As you know, fans of SWTOR are excited for Knights of the Fallen Empire, present company included. It’s definitely time for something new and exciting to the game and we think this expansion is going to bring a lot of that. In fact, we expect it to also bring in new players as well as old players who have quit and decide to return. Of course, that is one of the purposes of a video game expansion and it’s an important part of a good game marketing strategy but that doesn’t mean it’s always effective or executed correctly. This time, we think Bioware has really put the right talent, time and attention into this expansion.
Carbonite time skip, new story, new gear, new options… there is a lot to immerse yourself in with this one and people who play Bioware RPGs are most often looking for that story. They want to be emotionally invested in their character. They want to immerse themselves in the story. This is what Bioware is trying to give us with this one and it’s easy to see why so many people are getting excited. There will always be haters who cry out, “hype, hype!” but honestly, I’m feeling pretty good about this one. I think this expansion is going to be well worth at least trying out.
Here we have the reaction video from IGN right after the live announcement of the expansion from EA. See what these guys have to say about it and as always, we want to hear your thoughts in the comments.
