BioWare blows brains with intro cinematics for Star Wars MMO
Old Republic gets CG makeover
BioWare has bowled over E3 with a taste of its highly-anticipated MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Fans have been patiently waiting for this particular Star Wars title to appear since it was first announced in 2008 amid bold claims it would attract more players than World of Warcraft. Periodically, we've been reminded the game is still in production, however nothing has whet the palate quite like this.
And as the mouth-watering CG trailer for the Old Republic demonstrates, it's getting harder to differentiate between real video and computer graphics.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Make sure you fullscreen this bad boy and get that chin-strap fastened - it's quite a jaw-dropper. ®
After that amazing intro you are given your first quest:
Collect 10 rat tails
But unfortunately, it seems chock full of Sith and Jedi, just like almost every other SW-themed game out there (Republic Commando being a notable exception).
I like the SW universe very much. I am unhappy with the fact that nobody seems to be able to make any other part of it interesting.
RE: Timeline #
This is set a few hundered years after KOTOR2 (I could look up the exact time, but it doesn't really matter)
That intro had more class and style - and lovable characters than the last 3 SW films put together.
One word comes to mind...
...where's the gameplay, dammit?
