Play as the Cathar
BioWare has rolled out "Game Update 2.1: Customization" for Star Wars: The Old Republic. As previously demonstrated, this update introduces the Cathar as a playable race up for purchase at the Cartel Market as well as an Appearance Designer Kiosk.
The kiosk is where you'll be able to customize your character's physical appearance, hair style and color, and species. There are also Dye Modules for modifying armor sets, because no one wants to look ugly when they're out exploring the galaxy. Rounding out update 2.1 are individual purchases that allow character and guild renaming, among other things.
