To make things even more exciting Bioware released their own video from the Fan Site Summit reminding us of just how awesome that whole event was. We feel as we made some real friends among other fansite members and watching this video just makes us miss them that much more. Epic music in the video is not helping me stay calm. Seeing all those great people and being reminded of the most exciting two days accompanied by John Williams’ music is just a bit overwhelming.

Studio Insider is also a part of this big Friday update an we have Audio Designer Scott Morton guiding us through the process of creating the perfect mix of music and sound effects to complement the combat experience; in other words we get and in-depth look at how audio enhances the gaming experience including some nice sound samples.
Accompanying the Studio Insider is another community Q&A with questions about art being answered by Senior Concept Artist Clint Young. Next month’s Q&A will be focusing on sound and music and you can ask your questions here. Here’s an interesting excerpt from the Studio Insider:

Q: Was “stylized realism” the first art style BioWare decided on, or were other art styles considered? If so, what were they? – JakeLagerstrom

A: “Stylized Realism” was always the plan for the overall look and feel for the art of The Old Republic. Both LucasArts and BioWare wanted to give the art in SWTOR a style that could be easily recognizable as Star Wars, but really call its own. Many people draw comparisons to the Star Wars: The Clone Wars™ television series; however, being a fan of both the films and the animated series, I like to think that we are both and neither. I recently received a bit of art direction on a concept piece I was working on that simply stated “ya know, make it ‘Old Republic’y’.”

Last, but not least are some concept art and fan made art that you can view in the gallery below:
