    Greeting Legends,

    As we already know, the Star Wars universe has always been full of bright and often interesting humanoids and aliens. Way back in 1977 we were introduced to our first installment of the Star Wars Saga, we suddenly set our eyes onto a very odd looking, hairy creature. Little did we know that this character and the actor playing the role would capture the hearts of millions of fans across the world with his captivating performance of playing the iconic and beloved Chewbacca.

    Sadly back in 30 April 2019 the actor; Peter Mayhew passed away due to his ill health. We always think the game and our project has a deeper connection with you, our audience. Star Wars Galaxies has such an intricate relationship with the iconic Star Wars characters which appear within the original trilogy, It only made sense for us to honour his life and contributions to the Star Wars fandom by erecting a permanent in-game memorial area. This in-game memorial statue is in a secluded area of Kashyyyk, Kachiro area.



    How can I visit the Chewbacca Memorial?

    You can visit the Chewbacca Memorial by opening your points of interest by pressing “V” whilst in-game and selecting the Chewbacca Memorial, a waypoint will be provided to you. Please remember to be respectful if other players are visiting the area.



    The Forest Calls To You

    The area surrounding the memorial is very strong with the force. Players which visit the memorial should try using certain emotes to awaken the forest, which emotes do you think could awaken the Kashyykian flora? “/Pound, /Roar, /WookieeHug” seems likely, don’t you think? If you can awaken the forest then surely the force will issue you with a commemorative memorial in-game item.

    We hope you’ve enjoyed learning a little bit more about our in-game memorial to Peter Mayhew within this Friday Feature. His legacy will live on within our project for years to come; May the force be with him, always.

    Really? Did you really need to put a freakin' "porg" on the memorial? REALLY?

    There's no respect for Star Wars or the dead anymore...

    Okay, honestly I just think that things like BB-8, porgs, and "new canon" are artless gimmicks by world-corporate media monopoly disney. I simply find it offensive that there is so much plastering of those overt marketing symbols as legitimate "Star Wars."

    But I suppose it was made diligently with good intent (it IS a virtual memorial for a REAL person), and I recant any sentiment that would indicate otherwise in the original post.

    I checked out the Memorial this past weekend while doing the Avatar Platform quest line, was really fun getting the "spirits of the Forests" attention and the reward afterward. the Dev content here is top-notch, i'm stoked for Bespin and Felucia.
