Star Wars The Old Republic MMOG Officially Announced!! October 21, 2008

 KOTOR III !!! or the next best thing (or maybe better). For years we’ve been speculating on when the next Knights of the Old Republic game would come – and now it’s officially been announced!!

hazaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!

Star Wars The Old Republic is a Massively Multiplayer online game – hopefully better than Star Wars Galaxies – produced by none other than BioWare makers ofthe first (and best) KOTOR.

“Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the most critically acclaimed Star Wars game in LucasArts history and a preeminent example of our company’s interactive storytelling heritage,” said Darrell Rodriguez, President of LucasArts in a statement. “For a long time, we’ve wanted to return to the franchise in a grand way, and we felt that the best setting for it was an online world that would allow millions of people to participate in the experience together. We knew that the developer capable of working with us to deliver an engrossing story with a fully-realized online world was BioWare.”

Star Wars: The Old Republic is set roughly 300 years after the events of Knights of the Old Republic, a timeframe that is completely unexplored in the lore. So no Zayne Carrick – but certainly there are some Sith and likely more than few Mandalories about.   Players can choose to play as Jedi, Sith, or a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, defining their personal story and determining their path down the light or dark side of the Force.

No official word on actual release date – though we’d expect sometime in the next 90-120 days as it looks like the game is already well developed at this point.

ARe you excited!!!?? We sure are. Though Star Wars Galaxies sucks – that game was developed by Sony. Bioware is a different animal and we’re willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Check out the BioWare site for some awesome screenshots.

Hell yeah! I just read the first part @ IGN.COM. There is supposed to be more info on the game every day for the rest of the week on the site I just mentiond. No speculation. I just can’t wait to play this deal. Let’s go!

Even though many folks didn’t like how it turned out, I hope the choice of “professions” and the crafting system is more in line with what SWG started as than a World of Warcraft type system. Either way they’ll be getting my scratch I’m sure. (Unless Troy manages to cross boundries and ruin this too.)
