What's Happening

Video Preview: The Old Republic

We've finally got original video of BioWare's upcoming Star Wars MMO to share with you. Game Informer's Adam Biessener, Tim Turi, and Matt Miller have each logged in extended time with the beta, watch the video below to hear their thoughts and to see new footage from their experience with the much-anticipated game.

Please note that this footage is from the beta, which contains a bug that removes lip-syncing from certain sections of the dungeon.

I wasn't a believer in The Old Republic until I spent significant time with the beta. Now I know what's on my calendar for the months immediately following its December 20 release date. The combat may be a syllabus from an MMORPG 101 class, but BioWare's brilliant storytelling is as good in TOR as it is anywhere else.

For more Star Wars: The Old Republic, check out Miller's massive preview from an earlier beta.

Comments
  • Looks good, but I think that Guild Wars 2 will be a big competition for me

  • Ben, if you ever appear on screen, you know it's your job to cause a disturbance, right? =p

  • this looks solid enough, and as much as i love Star Wars, i just can't see myself getting into the game.

  • cant wait. this looks like KotOR 3-10 with mulitplayer added in there for flavor. glad they went this route. can play the game with my wife and bro and not have to worry about doing PUGs just to clear a 4-5 man.

  • Still waiting for Knights of the Old Republic 3.

  • still can not believe that it is a pc only

  • glad to see ben reeves contribute nothing and sit in the background like a chump

  • I got to beta test as well, the game is pretty good, and this is coming from someone who generally hates mmo games. I think it's probably one of the better games to come out in a while, and bioware always makes good games

  • Baller

  • Companion system is an interesting approach to the the issue of class scarcity. But I'm still not interested ToR with and Guild Wars 2 coming out soon.

  • It sounds so fun!

  • "Its cause I'm a Zazbrak isnt it?" XD lol

  • Mod

    Nice dialogue, you guys. Two friends of mine and I are gonna form a group when this comes out so I'm looking even more forward to it.

  • this looks really cool :)

  • Thank you guys so much for posting this. I was already starting to get neurotic about those fragments. Now that I've found the required 30 I don't have to worry about it again.

  • Cannot wait to get my early access and start investing some time with this... I'm wondering how many character slots we'll get.

  • i'd really like to see a reiner and phil episode of the old republic since unfortunately I probly won't be able to play this

  • Ben looks like he's having so much fun lol

  • Excellent Preview thanks guys :) I totally agree with you, we might have ourselves one of the best MMOs coming up! See you there.

  • Video looks great! I can't wait until this is released!
