Picking apart the first Star Wars: The Old Republic video piece by piece

Kyle Horner

The first video for Star Wars: The Old Republic is out now, and with its release comes the first of many posts and features wherein we look at every possible angle or detail in the new information and try to discern what it could all really mean. So let's take a look at the list we've put together for the very first in-game footage:

  • Kel'dor are playable. (possible)
  • Bounty Hunter is a player class. (possible)
  • Companions fight with you in combat. (confirmed)
  • The art style picked by BioWare works much better in motion than in screens. (confirmed)
  • BioWare is holding back on a big game feature yet to be revealed. (speculation)
  • Combat similar to KOTOR, but much faster-paced and with a lot more "Whoa" attacks and effects. (confirmed/possible)
  • Players who go extreme lightside or darkside may not be able to play with each other. (speculation)
  • BioWare is totally psyched to be working with LucasArts on making another Star Wars game. (confirmed, like totally)
We're anxiously awaiting the next video so that we may once again devour it with a geeky hunger like no other.
