Star Wars combat is quick and deadly. Pretty much all the weapons are insta-kill from anything closer than a near-miss.

How is standing there, with torrents of blaster bolts flooding through targets, feel like Star Wars?

The tutorial is run by Stormtroopers, who teach you how to properly aim.

yeah yeah, no stormtroopers 3000 years in the past, don't ruin my joke.


And I wouldn't dream of it!

All Iím saying is that with all the laser blast flying all over the place and the light saber combat. Itís Star Wars. And no you wonít be killing things quickly and deadly. That would defeat the whole purpose of a challenge.

If you like the Star Wars universe as you say, then I have no doubt that you are going to like the game. Since I started playing the beta I have not put it down. Itís been that much fun. I have tried out several classes to see which one I like the best.

I canít go into details about the beta; we are still restricted under the NDA. So sorry, I canít reveal too much. I hope you do get in. If you do, look me up in game Ilyra. Republic Side if you play.
