it's a Fan Friday with Studio insider.

The Fan Friday have an interview with CRR.
The studio insider is mostly talking about "polishing" and a Q.A. with William Wallace about the classes.

Interesting question that ring hints about "mounts!"

A: We have no plans currently for jetpacks as a mode of fast travel outside of combat. You’ll have to rely on your personal transportation for that (details to be revealed later!) which offers a much more comfortable ride anyway.

I think mounts had been mentioned somewhere before. At least I was under the impression that I knew with certainty that we would get mounts...
Ah, yes, it was when they said that mounts will be a money sink.

Leaks! What a Face

BioWare haven't talked about mount at all, except maybe mention the Taxi system.

My mistake. I actually didn't read any previews since...well last year. bounce

edit: Looks like the UK event press stuff will hit soon, Buffed.de published something about a new warzone (the Voidstar) in their mag...

From today's update:
"Furthermore, you can customize your companions with kits that add extra abilities such as Grenade Launchers, Flame Throwers, etc." - Senior Game Designer William Wallace

So it appears there will be some sort of "Companion Kit" system... instead of gear for your companions?

Are these "Companion Kits" effectively a 1 gear slot system for gearing your companions? How much gear work is this going to add?

How much will it change your companion's role?

So many interesting questions...

I'm thinking along the lines of something like DA2, possibly.

Main slot for the "kit" determines role, with a few extra slots for random bits that you can give them to tailor that role a bit.

That's my theory atm anyway, no real way to back it up.


Also....Yay! CCR! WOOO!
