"Beyond Solo" SWTOR Panel Breakdown

Posted Sat, Jul 24, 2010 by Savanja

Fans of The Old Republic managed to shut out a good chunk of media (including our own Jeff "Ethic" Woleslagle) who had hoped to get into the Star Wars: The Old Republic panel today at San Diego Comic Con 2010 proving once again that Comic Con is definitely a fan driven event. The downside is that finding solid early media coverage is a little scarce but those of us who couldn't attend the event will take what we can get!

Gamespot has a small breakdown of what the panel covered. Questing, open worlds and, of course, storylines were the topic.

Quests aren't limited to players' individual stories, however. The team discussed the concept of world arcs, which take place on a more inclusive scale and involve players joining up to complete a prolonged mission. The BioWare trio offered an example of the Battle of Hoth from the Empire Strikes Back film as one example of a world arc, where there are numerous conflicts and several principal characters to engage with.

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.
