Default Star Wars: The Old Republic

Not sure if this has a thread yet or not, as the search function is crashing my router, but new trailer of the Star Wars MMORPG from Bioware:

I've been really iffy about this, but..I think it may be worth getting. Hoping for gameplay stuff to come out soon.

Hoping there's space battles, and that troopers aren't just free kills for jedi classes.

If anyone in the world has the potential to outdo Blizzard, it's Bioware.

I can't get on the TOR site to check, but in this new trailer is the second Sith guy wearing Revan's mask from the newest timeline video?

I heard this wasn't done by the same guys as Galaxies, or something?

Yup! And since I loved Knights of the Old Republic I'm pretty sure I'll love this!

Not really even the same kind of game, but I don't expect it to suck.

I don't think it'll suck...but I have a LOT of worries for this. Like your ship being nothing but a quick travel.

I'm with skeebs on this one. cautious optimistic.

I'm going Empire. The Rebels can suck my dick.

Although, Empire just looks like droids while the... I guess Republic, is for whatever reason still using the clone trooper outfits. Even though I'm pretty that by the time the Republic became the Empire, clone troopers were all under the command of the Empire and thus would fuel the future transition into stormtroopers. Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not too up on the history.

I am going to play the motherfucking shit out of this. I fucking love Star Wars.

And Bioware making this just seals the deal.

Also, I'd play Sith. Sith war masks are fucking boss.

This takes place thousands of years before the films

The Empire in this is a faction attempting to revive the fallen Sith Empire, whereas the Republic is the same galactic alliance shown in the prequel films, IF I'M CORRECT

EDIT: As Zhao said earlier, it's 300 years after the events of the Knights of the Old Republic games, if you played those

This is the Old Republic, not the movie one. I think those are just straight-up republic troopers, not clones. If there were any clone batches made that weren't Jango Fett, I haven't heard of them.

Or Rud could post before I did. Whatever.

The ghetto Sith are silly. I always liked the idea of just the master and the apprentice being the only Sith, instead of a bunch of douches with red lightsabres. Not complaining though.

I'd like to point out it bothers me that I seem to be seeing the trooper armor on the republic guys, and either old or new versions of the Destroyer droid. Not to mention that the small ships at the end look a bit like Arc fighters.

I like to point out that Bioware was probably given a thumbs up to do whatever the fuck they want, just as long they sell.

I'm calling Vader fighting Darth Raven riding Wookies right now.
