Not too sure how many of you have heard of the latest Star Wars MMORPG, and no it is not a revamp of SW: Galaxies. It is a collaboration between LucasArts and Bioware. The setting is around 3000 years before the Star Wars movies and 300 years after KOTOR.

Just watched the game trailer, and all I have to say is WOW!. Here is the URL.

Unfortunately, when this game comes out it looks like my time on WoW will be severely curtailed. But of course many people say that every time a new game comes out, but they eventually come back to WoW.

I said WOW after watching the trailers for AOC and LOTRO and here I am still play WoW.

I'm going to try. I'm a sucker for new games with pretty trailers. I also expect Muircar, Gundar, and "Blurak" to join me. :wink:

My roomates are going to play it so I probably will too for a bit. Age of Conan was fun too but it just wasn't ready enough to release and eventually the lag spikes from new patches made it unplayable. Wow is always here for me :)

yeah, my bad for dragging people to AOC.

I'm still holding my breath for a Harry Potter MMO. I know, I'm 12. But how awesome would it be?! The different factions could be like....the different schools that they featured in the fourth book, Beuxbuttons and Durmstrang. And the different classes would be different types of wizarding, like transformation or dark arts, etc etc. And and PVP could be quidditch. It's perfect, I tell you, perfect.

Bioware has always made good games, and they'll put the same level of quality into this one.

As always, I'll give the beta a shot.

Also, they're an Edmontonian software company. FTW.

Not a MMO but Star Wars related

Always like to add some input (kid safe)

Yeah, I'll probably try the Star Wars MMO when it comes out. I enjoyed the KOTR games on the XBOX.

I thought Blurak was the name of your alter-ego in AOC.

I believe that Shaiden of Arctic Raiders also works at Bioware.

The trailer looks quite good, but I'm always skeptical of pretty trailers. They seldom deliver on actual gameplay. I'm not a huge fan of the Star Wars universe, but I've been dying for a decent SF MMO, so I may give it a try.

It would really have to be impressive on game mechanics, playability and balance for me to be interested enough to actually pay for it. I've played a lot of different MMOs, and it seems to me that certain IP holders like to meddle in the process (*cough*LucasArts*cough*) which usually ends up creating a disappointing product.

Shiabre, have you been following the development of Jumpgate Evolution?
