KOTOR MMO (working title)
E3 2009: Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO Revealed
Written By

BioWare and LucasArts came out during the EA press conference to announce the new MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.  Playing the game from the different sides (Empire vs. Republic) will give you completely different experiences.  Each character in the game will also have unique voices, which will make this game possibly the biggest voice-over project in the history of gaming.

The trailer is extremely impressive, which features some good light saber dueling between the factions.  The previously announced Star Wars MMO has been mentioned to be on the XBox 360 in the past, but nothing was mentioned at the press conference.  We will make sure to let you know as soon as we do.  But, what we do know for sure is that the game looks absolutely beautiful.

NOTE: As stated above, this game has only been rumored in the past to be on the Xbox 360 as well as the PC.  Nothing was mentioned in regards to the platforms that the game will be on, but we wanted to report it to you just in case.  Just wanted to clear up any confusion in case I wasn't clear enough in the original post.

If it requires a monthly subscription, you can count me out. I already pay for LIVE, I'm not paying for another subscription!

Is it me or was that Darth Reven in the trailer. Before this Alan Wake was my favorite bit of eye candy/gameplay etc... but OMG do I need to play this game.

Only issue is I hate PC's/PC games and don't play them... it's tough being a MAC User.

I actually don't really like MMO type games, but that battle video was very well designed. Most games lack the action in the cutscenes or movies, but this should be interesting to follow.

So far they've only mentioned a PC release, but we'll have to wait and see I suppose. The game will have a monthly sub as they, ie Bioware/Lucasarts needs the money to maintain their server and this will be separate from LIVE if it does indeed come to the 360. Don't want to pay, then you can't play. It's an MMO after all, not a single player game.

After what they did to SWG with the damn NGE i have lost faith in star wars MMO but who knows this might be good enough to get me involved again (shame swg turned out how it did seeing i'm a massive SW fan)

Still think KOTOR 3 would of been better :/

I really hope this comes to the 360 no monthly fee that would make this possible game of the year for me i loved the first two and if they can pull off a MMO version of KOTOR on the 360 i will be extreamly happy.

Dammit, and that was the end of my life.

I squandered years on SW: Galaxies before the combat update that wrecked it, and have enjoyed a somewhat normal life since.

And now there's another supreme-looking SW MMO coming out.

Curse my lack of willpower.

Already knew about this ages ago, seems interesting, but for me, I'm going to have DC Universe online instead, even if DCUO isn't on the 360....well, I am getting a PS3 at some point in time XD

1. It is for now PC only.
2. Announced? This was announced to much fanfare last fall...
3. The great graphics are obviously pre-rendered. The game looks nice, but nowhere near that trailer...

I think subscription based games should ignore the check for gold. They want money for nothing and their chicks for free.

KOTOR 1 and 2 = Amazing
Mass Effect = Amazing

If this game is half as good as those it would be worth buying. Yet I still won't get it if there's a monthly fee. Please no monthly fee!

Im pretty sure it was Darth Malak in the trailer. Revan is the player character, although it could have just been the effects of the dark side on any jedi. Looks like him though.

#55 - Yes and no.

Star Wars Galaxies was immensely popular and mine and many's favorite game ever.

But SOE made a massive misstep in the constant struggle for MMO improvement, completely changing the combat/profession/experience system when "it weren't broke" thereby alienating the majority of the community.

The game was THE SHIT before "Combat Update 3". And that was Sony Online and the devs of Everquest.

This is BioWare. Don't care about monthly fees or if it does wind up staying PC-exclusive. It's a must-play for any SW geek of my caliber.
