Return to Taris and walk the Ruins, if you dare.

The Old RepublicBioware and LucasArts released a video today, talking about the next planet they are exploring; Taris!  In fact Taris has been left largely alone since we’ve seen it last when Malak blasted it to bedrock in the Kotor game.  You will witness the planet in ruins, with Rakgouls running rampant.  Don’t forget to checkout the video here

Once home to a sprawling planet-wide city, Taris was razed long ago by the Sith Lord Darth Malak while seeking to eliminate the Jedi Knight Bastila Shan. Now, a post-apocalyptic Taris is being realized in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. After 300 years, Republic and Jedi leaders are moving forward with the efforts at colonization.

Watch insights from James Ohlen, Drew Karpyshyn, Scott Carpenter, and Mark How about the new environments – and adventures – awaiting players in our latest Developer Dispatch: Returning to Taris!
