First off, yea!
LucasArts and BioWare on Tuesday announced their forthcoming massively multiplayer online game, Star Wars: The Old Republic. The game takes place chronologically about 300 years after the previous Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic franchise and about 3,500 years before the Star Wars films.
No release timeline yet, but this will effectively be the next game in the Knights of the Old Republic series, and I am stoked. I’m not into MMO games, as I generally don’t want to compete against the 14-year old kiddies who have plenty of time on their hands to play hours and hours a day building up their characters, completing quests, etc. However, for KoTOR, I would make the exception. I still won’t be able to play hours and hours, but I’ll try the game.
I love the KoTOR series. I’ve got both the original 2003 Game of the Year winner, and the 2005 follow-up. They were both fun, and great looking. There’s so many more stories that could be told in that period, so I’ll pay the monthly subscription to play this.
I repeat. Yea!
I don’t know. The KOTOR MMO looks a bit lackluster to me. I simply wish Bioware or Obsidian or even the big boys at LucasArts created a stand-alone third KOTOR game with a story. The first two were incredible, and I loved the immenseness the games provided to gamers. Here’s to a *hopefully* good game.
