SW:TOR Lead Writer Talks Story and Combat

Posted Tue, Mar 30, 2010 by Martuk

G4TV's Adam Sessler recently caught up to Star Wars: The Old Republic (SW:TOR) Lead Writer Daniel Erickson to talk about the story and combat of SW:TOR. Erickson explains the way a player's decision will influence the story and how group decisions can lead to conflicts symbolic of old pen and paper RPGs. The story allows for a lot of different options for single and groups of players to figure out the best way of solving.

Another subject the two discussed was combat. While the team initially took a more traditional approach to combat, the initial combat was scrapped for not feeling enough like Star Wars. Instead, the team made combat a little more cinematic. Click here to watch the full interview.

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.
