SWTOR Preview Explores Tython and the Jedi Guardian

Posted Thu, Dec 16, 2010 by Martuk

Many fans have wondered what it would be like to play Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) right now, but few have gotten that chance. However, G4TV managed to infiltrate BioWare's epic MMOG and had seven hours to experience all the content they could explore and conquer. Seven hours seems like a decent amount of time to get started, but for an MMOG, that's hardly getting your feet wet.

Seven hours and we barely even scratched the surface. So scant was our footprint on the Old Republic that not even the Force would know we were ever there. Eight levels, dozens of quests, a handful of story missions and we didn’t even board the vessel to Coruscant where the game truly begins.

Luckily, G4TV's preview does provide some first-hand insight into what it's like to play on one of the many worlds in SWTOR as a Jedi Guardian and how the story and quests unfold within the game. Check out the full preview for all the details.

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.
