We talk a lot about SWTOR here. The entire site was built upon it back in our early days as we awaited the release of the game. So it’s fun then to see things like this short documentary about the making of SWTOR. This BioWare Story from Complex introduces us to the brains behind the game. We hear from the directors, writers and other key players of BioWare’s SWTOR team and they tell us about how they were first interested in Star Wars and what impact it had on their world. This then, helps us to see the impact this had on SWTOR. There’s a nod to Knights of the Old Republic, then they explain how they go in their own direction from SWTOR.
Some of this might be info you already knew if you’re a big nerd who followed this game from the beginning but other parts will definitely be new to you, especially when they talk about their own personal influences and how those played into the game. It’s definitely worth the watch and coming in at under 20 minutes, it’s not going to take up a lot of your time.
