"Welcome Home" in the 40 second trailer.
It starts with the Coruscant skyline but pulls back until we're through a window of a spacious apartment, which is then revealed to be player owned. What about our starships?
It was presumed that 'player housing' had already been addressed in The Old Republic by the starships players gain control of, however customisation never materialised.
This announcement trailer, captured by 'swtormovies', reveals BioWare now fully intends for us to have an apartment firmly grounded in the galaxy. What kind of customisation it would offer is unknown, or whether we'll have multiple options or just one. The trailer teases only that we'll get player housing in an update.
This has likely been in the planning for a while and in response to the imminent rise of MMO rivals EverQuest Next, WildStar and others focusing more on player content creation. Twoare due for release in 2014.
