Star Wars: The Old Republic Teases Us With Everyone’s Favorite Assassin Droid

… Or at least with his updated cousin. There’s no self-respecting fan of the Old Republic setting that doesn’t know and love HK-47. Unfortunately, due to the latest updates, he’s become a bit of a pushover. I can literally tank him blindfolded (I actually tried, if there’s one thing SWTOR does well are audio cues).

That’s probably why BioWare is going to provide an updated version “very soon”, named HK-51. This time he won’t be a relentless (until the next update) enemy, but a valuable companion for our characters.

To tease us with his upcoming implementation, BioWare released a new cinematic trailer, that you can’t see below. At the moment details are scarce, besides the fact that acquiring the new companion won’t be the easiest of tasks.

Declaration: Assassination Protocols Active.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
