For most of us, Alderaan is just that place that is so tragically destroyed in the first Star Wars movie–you know, the one that inspires ol’ Ben Kenobi to start talking about those millions of voices what were suddenly silenced. But thanks to BioWare and their Star Wars: The Old Republic, we’re getting a new look at the doomed planet.
Now it’s a little sadder, actually, getting a glimpse of what was. What will it be like to explore the surface of a planet you know will eventually poof in a spectacular display of cruelty? Guess we won’t be getting too attached to anything.
I’m thinking that’s going to be a little difficult, though. At least I’ll be waiting a while for the impending sadness; BioWare’s MMO effort isn’t scheduled for release any time in the near future.
