Wow, what a huge day for Star Wars fans. Check that, what a huge YEAR for Star Wars fans. In fact, this might be the single biggest year for Star Wars fans in the history of the franchise since the original trilogy concluded. If you think about it, that statement really isn’t very far off. For the first time in DECADES the story of Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie will be expanded in a way we honestly thought would never happen. Sure, those old books weren’t bad but to see the franchise carried forward in the capable hands of Disney who has done wonders with Marvel, it’s a dream come true.
Add to that the fact that you’ve got Star Wars Battlefront coming in November, a slew of new Star Wars novels including Aftermath which bridges the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens and you’ve got a banner year for Star Wars fans. Bioware has up’d the ante by throwing in an expansion to their hit MMO The Old Republic. I played SWTOR for quite some time and it was a very good game but I eventually moved onto other things. After watching the brilliant trailer for Knights of the Fallen Empire, a free expansion by the way… it might just be time to dust off my lightsaber and see what I’ve been missing all this time. To be honest, the trailer doesn’t quite seem to fit within the context of TOR, but to be fair I haven’t played it since Rise of the Hutt Cartel and the trailer itself does look A-MA-ZING. Check it out for yourself!
