What happens in Nar Shaddaa
stays in Nar Shaddaa. How many unique locations can you fit in one one game? Well, according to the developers at BioWare
, one more. Star Wars: The Old Republic
is now up to 14 planets
with the addition of this center for the criminal underworld: Nar Shaddaa. This city planet is the evil twin to Coruscant
in that it is completely covered in city sprawl. Obi Wan called Mos Eisley
a wretched hive of scum and villainy -- which is true -- but when compared to Nar Shaddaa, it is saintly.
Besides being the apex destitute, this is neutral ground for the current war; the Republic and Empire are equally hated. The only war that matters on Nar Shaddaa is the one between the two mob-like corporate giants. On this moon of Hutta, the Hutt Cartel
finds its greatest -- and possibly its only -- rival in all the galaxy: the Exchange
. Where will you fit in this futuristic turf war? Maybe your place is on the side that pays the most credits. But whichever side you choose, neither can be trusted, so trust only in yourself.
It's not just business as usual on Nar Shaddaa. When planning your Star Wars vacation, be sure to stop by the literal world
