In a recent Star Wars The Old Republic Developer Livestream (Part 1 & Part 2), where they announced the details about Game Update 5.10, the developers also announced an unexpected bombshell.

While they were announcing the return of companions Doc, Nadia and Jaesa, Charles Boyd, the Creative Director for SWTOR revealed that they would be introducing same-sex romances for these companions.

Charles Boyd added later on in the stream that they want to introduce same-sex romances for other vanilla companions when it fits in thematically with the story. He wasn’t specific on timing but it is definitely the direction they want to go in.

They also revealed details on a host of other features coming into Game Update 5.10 including sweeping Guild Changes and Improvements and a new PvP Challenge system that allows you to challenge others to private Warzones and Arenas.

Stay tuned for more information about Game Update 5.10!
