NTIP! Exclusive Scoop on the new R2-inspired droid from Visceral’s Star Wars Game and her powers!
- Doc is the droid owned by Dodger, the game’s main character.
- He stole her and she’s his field medic.
- She travels on a rolling base covered by a cylindrical body. The original design was based on McQuarrie’s Artoo design, the same design that inspired BB-8.
- However, the big difference for Doc is that her head docks to her body allowing her to detach and help in interesting way. Doc will presumably heal you in-game.
- Her body is white. The detailing (like where Artoo is blue) is red. She has a disc antenna on top of her head like Chopper.
- In concept art she uses the claw arm attached to her head to pickpocket a stormtrooper.
- She is featured in all main cast group concepts.
- Doc’s head detaches and floats around Dodger’s shoulder, hacking doors and healing him in concept art.
