u loved everquest and i totally agree:) The graphics was werry hi, most games that does get Fame actually has some sort of nice or smarter graphics:)) Galaxy divided,Everquest, not mmo but fames :battlefield 2. WOW did also get great graphics combinding werry smart graphics, not hi hardware demanding but well produced anyway.. So agin yes- nice graphics and sound tracks do alot i the game, u skip this stuff u get low quality game:) sorry all low hardware owners,,,, this game world sux a little sometimes cause of low hardware budget:))

Hi all starwars fans:) First sorry my english SUX:) I loved galaxy divided, the quest where not to nice, like fighting aginst a pole or somthing hehe, but the game was advanced and it was also possible to set graphics wery hi and detailed (witch i love, cause i always have the newest hardware at home:). I really dont like that games like this comes in low graphics due money talks cause of peoples dont afford nice hardware, this feels like i get punnished my self for spending money on great hardware, I propably need to bye new hardware , cause of the producers, i bye expensive hardware and the producers whait 2 years before a game like i Wanted finally are her for me to play (hi graphics advanced games) point is : i never get to use my expensive hardware before its get old;( ( i talk 24 years of exp here) from NES to 2011 pc, what then? -yes i have to bye new hardware agin - and so on...I really love Pc graphics .... Yes its ok to make the game work for low hardware, but agin make the hi hardware to be the priority, so the low money budget dont ruin the game for hardware kings. so if U dont have hardware... well then u cant play in hi graphics. Big games like this should be Hi detailed, for low hardware owners -set the graphics down and plz let me set it up! the music is aslo werry musty! the soundtrack need to change with borders, plases, houses , caves and so on, wow did it pretty good there,,,,,,,

I love Bioware games, but dont get your hopes to high people, I mean this is there first MMO, noone you know from the Star Wars movies will be here because none of them are alive haha. I think as long as they dont set the graphics engine to high, they expand PvP and give it good characters to accompany the story (like Dragon Age) it will be great, but it wont be a huuge game world, it wont have amazing PvP, the story wont beat Dragon Age's (or KOTRO imo) and it wont be everything you want it to be. Set expectations lower and it will be a good game for what it is.

Ugh, I need to try not to get too hyped up over this game, but it's tough.

Chances are, this will be my very first MMO.

@toughcritic28 I couldn't agree more.

@Elann2008 Yea, I completely agree. I've been playing the beta for Rift a little bit, and thus far it just feels like it's more of the same old same old. It actually plays a lot like Warhammer, which does not bode well for it, so my expectations of that game are needless to say pretty low. TOR and GW2 are the only games coming out this year that have any chance at being awesome. Honestly I feel like if neither of these games can deliver, I will have lost all faith in MMO's because I have not been entertained by one since everquest... someone needs to make an original damn MMO for the love of God.

Thank you for having the most ambiguous interview ever, where you actually don't describe anything about the game itself :) Regardless im still gonna buy it

I see there are some who want Kotor 3. I also would like to play a sequel with Revan, Canderus, Vrisas and Bastila in a single player experience with new characters and solving the plot about what actually happend to Revan after Kotor 1. But the Old Republic is a game so huge that I doubt that in the mid term we will see a third installment of Kotor.

Please God, I know I'm probably being naive, but please make this something that can run on a single core, with good memory and GPU to help it along. I don't have the money to upgrade, and I think I will genuinely cry if I can't play this game on release!!

@smookert010 How do you know? The specs for GW2 are not out yet. Also, my computer costed over 600 euro and I can live with it. You know, we PC gamers are used to invest to have better games, we're not irrational like the console crowd... "I want a magic box that plays all games with the best graphics and it has to cost 200 bucks! And it cannot run better on better machines or I'll cry and call people fanboys!". Cheap and mediocre or slightly expensive (c'mon, 600 euros) and great? Sign me for number 2. That said, SWTOR doesn't look great, but has it's charm, and Bioware RULES making RPGs, so I'll play it anyway - but I'll also play GW2, and I'll decide wich will be my new MMO after reaching the lv cap in both games.

yea about GW2, you don't need imba PC to run it, if you have 8600GT and dual core you will be able to run it really nicely, because Anet is developing it on PCs that are 3-4 years old.

I think its funny how people are saying how bad the graphics are. When they didnt even go for a real look. They wanted something that didnt look like evey other game. If anyone knows mmo's you need people for them to be fun. Not eveyone had the best computer out there. Great job on the game!

smookert010
smookert010

you fools never learn do you.. An mmo should have outdated graphics, only for the 200 players running on your screen shooting and bashing at each other. Gw2 has awesome graphics. But you need a machine of at least 400 euro to play that. And if you want to play it smooth whit a steady framerate make it 600..

Elann2008

Eh.. Rift is going to flop. If you think it's going to do any better than all these new MMOs coming out and trying to take a chunk of the market, you're wrong. Warhammer dropped down to 100k subs or less, and they had a pretty strong command with 700k or so, with 1mil pre-orders. Excellent game support is just as important as developing an MMO to launch. The only two MMOs coming out that I see will last a while are probably Star Wars The Old Republic - because BioWare has proven time and time again, that they can deliver on a massive scale. Their games have been Triple A quality since the days of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. The other MMO, would be Guild Wars 2, because they not only chose to have no subscription fee, shows that they aren't just after our pockets. Secondly, NCsoft has come along way with the original Guild Wars + Expansions, and the improvements with GW2 is a HUGE step forward for the franchise. It's like a whole 'nother game, visually and gameplay wise.

The talk is good. We'll see about the execution. Rift now, TOR in September/October. Not a bad year for MMOs.

god this game looks... terrible. I'm sure it will be fun and I have faith in Bioware but damn these are some outdated graphics.

I'm scared to see how many gigs this game will be. A MMO with FULL voice acting. The audio files alone would be from 5-10 gigs. Time to make some space.

Dragon Mass Effect Age: The Old Republic of Baulder's Gate.

@SDshadowsniper Star Wars:The Old Republic pretty much IS KOTR 3. I wouldn't hold your breath for too long.

@Sully0227 Until the Devs state there is a delay, it's still on for Spring 2011, that's the official word on the Dev topic regarding the release.

Is this game 'coming soon' or what? I hear Q2 (April, May, June) of 2011. Then I hear September and now October of 2011, as well as January of 2012. What's the deal?! I hope there is a release date at Pax in March.

@Isti01 actually mmo graphics do get better over time, what they always make sure to have is a good slider for detail and graphics settings. So if you do have a high end machine you can push the slider all the way up to ultra, or if it's low end you can lower it some notches. MMO developers also don't rush out to make sure their game takes full advanatage of the very latest graphics cards each year but they always make minor updates here and there to make sure it looks beatiful.If you playes GW at launch and a few montsh after you would swear it was a diffrent game. Some games like wow aren't meant to be photorealistic in style but their beasts and bosses and magic effects always look top notch.

@GeorgeSyll you are so right, despite the people thumbing you down. So funny how people can't have an opinion without getting thumbs down. Seems like they HAVEN'T fixed the animations. Still get the "play and stop" feel to it. Like playing a clip that doesn't sync, animations just simply isn't fluid. Bioware should have just keep themselves out of the mmo-business, doesn't seem to deliver. But hey, lets wait for the game, maybe it will deliver or end up like FFXIV when it was launched.

Seriously at 1:55 is so true. I hate that I played ToR because no every other MMO sucks! Take my money now Bioware!! I can't wait to see Corasant (spelling?) I remember in an old Republic developer dispatch they said buildings are being made to scale. Imagine walking into that city the first time!

Oh my god, I'm looking so forward to this, and I'm really happy that they let people test it and listen to what they have to say. I have a feeling this is gonna be a great game :D

will they ever stop talking about the storyline?geez i'm allready bored. yeah its star wars and story is supposed to be important but lets talk a bit about the "MMO" part of the game shall we? i have a feeling that this isnt gonna be a traditional MMO were you'll be having fun with your friends,do instants and crafting and stuff like that. i bet its gonna be something like an online single player thing. wich is a bad thing, i hope i'm wrong. and why do the characters look so cartooney? thats an odd thing coming from bioware.... this feels wrong.

The guy / trooper at 1:58 looks like he has boobs lol :)) Still i think they over rate it (saying how good it is )....i mean you shouldn't say : if you play this game you won't want to play other mmo's (they said it with exaclty those words :D )
