[Spoilers] Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion
« on: 06/12/15, 12:00:32 PM »
The largest story-driven expansion to date, Knights of the Fallen Empire, marks a renewed focus on cinematic storytelling in Star Wars: The Old Republic. The expansion will deliver on the hallmarks of what makes a great BioWareâ„¢ game: new worlds to explore, new companions to recruit, and a dynamic story that players will be able to shape based on the choices they make.

I really hope they can keep that marketing promise.

I have high hopes, but it might not end out as picture-perfect as they claim it to be. Though, that said, they've hit all the right notes on this expansion plus the ziost patch(es). Also, that's an -excellent- name for an expansion in my opinion!

Here's to hoping for more delicious open-world places to RP.

New companions ought to be interesting. However, I kinda hoped they would do more for the ones we have.

I'm going to be at E3 next Tuesday, and while the odds of me actually getting my hands anywhere NEAR anything at EA's booth, I'll pop in and see if they're actually showing anything off there about SWTOR :).

An interesting picture. Not to mention that white armor looks pretty cool.

I like the armor better in white than in black. Looks like another third faction maybe. It might be like the Sixth Line Jedi though. I know I missed a lot of story but was expecting a lot more than what I saw of them.

Do the guys in the black and white armor kind of look identical?

They look the same to me except for armor color.

Better than any of that, the detail/textures in the image give the impression there could be a full cinematic trailer for this expansion - which says a LOT of different things all at once if it's true. I'm hoping it's true.

If there are really going to be new companions then it sounds more and more like an expansion expansion. XD

...just a thought...

It wouldn't surprise me if Bioware and EA got together and realized that, with the release of Episode 7 in December, the Star Wars brand is going to be hugely revitalized. Beyond the current cliques of nerds, geeks and other such folks, if the film is good, then there's going to be a lot of people that will have a renewed interest in the franchise, and even if its bad, the build up towards it is basically going to be free advertising for them.

That image? I had to look carefully at it for a bit, because it didn't look like a SWTOR image. It looked like something that would fit in with the EP7 trailer (Desert world, crashed ship...).

Because of all that, EA's probably going to be willing to put more money in SWTOR for a bit, try to draw in more new players who want to feel that old Space Magic, and see if the game can scale up a bit more.
