How New Technologies Will Change the Face of Star Wars Games

Source: Wikimedia Commons The last few decades have seen video game technologies develop at an incredible rate, going from milestone to milestone in a matter of years. As the world became increasingly interconnected in the 2000s, video games too have allowed people to instantly connect with one another across continents in real time with online gaming. The seminal Star Wars: Battlefront was released for this generation of consoles and allowed players to control a single soldier as part of a much larger army – pitting two teams against each other. Now in 2017, an embryonic technology is emerging in the form of virtual reality and the first few releases are likely to completely revolutionise the gaming experience. Where home consoles put games in players’ living rooms and handheld consoles brought them into our hands, virtual reality instead immerses the player fully inside the game. New downloadable content for the Star…

SWTOR Season 7 Update

Eric Musco too on the official forums to  explain why it took the SWTOR Developers so damn long to release the Top 96 pvp titles for Season 7. Season 7 Update | 01.13.2017, 02:46 PM   Hey folks, Let’s talk about Season 7. We have just finished our full investigation of Season 7 and a few things have happened. All users who were found to be win-trading, hacking, botting, etc. have had their Season 7 ratings wiped out on all of their characters, they have been removed from the leaderboards, and appropriate ToS action has been levied against their account. With those actions being taken, we have gone ahead and sent the top 96 titles to the top performers of Season 7, so be sure to check your mailbox. We wanted to explain a little bit about why this process delayed the Season 7 rewards. In past seasons we started…

Should Star Wars Expand its Gaming Horizons?

Star Wars has enjoyed a revitalisation to their franchise with the launch of a new series of films, beginning in 2015 with The Force Awakens. The trend continued with Rogue One which was released at the end of last year, with both movies enjoying great success at the box office with the latter surpassing the $800m mark following its release before Christmas. One of the most prominent avenues of the series’ success has been the fruitful transition of the franchise on to several gaming platforms. Beginning with the Empire Strikes Back on Atari in 1982, two years following the release of the film, the series has gone from strength to strength, and has even spawned several spin-offs in all formats, including shoot ‘em-ups, RPG and action-adventure. Where’s the Star Wars Slot Game? However, for all the success the series has enjoyed across multiple platforms, one area it has not strayed…
