About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'SWG: Jump to Lightspeed' Gets New Content

Just six weeks after a very successful launch, the developers of Star Wars Galaxies have announced that over 30 new missions have been added to Jump to Lightspeed, the game’s new space component. Also announced is the addition of another multi-passenger ship to the already over 20 craft in game, the M22-T Krayt Gunship. With the M22-T, Privateers Pilots, the Han Solos of the sky are now able to enter battle with a friend acting as a defensive gunner. Read more for details ...

“Players are enjoying crafting and owning the iconic craft like the X-Wings and the TIE fighters, but they also have a chance to pilot ships like the M22-T that are brand new to the Star Wars Universe,” says Haden Blackman, LucasArts producer.

Players adventuring on the ground are also being rewarded with a new in-game loot system. Rewards for defeating enemies include special skill enhancements, over 20 new pieces of artwork, including Darth Vader and Han Solo “Wanted!” posters. And work continues on the Combat Upgrade, a project that will take the combat of Star Wars Galaxies to the next level of engaging fun.

And for anyone who is interested in creating their own saga in the Star Wars universe (including all the action of Jump to Lightspeed), starting December 17, 2004, FilePlanet.com will host a 10 day free trial.
