Just when we thought E3′s videological seed was spent, Bioware release their multiplayer footage for The Old Republic, which I’ve posted below. The blurb explains: “Commander Narlock readies his troops for an Imperial assault. As he does, all four Republic classes; a Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight, Smuggler, and Trooper join together to assist in fighting off the attack.” And it’s pretty much as you’d expect for an MMO of this kind, except, perhaps, for that little Bioware dialogue sequence. No surprises in the combat bit, but I think SWTOR’s strength could be in the story and companion cleverness rather than doing anything mechanistically interesting too far outside of the standard MMO template.
