Exclusive – Star Wars: The Old Republic Lead Writer Interviewed at gamescom 2010

BioWare is known for their storytelling and gamers everywhere are waiting with bated breath for that storytelling know-how to be implemented in the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMOG. To that end, Ten Ton Hammer dispatched numerous bounty hunters to track down SW:TOR’s Lead Writer Daniel Erickson. While elusive, he proved no match for our bounty hunters and he was captured. After being brought to our secret base located within an undisclosed asteroid field, he began to give us the answers we sought.

Daniel fielded an array of questions that touched on many topics. Among these was the situation with beta for the game, the possibility of an issue zero comic book, the nature of space combat, the vision behind the game, and licensing. All of his answers make me more excited for SW:TOR than a nerf-herder!

Don't be a nerf-herder! Watch Daniel's 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.
