Star Wars: The Old Republic: Taun Tauns Headed to SWTOR

BillMurphyBillMurphy Managing EditorBerea, OHPosts: 2,360MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Our friends over at Dulfy.net are reporting that Taun Taun mount images are circulating around San Diego Comic Con right now. Attendees of the event's little SWTOR setup are receiving a flash-drive with images showing players riding the iconic mounts.

image

The Flash-drive also had a bunch of other assets pertaining to upcoming 2.3 and 2.4 content for SWTOR, including views of the new flashpoint and of the PVP arena set on Tatooine.


Thanks to Dulfy.Net for sharing!

    Indeed Taun Taun's are back but players won't be coming back to ride them.

    A mount?

     

    I thought mounts were for games with actual worlds?

     

    Just look at the background of the screenshot. They include an endless bliss of water to spark the imagination of, "what can I find out there?" Too bad screenshots don't pick up invisible walls...  then people will understand how small and linear this game really is.

    LOLZ Dauzqul, but the screenshot is accurate of gameplay. - empty.

    Wonder how much they will charge for this.

    Every single item in cartel packs are avilable on the GTN. So nope you don't need to spend any real life cash to get it. I would understand your complaints about these fluff items if real cash was the only way to get it.

    SWTOR was really fun. I enjoyed it for a while. What killed it for me was the daily quests. That's why I left World of Warcraft. If they found a way to make end game more fun(in any game) instead of just grinding non stop, i'd probably come back.

     

    Welcome to max level.

    Time to grind reputation.

    Time to grind commendations.

    You have left the game!

    Well, this just might save the whole game...  /rolls eyes

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

  • Ramonski7Ramonski7 Aurora, ILPosts: 2,656Member Uncommon
    I'll only come back if I can slice it open to log out inside it's smelly guts for for a exp bonus. And when log back in it will be as good as new! Just to repeat the process. If I can't do that I don't want one nor would I come back.

    well, that does look pretty cool. Debating whether to resub before ARR comes out.

    NICE! I didn't notice. They know the game is so bad they put in fake backgrounds to make it seem like a real mmo instead of a rat maze with quests.

    Even if you could go in that water, the whole thing is about shin deep all the way across...

    If you look closely that actually looks like Ord Mantell and you can indeed go to that island through the water to do 2 Heroic  2 quests.

    They should fix the Space Combat, that's the only chance to get some extra players

    I have been unsubbed from SWTOR for awhile, but I still remember the excitement leading up to launch.  By the Force, what happened?

    Original SWG had a devoted following.  Then they destroyed their own creation. They tried again with one of the greatest IP in world history.  With SWTOR had the name and reputation of Bioware behind the work.  Now it is in the Cash Shop Masquerading As A Game death spiral.

    It is like reverse alchemy - turning gold into lead.

    lol, so true, why the heck is there all the water in the game like a kiddie pool. It kills the immersion in a game when they take away things like that.

    SWTOR was doomed to fail from day 1...It is simply too story driven to have much of a lasting effect for a MMO.......This style might work for Dragon Age (even though what happened in DA2?) but it just fails as a MMO.

    Can't think of a game where I was so happy to finally get a mount. So much running back and forth. This world would benefit from being smaller, given the games design.
