Talking Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Future with BioWare’s Charles Boyd

Talking Star Wars The Old Republic's Future with BioWare’s Charles Boyd

We’ve been writing to you about SWTOR since years before the game released. We’ve been there with you each step of the way as the game changed and evolved. So what can we expect to see from the future of SWTOR? That’s a very good question and we’re not the only ones asking it. Den of Geek spoke to BioWare’s Charles Boyd about the future of SWTOR, the latest expansion, and what’s next for the game. You should definitely head on over there and read it in full for yourself but here’s a snippet: Will SWTOR‘s future development continue in this chapter-focused story direction? From a writing standpoint, I think the chapter style is really strong, and has led to a significant improvement in the quality and presentation of the story. My own personal perception is that chapters are most fun when “binged” and played together rather than spread out individually,…

BioWare Says the MMO Market Has Never Been Bigger

BioWare Says the MMO Market Has Never Been Bigger

Are people still playing MMOs? The director of Star Wars: The Old Republic insists that the MMO market has never been bigger. While some of the biggest hitters in the industry, like Blizz’s World of Warcraft, are seeing declining numbers, James Ohlen says it’s a good time to be in the MMO business. “The MMO genre is much bigger than it ever has been before – it’s just that people misunderstand what the genre actually consists of now,” James Ohlen said in an interview with MCV. He goes on to talk about how people once thought MMOs were just for hardcore PC games but the genre has expanded. We see MMO games that don’t call themselves that in the traditional sense. We also see MMOs on different platforms, which wasn’t so common in the past. When you look at things from this perspective, it’s easy to see why one would say the MMO…

Star Wars Fan Film 2016: Renegade Kenobi

Renegade Kenobi

Here’s another Star Wars Fan Film that we really want to share with you. In Renegade Kenobi, Ben Kenobi’s mother encounters a notorious Sith Lord who wants to change the fate of the galaxy. The story is fun and creative, the film is well done for a fan film, and it definitely has a nice Star Wars feel to it. There’s also a fun little Easter egg in there around the 21:00 marker (or a bit after). The lightsaber blade and effects are good looking and were apparently done by hand in After Effects. Sounds like it took awhile but it does look really good. So we don’t want to ruin the story for you. It’s really best that you go ahead and experience it for yourself. You can watch below, as it’s not a super long film. Of course, fans always seem to have varied opinions on these fan…

Millions are Still Playing Star Wars: Battlefront According to EA

Millions are Still Playing Star Wars Battlefront According to EA

Are people still playing Battlefront? Are there as many playing as there were when it first launched? According to EA, millions of people are still playing online shooter Star Wars: Battlefront. EA reported its financial results for the three month period ending 30th June, and during that time 6.6 million played DICE’s Star Wars game. To many players, these stats are surprising since it doesn’t seem like there is as much interest in the game as there was at launch. The Battlefront community seems to have dropped from its high after release in November 2015. Complaints litter the forums and other online communities surrounding the lack of content and depth of the gameplay. While EA may have tried to play on the current popularity of Star Wars to boost the game even more, it still seems to fall flat after you’ve played it for some time. The surprise is that not that…
