Star Wars: The Old Republic – The entire reveal presentation in video

Monday, 27th October 2008 22:43 GMT By Patrick Garratt


LucasArts passed over a video edit of the entire reveal presentation of BioWare MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic today, held in San Francisco last week. Watch it after the break.

The movie is nearly 20 minutes long, and contains large sections of talk from BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, as well as talk-throughs on art style and level design from senior developers at the studio.

There are several sections in there from LucasArts president Darrell Rodriguez.

And no: there’s no footage of gameplay. Two trailers were shown at the event – one on the history of the KOTOR franchise, and one showing early gameplay – but both have been edited out. Apparently there’s a movie exclusive deal in place with a US broadcaster, so no such luck for you, we’re afraid.

We were there, if you recall, so you’ll just have to trust us when we say it did look awesome. Read our live blog of the event to see what happened.

Watch the video, innit.

    You know, your live blog was somehow more interesting than the presentation. :)

    Thanks for posting! I find it hard that no one has asked the big question yet – who will publish this in Europe? LucasArts has a deal with Activision/Blizzard to publish their Star Wars games in Europe, and of course, they are now EA’s biggest rival.

    For all EA’s hot air recently, they just own the studio developing this title, and who were probably developing it before EA purchased them.
