Sony has released a number of screenshots for the upcoming Star Wars Galaxies expansion set to feature space combat. Many former Origin employees have worked on Galaxies, which should be good news if you're a Star Wars fan. The expansion sounds pretty neat, and some of the larger ships that work in conjunction with fighters should be interesting.
Set in the Star Wars timeframe between Episode IV and Episode V, this first extension to the Star Wars Galaxies opens 10 vast and distinct space sectors, spanning from the Core Worlds to the Outer Rim, for players to explore while engaging their opponents in intense real-time combat or uniting with friends in battle or exploration . Players can embark on more than 100 new missions, venturing through asteroid fields, nebulae and space junkyards while honing skills in four new space-specific professions. The game also features two new and completely customizable species.here.
