BioWare and LucasArts have released a behind-the-scenes video for their upcoming massively multiplayer role playing game Star Wars: The Old Republic. The new video showcases actual gameplay for the first time, and gives an behind-the-scenes look at the recording of dialogue for the game.
After playing EVE Online and Age of Conan, I promised myself that I was finished with MMORPG’s. They’re too much of a time sink, even for a casual player like me. I was seriously let down by the last Star Wars MMO, Galaxies, and I don’t want to be burned again. That being said, BioWare is making this game; I don’t think they ever intended to make a cookie cutter MMO game. By what I’ve seen in this video, I may just lift my self-imposed ban on massively multiplayer games. Please don’t suck.
