The official announcement has come for the new space game, Galactic Starfighter, and players are asking a lot of questions about how it will work. For example, people are wondering how you will get into the new space game. How will it be integrated into the current game system and how will it affect players are just joining SWTOR or who are just playing the trial.
It looks like it will be something like the vehicle-based F2P shooters out there today that are so popular. And on that note, how will BioWare keep the shooter fans from joining SWTOR just to try out the Galactic Starfighter? And do they want to keep these players out? Perhaps they are looking at it as one more way to bring new player demographics in?
There is already a system in place that means new players don’t have to download the entire game client just to start playing but will this trial client contain the GS access? Would players need to work their way through all the starter content before they gain access to the space game?
How do you feel about new players joining the game and the new space game? Do you think new players should be able to access the game without doing much of the base story?
