Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker
"The Rise of Skywalker"? Seriously? Is that really the best Disney could come up with?
I hope Rey doesn't turn out to be of the Skywalker bloodline. I really liked VIII's reveal that she had no special heritage. Hopefully "Skywalker" will turn out to be a title or name she assumes. Or maybe it refers to Kylo Ren, who is a Skywalker.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Is it just me, or are the game devs making better Star Wars movies than the movie people?
Apparently, Fallen Order is a pure single-player game, with no micro-transactions. A bold move for EA, we'll see how it pans out.
The trailer feels a little reminiscent of Kyle Katarn and the Jedi Knight games. I liked those games back in the day, so hopefully this one will turn out well.
The Old Republic: Onslaught
No snazzy trailer here, but SWTOR announced that the next expansion will launch in September. The quick feature list is:
- New Storyline
- New Planet - Onderon
- New Planet - Mek-Sha
- New Flashpoint - Corellia
- New Operation - Dxun
- New Species - Nautolan
- New Level Cap - 75
They also announced that they're trying to do some interesting things with gear, including more sets and items which changes your abilities. A little like the old Glyph system in WoW. It should be interesting to see how things turn out.
