“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.
