Star Wars: The Old Republic

Don't believe there's a dedicated thread, and since they're starting to release information now, I figure it's time for one.

Alright, the guild is created. They don't allow you to use numbers in the name, so it's called "The Right Fifty Three". You can use the link below to search for the guild and apply. Or you can PM me your email address and I'll shoot you an invite.

Looks like the Friday update came early. Really nice video on what was one of my favorite things from my brief time in beta: the companions. I don't think I can really describe just how awesome I thought they were. It's something you've just got to see for yourself. They aren't quite as fully realized as, say, Mass Effect crewmates, but I thought they were so far beyond standard MMO pets that it wasn't even funny. As the video mentions, they do level up with you, and they do acquire new skills along the way. You can tell them exactly what skills you want them to use, and best of all, they have personality. They'll interject themselves into conversations, they'll occasionally make random comments as you move through the world. It's just...really cool. I was really impressed by them during the beta weekend, at least the two I was able to see (1 smuggler, 1 bounty hunter).

Wait, the Chiefsplanet guild is going to be "good guys"? Playing on a PVE server? Say it ain't so. Might have to create an Empire guild on a PVP server myself. Think I'll name it, "The Process".

I didn't see it, but i would guess it's yet another (mis)quote of the 2012 comment made during the investor call earlier in the week. Which is actually something the EA financial people have been saying for months. So it's not really news.

I think realistically the only way the game slips to 2012 is if they have significant hardware problems with the larger-scale stress testing in upcoming test weekends.

I think there are some recent signs that it's coming sooner rather than later. It seems to be that they've shifted their marketing into overdrive this week. The game is being advertised everywhere right now (there's a pretty cool banner ad/trailer on IGN.com right now). They had the companion update on Gamespot that I linked last night and now today there's an interview up on Gamersutra about BioWare "wrapping up The Old Republic".

So I may be misreading things, but it does seem like they're moving swiftly in the direction of the launch push.

I think we'll get a release date as soon as they're satisfied with the stress testing (which won't start this weekend), maybe as soon as two weeks.

Just my own guess, but I'm still thinking they go live mid- to late-November.

New beta invites started going out today (no I didn't get one). So (external) testing is starting on the new build tonight.

Found something interesting digging through the HUGE patch notes, something I didn't expect at all. They apparently weren't kidding when they were talking about having more flashpoints, because they introduced two new ones in this build that I'd previously never heard so much as a whisper about: 'Bringing Down the Hammer' and 'The Tomb Opens'.

No idea what level they are. As I understand it, up to this point you had the starter flashpoints at 9-10 ('The Black Talon' for Empire; 'The Esseles' for Republic), intermediate flashpoints around level 30 ('Boarding Party' and 'The Foundry' for Empire; 'Taral V' for Republic') and then the level 50 flashpoint ('Directive 7' for both sides; it's been in beta but I've never seen so much as a screen shot from it to this point). So where the new two fit in, I have no idea, but I think it's pretty exciting that there's more.

Yup, I got the same email. I'm glad we have a release date, but it kind of sucks that it's right before Christmas.

Wow. Almost exactly a month later than I thought. Being extra-cautious with the testing I guess.

Although I suppose you can't get much more "holiday 2011" than December 20th.

Early game access (non) information:

Quote:
We don’t have any new information regarding Early Game Access to share at this time. We know everyone is very excited about the release date announcement (we are, too!) and that you can’t wait to get in the game! The beginning of Early Game Access will depend on a number of factors, including results from our Game Testing Program and Pre-Orders, but there will be multiple days of access. Please make sure you’ve read the Pre-Order FAQ to stay up-to-date on Early Game Access information!


"How will I be able to gain access to the Game in time for Early Game Access?

Customers who have redeemed their Pre-Order Code for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be notified via email prior to the beginning of Early Game Access that the Game client is ready for download. Another email will be sent at the beginning of Early Game Access to inform players that they can now access Star Wars: The Old Republic."

Hey keg, when you were beta testing, were you able to pick your faction and class, or were they dictated to you? Just curious.

There weren't any pre-generated characters my weekend. I chose a character from each faction.

My weekend was basically their first dry run for launch.

Just a minor note, but stupid OCD completionist no-lifers (namely me) will be happy: achievements are in.
Quote:
Achievements have made ship, in fact. They're not going to be the achievements, the crazy achievements that you have to place everywhere that are like, 'Hey if you drink six beers and fart in a cantina' - those are not going the achievements to go in. Version one of the achievement system (will) go in - which is actually doing big, heroic stuff - because there's a ton of great optional content in The Old Republic, like, 'Hey, I went to every world and kicked the world boss's ass.' Those kinds of achievements. That's going to be the level one system.”

Erickson added future achievements will reward repeat visits and some of the more traditional tasks, noting, “People need reasons to go back to planets and run around and do that other stuff, so that will come second.”

When it comes out I'll get it. Let me know what servers you guys are on and junk so we can get a CP Guild going. Though I'll just be a lackey. Don't like important roles.
