During Episode 10 of the Jace Hall Show, Space Combat is shown in action to fans of Star Wars: The Old Republic. This segment came at the end of the episode and was the teaser for Episode 11. It is implied that Episode 11 will feature more footage, possibly more of Space Combat. Along with the small teaser of Space Combat was an interview with Director of Production Dallas Dickinson and Marketing Director Leo Olebe from BioWare.

One notable thing was confirmed during the video - you can do a barrel roll by pressing the space bar (Leo Olebe). Thanks to Mako for the tip.

As our final interview from Florida, we sat down with marketing specialists Leo Olebe from BioWare and Rob Cowles from LucasArts to learn a little more about Friday updates, media assets, community input, and herding cats.
