Posted by: Nathaniel at 12/1/2011 3:47 PM
SOE announced today that their free-to-play and completely kid-friendly online "world," Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures (CWA) will receive a free update on December 15 called Clone Wars Adventures: Battle of Umbara.  TV series regulars should recognize Umbara as the Separatist planet at the heart of a recently wrapped-up four part story arc. CWA: Battle of Umbara will, for the first time, allow players to work together to engage in direct combat.  Other features include:
 
  • Combat Abilities: Destroy enemy droids, using:
    • Weapon Attack uses players' default attack and will utilize the weapons they are equipped with.
    • Force Attack is much more powerful and requires the use of Force Points  -- a force that can only be used when fully charged.
  • Mission Instances: Players will be faced with thrilling missions, if they defeat a boss they will be granted a unique item reward.
  • Zone Events: Players will be able to participate in zone events, working together and creating a dynamic environment!
  • Synchronous Multiplayer: Over-world zones will allow players the ability to tackle the droid threat together, letting in multiple people simultaneously.
  • Mounts: Available for purchase in the marketplace, players can move quickly through Umbara on an AT-RT, Tauntaun, Speeder Bike or more.
  • Collections: Each Combat Zone has 5 unique collections -- by finding all the collection items in a set, players will obtain 1 piece of a unique zone-themed gear set (feet, body, hands, head or weapon).
  • Destructible Objects: Players will be able to attack and destroy objects like crates, ship debris, or barricades found throughout the zone.
  • Rewards: Players that complete all available content in the combat area, will be given titles, achievements/trophies, or furniture rewards when successfully completing events and story instances.

Incidentally, does anyone else think that the whole Umbara story line would have been better if Master Krell had, rather than being an undercover Separatist, been simply a cruel, uncaring general who felt clones were beneath his contempt, and that was why he sent them on hopeless full frontal assault after hopeless full frontal assault?


A huge open world combat expansion is coming to Sony Online Entertainment's (SOE) ever-popular and family-friendly, free-to-play online world, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures (CWA) as a free update on December 15. Clone Wars Adventures: Battle of Umbara features a large battlefield zone, a mission instance featuring the "Umbaran Airfield" (as featured on the show), a zone event and collections.
 
Clone Wars Adventures: Battle of Umbara is based on the shadow people's planet Umbara, and for the first time allows players to work together to engage in direct combat. Jedi players will battle Separatists and Umbaran forces using customizable weapon attacks, The Force attacks and mounts.
