September 13 - Leaked Images
Star Wars Hunters images popped up online thanks to a Facebook ad (via Daily Star Wars Games), giving us a new glimpse at the UI, some of the hunters, and a bit of the customization. There's Storm Troopers, Wookies, Jawas, and what looks like a random assortment of droids and other galactic vagabonds. You'll be able to customize your hunter as well, even down to (apparently) stacking Jawas on top of each other and sending them out to fight.
Still no word on a Star Wars Hunters release date, though.
