The Old Republic

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 6:23 pm

Officially announced today, after months of rumours, is the new MMO “The Old Republic“. When news that Bioware were working with Lucas Arts on an MMO, it did not take an industry insider to guess that Bioware would set the game in the version of The Star Wars universe that they created for their RPG “Knights of the Old Republic”; a universe set hundreds of years before the events in the films. KOTOR is one of my favourite PC games, with a deeply intriguing story that features a jaw dropping twist mid story. Since Bioware are also responsible for Neverwinter Knights, which also sits in my all time list, I was excited by the possibility of an MMO in the Old Republic. There is no date, or even a vague suggestion of a timescale. MMOs tend to take several years to get to release, and even longer to be actually finished, so there is no chance of me leaving EQ2 just yet.
