[BD] Star Wars The Old Republic trailer shows some Jedi action

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Quote:
When Star Wars Galaxies came out, the MMO made the huge mistake of making players work extremely hard to achieve the status of Jedi Knight. That won't be the case for BioWare's upcoming and long awaited MMO Star Wars The Old Republic. In the newest trailer released for the game, we get to see how the Jedi character progresses in the game via different types of armor.

But that's not important. What's important is that this pure gameplay clip shows lots of Jedi action with single and dual light sabers making short work of a Jedi's enemies. It doesn't get better than that.

I agree

I miss the way that game use to be ....

Edit: in the quote it mentions players had to work hard to become Jedi which I think was one of the best aspects of the game other than the crafting and PVP.

It saved the Jedi for the elite, hard working players. I got my Jedi right before the Combat Upgrade.

I've already made a guild for SWTOR.

It's cool that they made a public and private guild forum for user created guilds.

I played the game at PAX and plan on picking it up when it came out.

Whether I will enjoy or keep playing is to be determined.

Not very impressed by the trailer either. Are the graphics really that poor?? This game's visuals and mechanics look like that should of come out in 2004 with WoW, not 2011. Disappointing!
