The Old Republic MMO

Postby Deputy1515 » Tue Mar 24, 2009 8:46 pm

In case you have been living under a rock...

http://www.swtor.com

New MMO being developed by BioWare. Likely will not be released until sometime in 2010. However, the buzz for this game is unreal. May be the next WoW.

Bioware brought you the following stellar PC games:

Baulders Gate
Neverwinter Nights
Jade Empire
Knights of the Old Republic
Mass Effect

Yeah they know how to make an RPG... Kinda think they may have a good thing here. Beta is expected later this year. Check it out... Looks awesome.

I'm pretty stoked for it, but my problem is MMO addiction. If it has the same 4-5 hour raiding mechanic that WoW has then I'd just have to say no thanks.

As far as I know, so far it does not look as if they will be settign it so much like WoW. But you never know, there is very little out about the game mechanics. I love BioWare, but they sure do know how to keep their information to themselves.

Update!!

Bioware has released a video demo of the game. (Not a playable demo... Just a video showing some game mechanics and several of the planets and classes)
Download them at IGN.com

It is 4 separate videos. DL them all and watch them in order... makes me want this game out now...

Preach on brother.

I expect that SWToR will be more similar to WoW than original Galaxies.
