Space Combat Coming to SWTOR?

There is a rumor floating around that was revealed at the Seattle Community Cantina. According to TORWars, a SWTOR Fansite, according to “goodies found on the flash drive, the “Super Secret Space Project” was revealed.”

Currently in SWTOR, there are space missions that you can take that can earn you daily experience and points, but it’s pretty much a mini game that has no real effect on your character (outside of experience gain). Even then, your ship is stuck on rails, and allows very little freedom. People have been clamoring for real-time space combat for years, dating back to the Star Wars: Galaxies days. SWG players finally got their update, but will SWTOR fans get theirs soon?

In a video posted by TORWars, we can see what seems to be new space missions and massive combat. What we can’t tell is if this is a major content patch or if it’s just additional space missions similar to those that already exist. What do you think?

    The speculation is Space PvP or Space Operations (Raids). While space PvP would be epic, the video seems to be an on rails shooter b/c of the blaster bolts tracking targets. We’ll have wait and see.

    On a side note, why do the Republic Capital ships have huge open areas to fall to your death in? Discuss!
