Our dissection of the Star Wars: The Old Republic content released during E3 is now online. As in our prior dissections, we will add new content in as we find it, so keep checking back. Feel free to let us know if you notice something we missed, and we will be happy to add it to our dissection with credit. Note: If something is mentioned in a prior dissection, then we do not reiterate it again here. Low bandwidth users should note there are numerous images contained in this article.
We had the pleasure to interview Daniel Erickson of BioWare about companions, warzones, player ships, party dynamics, and more.
The video portion is above, and the transcription is after the jump. Enjoy.
For those interested, IGN will be doing a live review of Star Wars: The Old Republic at E3. It will air at 6:40pm EDT, 3:40pm PDT, or 11:40pm GMT. It will be 20 min review. The link is posted below.
IGN Live at E3
Update: The interview was short but we were able to get a few things from it below.
- Warzone combat referred to as chaotic. Conflict is key, many more warzones are possible.
- Player Ships function as Player Houses by James Ohlen. Looks that players will not have a house in addition to a ship.
- Truly an MMO, combination of story and elements of an MMO, not a single player game
We were lucky enough to be the first group to see Star Wars: The Old Republic on the E3 show floor today. Before getting our hands on time and interviews were treated to an official presentation by BioWare's Blaine Christine. In addition to seeing the new trailer, we learned all about the marketing focus during this years Electronic Entertainment Expo.
