Star Wars: The Old Republic adding catgirls

Playable catfolk are coming to Star Wars: The Old Republic with update 2.1, BioWare has proudly revealed. As well as introducing the Cathar race, who look an awful like humans wearing bad facepaint, the 'Customization' update will let players redesign their character's looks and recolour their armour.

If fancy a spot of trick-or-treating, you'll be able to change existing characters to Cathar at 2.1's new Appearance Designer Kiosk. "This is going to allow you to change your character's eye colour, hair style, body type, even their species," said producer Cory Butler in a video update.

Here's a peek at the Cathar on the prowl:
