumn woodland with outcrops of bare rock. I'm gonna enjoy walking around that planet.

    From looking at the screen shots it reminds me of a Korriban and Datoonie hybrid.

    Ugh. That's all I can say to it. But the scenario is nominally interesting. So who won the Battle of Hoth? Sith? Republic?

    It's neatly placed between the Unknown Regions and Hydian Way, being...

    Based on this I assume the Republic lost:

    One of the most remote and lifeless planets in the known galaxy, Hoth was of no real interest to the Republic until it became the site of a devastating military defeat.

    I don't know what it is about the middle of may and geeking out about Star Wars. :p The addition of Hoth is awesome!

    The addition of Hoth is still a good thing, even if it is pretty "useless".

    Apparently the Aurebesh on the page mentions a Chiss scout base... Oooooh. That's interesting. Especially as Darth Malgus is busy during the Cold War conquering swathes of the Unknown Regions... I wonder what's going on there?

    It's certainly a different twist on the ice planet that the movies never introduced. Capital Shipgraveyard...okay then.

    At least we have a good three thousand seven hundred years before any one else visits the system, which is always helpful. [face_laugh]
