    I was hoping to see just a glimpse of game play =(. Hopefully they don't jack this one up.

    Bioware and lucase arts. The game should be visually appealing as well as well made!

    That trailer was impressive.

    Don't be fooled by this trailer. This will have all the hallmarks of a good Bioware game, but lack all the features that make for a good PVP game. I was hoping they would use the Mass Effect engine for this game, its sad that they took a step backward in terms of game development.

    They are actually using a 3rd party game engine, which as far as I know is actually a really smart idea. The engine they are using was built specifically for MMOs, but the bad news is SWTOR will be the first major game that'll be using it.

    The features of the engine seem extremely cool from what I've read, http://www.massively.com/2008/12/11/massivelys-interviews-the-makers-of-the-old-republics-game-eng/

    In fact, using anything other than this engine for MMO development simply seems dumb. BioWare has taken a massive step forward and not backward. If the engine doesn't deliver there will be lawsuits and seeing as how BioWare has been using it for over 2 years it is pretty safe to say that even the early version of the engine they got pleased them.
     
  15. Time will tell. Who knows how the PvP will turn out since we dont even know how the game plays :)

    Either way, VN boards trolls will start killing it there way before it releases.
     
  16. Cedwyn Banned

    Yes, that would have been truly awesome. Infact, they need a Mass Effect MMO :)

    Sorry, but Bioware is taking a huge step forward. Mass Effect is a gigantic flaming PoS compared to the engine they will be using for SWTOR. You might want to do some reading up on what exactly the HeroEngine can do, if you didn't know they were using it already.

    I don't mind someone saying the game will lack good PvP as there is a chance of that, but spouting off bs about taking a step backward is plain old retarded.

    Bioware is using the best tool for the job, an engine specifically built for MMOs. Not an engine that needs to be converted for an MMO.

    Trailer was definitely better than Ep. 1-3!!!! LONG LIVE THE SITH!!!!!!!
     
  19. El Topo Lord

    I know about the Hero Engine, and think its a really good engine for MMOGs. However what I was suggesting was the fact that Bioware was making the move to real-time combat with its newer games (Mass Effect/Jade Empire), but their new Star Wars MMO isn't continuing this trend. Not to say auto attack systems don't work or aren't fun (ex: Guild Wars), its just I've already played one Star Wars MMO that used auto attack. Its getting old. The whole time I was playing SWG I thought to myself it would kickass as an FPS.
     
  20. its sad that a 1.5 minute cg trailer is better than all three prequels combined.

    Im holding out for gameplay footage, but it promises to be a very good game.
