Hello everyone!

Today we published another interview-styled article. This time we sat down with our Art Director to talk about what it was like bringing Onderon into SWTOR. If you would like to give it a read, it can be found here.

SWTOR art is the best. Looking forward to seeing Onderon in-game. It was my favorite planet in KOTOR 2.

It was interesting read, canīt wait to see how Onderon will be during the expansion. I also wonder if we might see some neat KoTOR 2 references?

Hooray! Good choice for a planet imo, can't wait to explore it.

Also fun to see Dxun return. Or is it another moon? Either way, good stuff.

Its fascinating to hear the developers talk about how their work is done behind-the-scenes as well as their inspirations, the entire process is very interesting to read about. I'm glad these types of posts are being made as it gives us a glimpse into how the concept art shapes the gameplay.

Don't forget Tales of the Jedi references too! And I'm sure we'll get a lot of them in codex entries if not mentions during dialogue. Their track record shows they care deeply about the rich history of Star Wars since they always include references to previous works, Ossus has Tales of the Jedi/Dark Empire references and Dantooine has Tales of the Jedi, and KOTOR 1/KOTOR 2 references. I'm looking forward to reading in-game about things like Nadd, the Beast Wars, etc.

Why does this team never mention KOTOR2? It's like it didn't exist.

They literally mention it in the first paragraph of this article, and they have been referencing it since they announced Onderon.
