Yes indeedy, the Star Wars: The Old Republic Friday Update is yet another planet reveal! The latest addition of Voss brings the current planet count to an even dozen, and some believe there are still more incoming. We shall see. For now, we have Voss, claimed to be a “never-before-seen” planet in the Star Wars universe, though apparently an entry on Wookieepedia has existed for it before this. I personally think it’s admirable that Bioware is taking an opportunity like this to expand upon little-known places that are in the lore. There must be a ton of other planets like this in the Star Wars universe, giving them plenty to work with when it comes to providing us more worlds to explore.
Speaking of exploring, Voss is shaping up to be a pretty mysterious planet by the looks of it. There’s no telling right now how this conflict will play out in-game, but when I read about the tech-savvy Gormaks and and Force sensitive Voss Mystics, all I could think about was faction rep grinding. Arghhh. Nevertheless, I’m quite intrigued and it’s nice to know that Bioware has the real intent to leave their mark on Star Wars history, with the introduction of fresh and meaningful lore into the mythos.
In other words, this announcement makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
