E3 2010 - Star Wars: The Old Republic

It is another week and once again I am going to write about how excited I am for BioWare's MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic to finally grace us gamers with it's presence. This week thanks to E3 I now have a reasons that everyone should be excited for. Some critics of the game, namely old Star Wars Galaxies veterans, have been concerned with the lack of player housing. Today BioWare has gotten rid of any reason to worry about where you're characters will virtually sleep while you aren't out exploring the galaxy. Because it looks like every character on TOR will be getting their own ship!

What will you be able to use your ship for exactly? Well... we don't exactly know yet, but BioWare did say that we would be able to use them as a base of operations, as well as a way to get around the galaxy. Will we be able to let fellow players board our ship and possibly show off trophies and the fruit of our endeavors? We will just have to wait and see to get those questions answered possibly later in the week.

For more Star Wars news, hit the break.

The other treat BioWare gave us all was a new cinematic trailer, and just like last years for lack of a better term IT KICKED ASS! Something that most forum goers have been complaining about to BioWare is that they seemed to have a bias towards the Sith Empire.

With all the updates and trailers highlighting the Empire how could you blame them. Well the new trailer changed everything as many predicted. This trailer rather than showing soldiers of the Republic getting torn to shreds, showed the Republic kicking ass and taking


Hopefully these new updates are enough to quell all the nay-sayey cries for a while, and hopefully we will have even more news for you and maybe even a review of a hands on demo for you later in the week. Only time will tell but needless to say BioWare means business and is looking to make their mark the MMO genre spring 2011.
