I was expecting Geonosis to be announced next, but this is good too. Aside from the Balmorra Run from The Clone Wars, has this planet ever really been referenced before?

Yes, on Dark Empire II and on Inferno from what I can recall.

Could be an interesting conflict point in-game. I wonder if the native populace will play any part, with the idea of resentment of the Republic thrown in there...

Its been mentioned in multiple Books, Games, Comics and Novels, but not seen in much detail, as most appearance's have been in Novels.

Cool News BTW! :)

Hadn't heard of it before. The situation on the planet is an interesting one, hope they can make something of it.

Uh oh, do I see a world that looks destined to have some major PvP action? I THINK I DO! :D

It's in the webcomic IIRC.

What I meant was had it been referenced in anything outside of TOR?

Plenty of stuff. I know some comics with the Jedi Council just before TPM involved it. Consult the Wookieepedia page, it'll have the info. Plus this is 3500 years before, they can easily make Balmorra a war-torn world. Years will pass after TOR, the Sith Empire will fade again, and Balmorra will finally have a chance at peace, during whence they can rebuild and become a peaceful world if they so please(though I think Balmorra's been warlike quite often, I'll have to check Wookieepedia myself).

I too have never heard of this planet. The situation looks like one that will be fun no matter what.

Sounds familiar.
BTW, does this sound like a battleground zone to anyone else?
