SWTOR: Is this lack of communication normal?

swtor-is-this-lack-of-communication-normal

Eric Musco took on the forums earlier today to address the lack of communication from the SWTOR Developers. Hey folks, I thought this thread was a good opportunity to talk about the communication as of late. Although I may not post every day, I am definitely here, reading the forums. I know that there is frustration right now because you are all eager to learn more about what is coming in Knights of the Eternal Throne. We just aren’t ready to talk about Eternal Throne yet, and so I can’t answer your questions at this time. But, I do want to make sure you know when we will begin really talking about Eternal Throne. That date is October 7th. The day/night of our New York Comic-con Cantina is when you can expect details about Eternal Throne. Once we have crossed the 7th (and through launch), I will be able to…

Obsidian Create Stunning Star Wars Environments

obsidian-create-stunning-star-wars-environments

Pillars of Eternity developer Obsidian have a soft spot for Star Wars, or at least some of their artists do, who – reportedly in their spare time – put their skills and the power of the Unreal 4 engine to use, creating some superb Star Wars environments, which aren’t matched details-wise by any of the movies or games of the Star Wars universe. Considering the level of detail and image quality achieved by some of Star Wars: Battlefront’s incarnations, that is quite a statement to make, but it holds true nonetheless. The said environments are rendered in real time and they can actually be downloaded and explored. Obviously though, one does need a powerful computer to do that. Also involved in the project – besides other members of the Obsidian development team – was senior environment artist Jason Lewis, who did not shy away from going into all sorts of…

SWTOR Lead Composer Comments on Datamined KOTET Music

SWTOR Lead Composer Comments on Datamined KOTET Music

That feeling when you post datamined music and then the composer comes along to comment… yeah, that happened. User Jedipedia posted a 1 hour no-spoiler feed of music from KotET and lead composer Jesse Harlin stopped in for a comment. You can see the full thread with links to the music here.  Basically, the data mined music files are just the MIDI demos that were later replaced by an actual live performance. Honestly, those demo files don’t sound half bad and they definitely get us excited for the real thing that is coming soon. As for Harlin’s comment: “Hi, SWTOR. Lead composer Jesse Harlin here. Perhaps I can help to give some context on this for you all. This happened last time with KotFE and now it’s happened again with KotET. Just so that everyone knows, these are the rough demos that eventually turn into the final tracks. We headed to Nashville…

New Way to Design Your SWTOR Stronghold

  Players love strongholds and designing them is the best part for many players. Some players have gotten extremely creative with the things they design for their strongholds as well. There are also some really cool, fleshed-out ideas like this one, and there are also some great ideas over here. Barithor has some fun ideas like maps, structure hooks, and more.

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,…
