Star Wars: The Old Republic

Many, including myself, are eagerly awaiting Bioware's highly anticipated MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic (SW:TOR). Bioware had a huge success with the Neverwinter Nights series and the Knights of the Old Republic series, but this is their first attempt at a MMORPG.

Many players of the Star Wars Galaxies (SWG) MMO are very excited to see what Bioware and Lucas Arts have planned. SWG is set during the Galactic Civil War between the Empire and the Rebels. SW:TOR is set 3,000 years before the rise of Darth Vader, a time when the struggle between the Sith and the Jedi is front stage.

Your choices and actions in the game will steer your character towards the dark or light side and affect how your game progresses.

An added, and very interesting, feature of SW:TOR is the ability to have companion non-player characters that will add a new dimension to MMO's. These NPC's add to the story arc and allow you to experience a richer world.

Personally I am very excited about this MMO and I hope that Bioware can deliver a game that will live up to the expectations of the fanbase. This game has a huge potential and many cannot wait to get started.

Sorry I couldn't find a way to turn off the autoplay. :(
Video Documentary #1 to wet your lips. Enjoy!
