Star Wars: The Old Republic  Preview -- Introducing Huttball and Operation Eternity Vault

Star Wars The Old Republic is still currently slated for a 2011 release, but as of PAX last weekend we still don't have a release date. Regardless, at Gamescom 2011 we got a glimpse at BioWare's MMO masterpiece once again, and got to go in depth with the game's PVP and raid mechanics with Huttball and Operation Eternity Vault.

First there was the reveal of a new PVP warzone called Huttball. It was presented like a mix between American football and Rollerball, with players using their powers, however violent or devastating, to attain victory. The idea: grab an energy ball and pass and run it over the opposition’s outside line to score a goal. Curiously, at least to those more invested in the Star Wars canon than your author, the teams were mixed, meaning Siths could be paired against each other, as could Jedis.

Be sure to read our entire Star Wars: The Old Republic preview from Gamescom 2011 to learn more about Operation Eternity Vault, the end game level 50 raid.
