SW:TOR Devs Talk About Endgame and Features

Posted Tue, Mar 23, 2010 by Martuk

MMORPG recently got the chance to interview interview Bioware CEO Ray Muzyka and Bioware VP Greg Zeschuk about the success of Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins and future plans for the games. The two also took the time to field questions about their upcoming MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic. With newer MMOGs having to rely more and more on endgame content, BioWare is trying out a few new ideas that Muzyka refers to as "innovative," while also keeping standard MMOG features that players expect.

We're trying to do some innovative different things, while also doing some things that are standard expectations for MMO players. We look at the best features for combat, exploration, progression and try to emulate and build on those as well as innovate on those features. We're innovating story, we're also innovating some things around end game with re-playability trying to encourage players to continue to play, all those things.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.

The high-fantasy setting isn't the only thing that would make Game of Thrones a fantastic story-based MMO.

A horribly-abused system from gaming's past is all but eradicated from current titles.
