(Going to post this here so maybe someone can clarify this )

Hall Hood says in the video: "Yeah, the story of the RotHC is a direct continuation of the player's story that was begun in the main game." I thought there was not going to be anything related to the continuation of your character's Story, or am I missing something here?

There won't be class specific quests, however, all those various class stories are being brought together (remember the "Avengers" comment).

Looks incredible.

Is that a mission involving jumping onto a moving skycar on Nar Shaddaa?
Aiming a gun on Makeb?

Thanks Courtney. Yup. These are the type of things we need to see to get us excited about Makeb; namely an interesting storyline and creative nuances that impact that story. The planets atmosphere and terrain negates a typical SW invasion force? Hmm... intriguing. The Hutts... seem to do their homework to say the least.

Now, since leveling will be the key component of Makeb, story is key. More details on changes relative to that would be great. Especially anything regarding game play. Keep it up! I'm looking forward to it!

People just think it's a new planet. It's more than that. This game has been out for over a year and although new daily areas and such have been created, an entire new leveling planet has not. This doesn't just mean a new area, this means a new area with new technology they haven't had access to before. As you can see, cannons, waterfalls (although they did use waterfalls before, these look a lot better). Looks like an awesome planet, I hope we aren't just leveling here - PUT SOME ENDGAME CONTENT IN TOO!

Couldn't have put it better myself , there will be daily end-game content on the planet and heroics too. I love the idea of zooming down to Makeb from space , also as someone else pointed out jumping on a moving vehicle ? :O

Fantastic great video too , keep up the great work guys and gals.

Cheers,
