Star Wars Old Republic - We will be different

“When World of Warcraft came out, everybody thought, ‘No, the market is only this big, because that’s as big as EverQuest was.’ Blizzard showed that it could be much larger. Our goal is to show that by bringing storytelling to the genre that we can attract an even wider audience. Plus, we have the benefit of this huge brand, which has done very, very well for nearly 30 years.”

LucasArts executive Tom Nichols

Who in their right mind says they ARE competing with World of Warcraft...

THAT is TOTALLY different.

Holy Crud!

I'm don't consider myself a Star Wars fan even though I've seen all of the movies. This isn't a game that will appeal to me but it will be interesting to see how things play out.

If they manage to evolve the MMO storytelling to a point where it actually takes advantage of the multiplayer nature of the game, I will most likely try it out.

The Star Wars IP does not make any difference to me, but the theme could be fun to play. I do not think I have played any Bioware games (not that I recall at least), so I do not have any specific expecations on what the game will be like.
