BioWare has dropped details on the Sith planet of Dromund Kass with its latest Star Wars: The Old Republic Holonet update.

Those familiar with the Star Wars universe know that Dromund Kaas was the third planet in the Dromund system, which started out as a colony before moving on to become the capital of the Old Sith Empire.

Later, it was the base of the Prophets of the Dark Side, where the Dark Force Temple contained such dark power that most weapons malfunctioned on the planet’s surface, thanks to the strength of the Force.

The planet was also the site of a massive battle during the Sith Wars and for aeons, the planet’s location was known only to very few Sith Lords.

However, for the time line in the game, Dromund Kaas is home to the Emperor and his Dark Council, and despite being “off the map” it is still “very much the center of the Empire,” even with the Emperor himself having fallen silent recently. Still, his Dark Council “may have awakened a dangerous, hidden power within the planet’s jungles and ruins”.

Fucking win, right there. We cannot wait.

It’s out, hopefully, sometime this year. Hit the link for the rest of the update, along with a video complete with pole dancers.
