Critical Missions in Space
Traveling through space is an exciting part of the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ experience. Not only will you navigate the stars to visit new planets, but you can also choose to undertake critical missions in the depths of space where you'll maneuver through chaotic asteroid fields, blast enemy fighters, and engage in epic, large-scale fleet battles reminiscent of those from the classic Star Wars™ films.
In keeping with the original Star Wars films, the Space Combat system in Star Wars: The Old Republic is designed to make travel times literally fly-by, while combat runs and space battles put you in the pilot's seat for a fast-paced and highly cinematic experience. Like Luke Skywalker in the original assault on the Death Star, you'll also discover that even a lone starship can change the course of galactic history.
Completing your Objectives
Whether undertaking faction-based missions involving epic space battles or simply cruising through one of the galaxy's "hot spots", the Space Combat experience drops your starship right into the action. You'll be put on a direct course towards your objective and you'll maneuver your ship through obstacles and deal with enemies that cross your path. It's truly a 'combat' experience.
Your final objective in the mission could be escorting a friendly shuttle to safety or even destroying an enemy battle cruiser. As your character's level increases, you'll be challenged with more difficult and more complex space combat missions, and the stakes will only get higher. By succeeding in these missions, you'll obtain rewards that will be useful in other aspects of the gameplay experience.
Exploring the Galaxy
As your Star Wars: The Old Republic saga unfolds, you'll fly through scenarios in all corners of the galaxy. From braving the galaxy's most dangerous asteroid belt to taking part in a large-scale showdown over an embattled ice world, you'll experience a large variety of missions in a large variety of environments.
