Jedi and Sith alike will be happy to hear that Bioware and EA announced a new story-driven adventure for Star Wars: The Old Republic called Knights of the Fallen Empire.
In Knights of the Fallen Empire, players will take control of a level 60 veteran of the Great Galatic War called the Outlander. The Outlander will be the centre part of what has been called a “personal Star Wars™ story where choices matter and impact outcomes.” All that’s been revealed about the plot so far is that it will involve the creation of a third faction that will threaten the galaxy and the fate of both the Sith and the Jedi alike.
Players will be able to play one of eight class stories which aim to “offer a deeper, more accessible experience purely focused on immersing you in a personal Star Wars story.” Knights of the Fallen will feature an evolving story which will regularly be updated with new chapters.
So far the Star Wars: The Old Republic website has revealed images of two new two new characters. These two characters are Arcann, the Dark Prince who thinks that “Destiny is a Lie” and the Immortal Emperor Valkorion. Players/meatbags will also be able to run into the fan favourite character HK-55.
