Catching Up With Star Wars: The Old Republic

Posted By Mike on August 27, 2011

What's more important? Should I hunker down and await Hurricane Irene's arrival while stormproofing my home or should I spend my time thinking about Star Wars instead? As any right thinking Star Wars fan would, I chose the latter! So let's do a little catching up with our favorite upcoming Star Wars MMO without a release date. Of course, I am speaking of Star Wars: The Old Republic.


Let's start things off by touching base with the official site of The Old Republic where this weekend we're treated to a developer walkthrough of the Eternity Vault raid. From SWTOR.com:

"Throughout the week of GamesCom, those who stopped by the EA booth had the opportunity to see a live demonstration of the Eternity Vault, one of the high-level Operations in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. In it, Imperial forces are sent to investigate an ancient prison that is believed to hold a powerful and deadly threat to the Empire.

We don’t want the people who couldn’t make it to Cologne to miss out. In our new video, BioWare’s Dallas Dickinson guides you through the opening minutes of the Eternity Vault. Check it out and be sure to visit our Twitter and Facebook pages for all the latest news and updates on The Old Republic."



Moving on to other random news and links regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic...

Pre-sales seem to still be going well for the Collector's Edition of the game. PunchJump.com reports that, as of 8-23-11, the TOR Collector's Edition held the number 1 spot for pre-sales at Best Buy.

And if you think that online pre-sales being limited to the EA Origin store is hurting BioWare, founder Dr. Greg Zeschuk isn't too worried. Here is what he had to say to PCGamer.com at GamesCom:

“Once you get into the digital space it’s pretty easy to get stuff,” says Dr. Greg. ” I don’t think packaging it on Origin is going to hurt it in any way – we’ll have such reach and demand that I think it’ll be fine. Our experience of working with Origin is that it’s actually pretty slick and works well. I wouldn’t say it’s totally a commodity to sell digitally but you know that’s an element of it, to create that digital download experience.”


How long do you plan on playing the Star Wars MMO? According to VideoGamer.com, the non-realistic art style lends itself to game longevity.


Metro.co.uk gives you a two for one preview and interview surrounding Star Wars: The Old Republic. While the article is very good, the title is even better: "Star Wars: The Old Republic preview and interview – or: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the MMO."


Last but not least, GameSpot.com provides the following video interview from GamesCom with BioWare producer Cory Butler.




Hurricanes may come and go but Star Wars is forever!
