BioWare just published a short video showing some of the highlights from this years Pax East. The video provides footage of fans rushing to the SWTOR booth, as well as fans standing in line and talking about what they experienced. We also get to see clips of Daniel Erickson and Stephen Reid at the Space Combat Demonstration. The video definitely captures the excitement of being at PAX East. Check it out below:
This photo was mailed to us along with the SWTOR Class Background Sheets we posted last week. Unfortunately it got lost, but is now it’s found. There is still some confusion about if it is leaked material that the Leakerz guys are behind or if it is PAX material. But our source tells us that it is takes with a mobile phone at this years pax east – and we choose to belive so, because sharing beta leaks is bad m’kay.
A attendant at this years PAX East was quick to take a picture of all class background sheets. A really interesting read as it gives some inside to the class as well as the story behind each class. Off course this is not in game screen shots, so some of the pictures might be hard to read: EDIT: apparently these Pictures comes from a focus test on leakerz.net. Check below comment. Also here is some HD footage of (almost) the entire gameplay experience of SWTOR at PAX East 2011. :
TorSyndicate posted a few movies from the Developer Meet And Greet at years Pax East. People were attendance had a chance to ask the devs questions about SWTOR. It seemed like all the guest had a good time, and the camera man was good at getting footage of some of the larger upcoming guilds like “Eternal Vigilance“, “Saints of the old republic“, Requiem etc as well as bloggers from the SWTOR fansite sphere.

Looking through our Pax 2011 coverage, we discovered we diden’t show any Trooper gameplay except what was shown in th Taral V Developer Walkthrough. Luckily the guys over at TorWars have a video showing some DPSing and Tanking with the Trooper. The trooper in SWTOR will be one of the main tanking characters on the Republic side. For those that experienced Star Wars Galaxies, Trooper will be almost exactly like the Commando profession of that game. Troopers are ideal for tanking purposes because not only can they stand up to a lot of punishment, but they can deal out enough damage in an area to attract agro towards themselves.

The guys over at Torwars got their hands on some more Star Wars: The old Republic Pax gameplay. This time they show us some Jedi Consular gameplay wich I have missed all weekend. So here it is Jedi Consular Taral V gameplay footage: Source
More and more SWTOR Reviews are coming in now. So far the verdict have been mixed, but some reporters are not MMORPG fans – so it don’t have to meen much. Below you can read a small snip of each review, and find a direct link to the source. desktopreview.com: Generally a harsh critic, I’ll admit that I had a hard time finding things that I didn’t like about the Old Republic. I mean, it’s Knights of the Old Republic, except prettier and with more classes, powers, and party members (that are human, no less). That’s a winning formula. If I had one gripe, it’s that Bioware still can’t seem to nail down an official release date, tentatively citing a Q2 2011 release. Source g4tv.com: I have to say, I was expecting something very different to anything I’ve ever played before, and it seemed that the classes we played (and the way…
Suddenly, a familiar song. Then, you’re off your chair in one exquisite movement. Wondering, searching, sniffing the wind like a daffelled deer. Has God heard your little prayer? Will Cinderella dance again? And then, suddenly, the crowds part. And there he is. Sleek. Stylish. Radiant with charisma. It’s only, he’s on the telephone. But then, so are you. And he comes towards you, the moves of a jungle cat. And although you quite correctly sense that he is gay, like most devastatingly handsome single men of his age are, you think, ‘What the hell? Life goes on.’ Maybe there won’t be marriage. Maybe there won’t be sex. But by God, there will be dancing!
Webgamingcentral must have been standing around the SWTOR Booth through out all the convention, as they keep on publishing more and more material from Pax east 2011. This time we get to see some Imperial Agent gameplay.
