It was inevitable, but a new companion will be coming to Star Wars: The Old Republic in the 2.3 update, an Ewok named Tweek.
In order to get the companion from the furry race that was featured in Return of the Jedi, the player needs to achieve level 40 and own 1,000,000 credits. Tweek will wear heavy armor and will boast healing and tank stances.
Could Gungans be next? Perish the thought.
