Fan Friday with Fan Site Kit

Today’s update is a Fan Friday update, including some community art, two bits in the developer corner, a couple of new forum avatars and the Fan Site Kit.

I’ll just be lazy and copy-paste the entire thing:

Welcome to another exciting Fan Friday where we shine the spotlight on talented members of Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ community and share some gems from the Development Team.

This week, we also want to present you with the official Star Wars: The Old Republic Fan Site Kit! We know you’ve been waiting for this, and we think you’ll be impressed.

Be sure to see it all, plus check out the new avatars, and don’t forget to vote in the latest series of polls!

Community Creations

StandAlone has been busy creating some breathtaking Star Wars™ fan art. The three most recent paintings, Ambush, Inevitable Death, and Darth Satus were all created using TOR concept art for costume design inspiration. Fantastic job, StandAlone!

Developer Corner

In the Developer Corner this week, we’re giving you a quick look at some combat effects in Star Wars: The Old Republic, along with a creature render that we think you will appreciate. Be sure to visit the forums to share your thoughts on our progress!

In The Old Republic, every class will have unique and visceral combat abilities. Check out this powerful and destructive Trooper!

This ferocious Rancor, with his dreadful claws and fangs, can easily obliterate any creature that gets within his reach.

Fan Site Kit

Star Wars: The Old Republic is pleased to provide fan site creators with a variety of materials to help build engaging fan sites. The Fan Site Kit includes concept art, high-resolution images, logos, and other legendary pieces of content from The Old Republic!
