Could this ever get brought to the Xbox360 and PS3? Would be awesome to have the controls in your hands and not on a keyboard. Like an assassins creed, mass effect style of play.
i m really excited about The Old Republic. I really really really hope Bioware surpasses itself. Please do something that STANDS OUT !!! Like u said. :D
I really hope this just gonna another WoW clone. Ok, so it got talking, WoW dosent have that. It got story, WoW dosent have that. But my question is: do it got the right-click-to-attck and left-click-abilty-to-use combat that WoW, and further more do it got the go over there and kill ten somethng questing that WoW got. Its thing that really makes a big differens. Bioware and Lucasarts better not make these mistakes. OK?
Decisions actually matter now! No saving right before a decision and reloading if you don't like it! Wow!
I don't think you people understand how godly this game is gonna be. I believe this is the first MMO that Wow will feel.
I dont see how they can do a Star wars mmo without pvp.... I just don't have great hopes becouse they gotta make this huge... i mean REALLY HUGE to just imitate the star wars world a little bit, plus I'm going to be pissed if this turns out to be just another do some quests and play with mates, then the grinding 60% of the time... But I'm sure they will deliver a great story, I'm a great fan of Biowares games, kotor1-2 BG1-2+exp, NWN, mass effect - All those have great stories.. so.. yeah.. I think they will deliver a great story atleast :P
I like how they keep going back to the guy who keeps talking about how much content. If each content was a sugar cube you could sweeten the ocean on the clone creation planet
well i guess they do have an advanatge of having a great fanbase already (from the starwars universe).But yeah thy have to bring their "A" game.The mmo zone of gammign is brutall, with already heavy hitters like wow , War even aion from guildwars is lookin real snappy. Ive always wanted to play a good space mmo though , i may look into eve online in the meantime but yeah I'm excited to see what they can do.It's also interestign that thier not mentioning sw galaxies which i hear dint go too well and left a bad taste in peoples mouths.It's good their positive, good luck guys!!
Hmm the idea of giving virtually limitless freedom (however appealing) and combining it with a truly epic storyline may just be too much for this game. I don't doubt Bioware's ability but with many different classes and stories to go with each how can they possibly create equal pulling power for all classes. Going to be a Jedi/Sith fest if u ask me!
Im getting really tired of having to watch these damn ads before the vids. To make it worse its always the same damn ones!!!!!
as someone that played SWKOTOR 1&2 several times and enjoyed every second of it i have to say i am dissapointed that there wont be a SWKOTOR 3 mostly MMOs get repetitive after a while and the entire lure of that is that it actually has an END unlike MMOs, by the videos ive seen the graphics look abit anime like and with all due respect to anime WHAT THE HELL?! it looks like a downgrade from the kotors and even more notebly from Force Unleashed cmon... i know that this sounds great i thought so in the begining as well but after thoughtful consideration i dont think that it will deliver the so called "kotor" "continum" to the extent of the relatness, as a big SW fan i highly urge that they keep this seperate from the KOTOR series and make a KOTOR3 as well as TOR. as for n8berman, no kotor is set to about 1k years before the movies... and preacha91908 i totally agree with you id really like to see a continue for revan what the hell happened to him after he regained his true identity i think that it could be really cool to play as the REAL revan not someone that got mind wiped
I agree with Scottisme. I loved the first and second KOTOR for 360 and I was really looking forward to KOTOR 3. Don't know If I'm too happy with this.
Boring.... the guy tring to sell me a old car... Dejavu, repetitive ,repetitive ,repetitive ,repetitive ,repetitive ,repetitive .... :(
knight of the old republic 3,4,5,6? This one looks like an improvement to the kotor series, and i will defiantly look into the new one. This game will most likely be a great success
I've played a couple MMO's in the time that I have been gaming (most notably Star Wars Galaxies & Dungeons and Dragons Online), and they were fun for a while. The thing that always made me leave the MMO realm was that after a few months of playing, every hour spent in-game was just leveling, leveling, hunting for 'x' item, leveling and more leveling. The MMO became repetitive and boring. It got boring because there was no context for why I was spending my time killing these ruffians or slaying that ogre clan. Granted, it was fun running dungeons and flying around in a spaceship blowing stuff up, but you can't have a game that is purely action without some kind of plot. Now that there is an MMO coming out that has that 'fourth pillar' of story, as well as things from other successful MMO's built in, I think more players will be drawn into the game and stay with it for longer. I will definitely purchase this game when it comes out, even if it has monthly fees.
they do realize people will see this not as kotor online, they will see it as THE star wars mmo. in other words, if they don't do this exceedingly well, it will dissapoint many, and become a big fad very quickly. personally, i think it's a good idea, but they better be pretty damn brave to put their product up next to all the sw games and movies that made a nice picture on the wall in the hall of fame. but i do have interest, but there's gonna be a lot of picky people out there.
if it is a mounthly fee then make the game cheep. like if its $15 a month then sell it for $10-$20 insted of wows $50-$60 game then $15 monthley fee. and give 2 months free.
yeah.... ok old man, there is only 1 reason why you are not doing KOTOR 3 and that is because you son of $#%@ want money, hey blizzard is doing it right so why not eh, bleh this is so disappointing
good luck bioware, i've played Kotor2 before and i thought it was pretty good, but makeing a MMO out of it will be very hard...people will be expecting alot from it, and so they should be. i'm already in a MMO but there's always room for more :)
umm . . . not to be rude though, I dont think this MMO will be an exact continuation of KOTOR 2 coz, according to them they are quest in another quest. meaning its like that your character will have another set of personal story which will basically be your quest. and an MMO will be hardly used cause, The game KOTOR really has the prowess to be an MMO game in story, but the actions or places (like planets and ships as transport) will be a hard way for the player. im just giving my own perspective about on what the hell they are going to do with kotor. "BUT" I AM DEFINITELY A STAR WARS FAN!!!
Let me address just one problem. The man said "you don't know why you're killing 10 wolves, well the story puts that into context." I played WoW for a while (will again in the future, no doubt) among a number of other MMOs (never stuck with them, just tried) and let me tell you...I don't care why I'm killing 10 wolves. I don't care if it's the difference between saving the village people or beating a game, I'm tired of grinding. Don't give me a stupid reason to kill 10 wolves, or an excuse. Create lore about a dungeon and the secrets withheld inside and make me fight to unlock those secrets or something. Don't make my mission, under any circumstance, to kill a certain amount of idiot creatures. Trust me when I say killing wolves be interesting.
Also, as Snurredutten said, don't expect there to be 'Endings'. The idea of MMORPG's is to keep you playing, so making any definite end game would only encourage people to play to that end and then leave.
graw747 I think you have serious misunderstandings about what an mmorpg is and how it opperates. Companies creating and maintaining an mmo are in the business to make money. Upkeep alone demands there be a subscription fee. Guild Wars, of course, is the exception. However, Guild Wars doesn't operate like most MMO's, in that all ther players on line are not on the same server (or cluster of servers) at the same time. Instead they make heavy use of Instances allowing them to use a low number of servers to accommodate a massive number of people. So, they don't require a constant influx of money to maintain there server. I doubt SWTOR will make use of this design, so I would bet on a fee. But fee or not, if Bioware makes it, it's bound to be worth it.
I have completed kotor 1 &2 on both Light & Dark. I wonder how many endings there will be in the old republic?
OMG PEOPLE, QUIT YOUR WHINING!!!!!!! If u honestly expect this game to have no monthly fees then ur smokin somethin very very strong. They need some kind of cash to keep their servers runnin and to keep updating it. Only other alternative I can think of is to have in-game items that u buy with real-life cash but that would definitely draw players away because everyone would have crazy powerful items just because they had the extra cash..........Thats not earning the equipment at all, thats just retarded. And btw to topcat laugh, u saying xbox is glitchy makes me laugh because u know nothing. Ive owned an xbox, ive owned a ps3, ive owned a wii, and in NO WAY IS AN XBOX GLITCHY, OR ANY OTHER SYSTEM IVE OWNED FOR THAT MATTER SO STFU
