SWTOR Facebook - Beautiful Alderaan stands ready for battle
The Star Wars: The Old Republic
Facebook page has a new image gallery
featuring screenshots of Alderaan and Hoth. Mike Harnisch, Senior Environment Artist for BioWare, says the images “illustrate how we use color, lighting, and composition to help tell the expansive, immersive stories in our groundbreaking game.”
The images of Alderaan help to reinforce the story of the Alderaan Civil War with one image featuring a metaphorical broken bridge. The Hoth images are challenging because they artists want to put their own touch on the world, yet they have to balance that against the ideas players already have from The Empire Strikes Back
, and the numerous other games where Hoth has been featured.
As you blast your way through the exciting content of SWTOR, don’t forget to stop and check the amazing visuals the Art team has made. This is a talented group of artists and they have shared their talents with us.
