Star Wars Galaxies Features “Delayed”

LucasArts will delay the inclusion of player-owned cities, vehicles, and Dark Jedi to some time after the April launch of the Star Wars online role-playing game.


LucasArts and Sony Online have revealed that some key features have been postponed from the initial feature list for Star Wars Galaxies. The list includes player-owned cities, drivable vehicles, player-generated missions, and the Dark Jedi character class.


In a lengthy post on the official Star Wars Galaxies forums, LucasArts producer Haden Blackman offers detailed reasons for why each feature will be delayed, noting that in the Live Team schedule there’s “a plan for implementing the postponed systems within the first seven or eight months after launch.” Blackman also suggests that many of the delayed features are not immediately critical because it will take some time for players to attain the necessary levels in order to use them.
