Watch An Early Star Wars: The Old Republic Flashpoint

In addition to lengthy solo-friendly story quests, Star Wars: The Old Republic will be fleshed out with group-focused instances called "flashpoints." A few weeks ago at Comic-Con, BioWare showed off one of the game's first flashpoints for Republic players, the Esseles, and now you can check it out for yourself.

This video includes some story segments, plenty of combat, and even some developer commentary on this difficult mission where players must protect an important diplomat from Imperials. Watch the full 13-minute video below.

  • I can never really get into MMORPGs. I see how someponies can get into this, but it's really hard for me to sit on my flank for 5 hours straight doing the same thing until I level up. Maybe The Old Republic could be different.

  • sweet! glad i got this

  • Can't wait for this to come out but problems could arise if you can't repeat the instance.
  • I aready love this game.

  • This is incredible, love the dialogue choices and morality. also those are great graphics for an mmo.

  • ...that persons name was aness...

  • I'm wondering whether to buy this game or not. It looks kind of good, but not enough details have been released for me to know yet. And, for whatever reason, when I first heard about Galaxies, I thought it seemed like a more interesting game. A couple of my friends are getting The Old Republic, so I might join the bandwagon.
  • Im getting this game i dont even care it looks sooo awesome! Im not huge on MMOs but im gonna get this and really try to dig into it. It looks like it has a lot of potential kinda has that feel of KOTOR but updated to be be an MMO.

  • I dont like the idea of one person in a group of 4 deciding what karma points the rest of that party is going to get .....
  • That's cool. But I don't play PC games much or MMOs. I hope Bioware makes an RPG in the future with a multiplayer mode like this; all co-op instanced stuff, like a Phantasy Star Online or Borderlands, but with this multiplayer conversation mechanic.

  • Game is going to be amazing on my new Alienware with 23inch Hd monitor. Quad core i7 and duo nvidia 560's with 10k rpm!

  • waiting

  • will this game work with a 360 controller?

  • This one is going to ruin my social life.  Screw Wow, Eve, and Rift, this is the MMO i've been waiting for.

  • No Mandalorian will ever be better than Mandalore! (aka Canderous Ordo)
  • I'm totally hyping myself up for an MMO only to be let down after a month when it becomes yet another grindy MMO! Yes!!!
  • So this is what dreams are made of.... Magical.

  • I love how none of the party members, not even the Jedi, had any problem choosing the dark side option in the engineering bay and thus killing several innocent people. All in all this was a pretty cool video, I'll admit I'm getting more and more excited for this game, I just hope it comes out sometime in 2011.
  • time to build a new PC.
