Star Wars: The Old Republic creative designer, James Ohlen, has told Shacknews, that companion characters in the game will be more like “virtual friends” rather than just “pets”.
“Companion characters–we want them to be more than pets,” he said. “We want them to be virtual friends. We want you to interact with them and become friends with them.”
“You’re gonna be able to customize your companion character in different ways,” Ohlen continued. “Your companion characters are going to be levelling up and getting different equipment.”
