E3: BioWare releases gameplay clips for SWTOR

Wednesday, 16th June 2010 20:32 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


BioWare has released a video showing some gameplay clips of Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The video is over on Eurogamer, and it shows about five-minutes of in-game footage.

There’s also a look at some of the player ships – both Republic and Empire – a look at the armor progression for the Bounty Hunter, and finally, how a mission can play out, depending on the options you choose.

It’s not as heart pounding like the CGI trailer released last week, but at least it’s in-game.

SWTOR is slated for sometime after March 2011.

    The quests seem to be true to the way they played out in the original and seemed quite entertaining for the dark side.

    As a Hardcore MMORPG gamer i will say that it will fail. The reason is simple. Developers completely don’t understand what WOW makes a fun MMORPG game and they are trying to copy it adding story elements from early Bioware games.

    EA already tried with Warhammer, it failed, this one will be the same for a really big reason, and Bioware don’t understand that. Shame.

    This isn’t true Star Wars, it’s just another MMO. Oh how I miss the Jedi Knight series..

    Thats funny because even Blizzard is infusing story in their next expansion they even made a profession that is nothing but for the story. Maybe you don’t know what people want from an MMO.

    And Hardcore MMORPG Gamer is less than 5% of the MMO community thats why Blizzard went away from the grindfest of the original WoW to the casual players.

    The problem with MMOs – is the same problem with all games. You can’t please everyone.

    They either hate the grind, too much or not enough focus on crafting, you can’t get a mount soon enough, there’s not enough hooks in the house, too much PvP / not enough PvP, too much story, not enough story, it derails from the lore, it sticks too close to the lore, tanks have too much power/don’t have enough power, the induction times for spells are not long enough to make it fair for others/too long for the users – etc etc etc.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

    @8 unless you are Blizzard, and have that little extra something that no one else has.

    I don’t know what it is either.

    Or it’s a game made for people like me , who get quickly tired of every mmo because it’s a grind in both pvp and pve , without a proper (yet despite multiple tentatives) quest and story system .

    Warhammer isnt even a good example given how they f*cked up so easily . The game was ugly , ran laggy like poo and was a dissapointment even for hardcore Dark age of Camelot fans , who awaited it like the messiah and spiritual sequel .

    The problem will be when someone actually offer something UP to blizzard’s level of quality , and commercially fails . Wich none of the candidate did so far between Conan , Aion , WAR , Star trek etc…
    The only hreat one so far , was the (not so much a) mmo guild wars , and it sold like crazy .

    Plus it’s star wars . Even the subpar Sw galaxies and Star trek game had some success , despites their big and numerous flaws
