TOR @ Comic-Con!

Friday comes early today; I haven't even left work yet. Perhaps that's because there isn't all that much there; more like an extended Fan Friday.

The main body of today's news is, as the title indicates, about them showing Star Wars: The Old Republic at this year's Comic-Con and what they'll be doing there. Here is the official news:
The Old Republic Panel
Can’t get enough of Star Wars™: The Old Republic™? Join the TOR Development Team at the Comic-Con International panel “Behind the Scenes - The Making of Star Wars: The Old Republic” on Friday, July 24th at 1:00-2:00PM. Head over to Room 7AB where Jake Neri (Producer, LucasArts) will speak with Hall Hood (Senior Writer, BioWare), Alexander Freed (Managing Editor, BioWare), Dallas Dickinson (Senior Content Producer, BioWare), and Jeff Dobson (Art Director, BioWare) about creating Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Limited Edition Threat of Peace™ Mini-Comic Giveaway
Thursday through Saturday, the Threat of Peace™ webcomic writer Rob Chestney, and artist Alex Sanchez will be joining the crews at Lucasfilm (Booth #2913) and Dark Horse Comics (Booth #2615) to give away copies of the Threat of Peace mini-comic. Stop by and get your own signed copy!

“Deceived” Cinematic Trailer
We’ll also be showing the award-winning “Deceived” cinematic trailer at the Lucasfilm booth on Saturday and Sunday at 11am, 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm. Stop on by and check out the trailer on the big screen!

The Star Wars Spectacular
Join special guest hosts -- G4’s Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira -- and get all the latest news from the Star Wars universe in an all-new show format. Be sure to look out for The Old Republic at this special event on Friday, July 24 from 5:15PM-6:15PM in Hall H.
Unfortunately I'm out of the country that weekend, but I'll report all that there is to report as soon as I come back.

For the rest today's update is community highlights and a couple of new official polls (can find them through the link I posted above). But hidden between them is a new wallpaper as well. This one is based on the Deceived cinematic trailer they released during E3:

And that's pretty much it. Will keep you updated when there's more to report. And have a good weekend.
