The first expansion pack to DICE’s popular Star Wars: Battlefront, Outer Rim, was sure to be a major hit with players, some of whom had decried a certain lack of depth plaguing the original release. Meant to address just that issue, Outer Rim brought tons of new content, including new locations like Jabba the Hutt’s palace and the factories of Sullust. The game has always done a great job in the authenticity department, placing players smack in the middle of the Star Wars universe, and through Outer Rim, that has been taken to a new level. In addition to graphical perfection, the creators of the game have been extremely keen on details, strewing several canon-references over the new locations. Jabba the Hutt’s throne-room is rife with such artifacts. In fact, the room itself is a rather iconic presence in this respect. Jabba’s throne is the centerpiece, but the rancor pit…
There’s an Easter Egg in the new map for Star Wars: Battlefront, Twilight on Hoth. The new map was added with the February update and it gives some hints that EA might have listened to the fans and decided to add tauntauns to the game. Unlike other Easter eggs found in the game, this one is a full size image, which hints that it might mean it’s coming in the game as a mount. It’s probably one of the most asked for items in the game. It’s a frozen, full size render of a Tautaun and one user got this on video so if you haven’t seen it yourself yet, here you go. What do you think? Could it be a sign of things to come? Is it just a little novelty for players who pay close attention while they’re roaming the frigid lands of Hoth?
How cool is this? You know how we live Easter eggs and other little gems in SWTOR. Here we have a Yavin 4 Stronghold goodie you may not have seen yet. Most Star Wars fans are familiar with the iconic scene from Star Wars IV just before they go to attack the Death Star. Have a look and let us know what you think. What other Easter eggs have you discovered in the game?
If you’ve done this mission, did you overlook it? There might be a little hidden easter egg here on this Seeker Droid mission. Derzelaz from Reddit posted a screenshot. It’s edited so you can easily see it here in the top right corner. Do you see it? A golden protocol droid and an astromech droid.
The Fanatical Swordsman has found something really cool that we had to share with you as well. It’s a really great SWTOR Easter Egg. From the author of the post: Recently, I saw a screenshot from the new Manaan content in the SWTOR patch coming up (thanks to Baffle on Twitter). If you’re still unsure of what you’re looking at, it’s lucky for us he is a chemist because he was able to realize: Kolto is caffeine! Ok gaming nerds, how awesome is that? Tell us, have you seen this before? Know of any other great Easter Eggs?
Have you ever noticed that there is a body floating outside the republic fleet? A morbid easter egg in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I saw this first time back in beta, in the same spot, but I could have SWORN it was C2-N2. Wishful thinking, I suppose. As someone who collected frozen corpses in EVE Online, I feel a desperate need to scoop that. I was always wondering why the game told me i couldn’t use my escape pod right now, that must have been the player that discovered this bug on accident while looking for the john.
Just when you feel like game developers have lost their spirit of fun, a group like the team at BioWare comes along and does something neat. In this case, it’s a hidden “Easter egg” in SWTOR’s macrobinocular missions. Old school gamers will get a kick out of this one if you haven’t seen it already. The mission “All The Pieces” has a part you have to jump across moving garbage vehicles and speeders. If you felt some déjà vu going on during this part, there might be a good reason for it. If this part of the quest feels strangely familiar to you, it’s not just you. The mission is actually a reference to the Ord Mantell Junkyard mission in the old N64 game Shadows of the Empire! Here’s a clip of what we’re talking about: And if you missed it in SWTOR, here’s a video of the actual mission:…
