BioWare has updated the holonet on its website for Star Wars: The Old Republic with information and screenshots of Taris, which has seen some conflict between the Jedi and Sith.

This confrontation killed off most of Taris’s civilization, and The Republic is eying it for colonization – only problem is a Sith-created disease inhabiting it that turns folks into horrible things.

It’s lurking in some swampy ruins, and this centuries old plague, is just lying in wait biding its time before it get the chance to turn beings into horrific rakghouls. Mwha ha ha ha.

Sounds frightening, and awesome.

The Old Republic MMO is tentatively scheduled for 2011.
