What started as a rumor has turned into a full fledged 'confirmation' in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Officially making the announcement at Comic-Con, SWTOR community manager Sean Dahlberg broke the news that space combat would be in the MMO. The announcement sort of makes sense, considering that player-housing was created in the form of customizable ships. Letting those ships actually fly is the next best thing.
No details were given as to what in-game flight will actually be like, but fans shouldn't have to wait long. More details will be upcoming in the October edition of PC gamer. Only a few more months until we all find out how awesome blowing up a Sith Interceptor will be! Until then, fans will have to wait patiently (or hope for a leak).
