There. That wasn’t so hard, was it BioWare? That’s all I needed — my own ship-slash-player-housing. And you, wonder of wonders, delivered. From IGN UK:
Every player, regardless of their chosen class, will get their own starship to command across the galaxy.
SWEET. Oh, there’s more?
BioWare has created a robust customization package so that you can fully trick out your ship with premade gear sets or your own hand-picked items. Though BioWare isn’t showing off the ships in action just yet, they assure us that there will be thousands of different variations so that each person can feel as if they have a unique vessel.
First of all, who doesn’t like the word “robust”? It always sends a tingle down my spine: robust. And second, we get to trick out our own ships? Yes, please, and don’t stop the love!
Of course, we don’t know if this is external customization, housing-like customization, or what, and we have no idea yet if the ships are just for transportation/RP/story, or if you can actually fly and fight in them.
But this is a good, good start to the number one thing I was hoping we’d hear this year. It’s just not Star Wars without the first part of that name, and a ground-only MMO would feel like a lobotomized version of what it could become.
Anyway, this left me smiling today. How about you?
