Comic-Con: Crafting the Multiplayer Story – Live Blog

We’re posting these details as they happen, and we’ll then flesh it out better after the panel has concluded and we are working off of our recording.

  • Each class story as big as original KoTOR, and no one shares content! (is this new? ;)
  • There are of course world/galactic story arcs
  • Ships will be customizable!
  • You can enter space combat! October (? inaudible)  issue of PC Gamer will have a feature on this.
  • Sean confirmed Space Combat was the special reveal!  Read Here. (note: it doesn’t sound like free-roaming space at this time)
  • Responding to a question, alking about switching factions as something they will not allow (kind of a shame)
  • Responding to another questions, planets like Alderaan will have factions aligned with both factions (inaudible as to what they were)
  • Another Question about progression, they view it extremely important and there will be a lot of it. Specifically mentions crafting in that vein
  • (this is basically a Q&A if you haven’t caught on yet :)
  • James Ohlen answered a question about lightsaber type restrictions being visually restricted\
  • Flashpoints are group-only story and will take about an hour to complete
  • World arcs are shareable stories that can be completed alone or in a group
  • Classes will have race restrictions
  • Wrapping up…
  • Ironically, nothing more about the multiplayer story other than mentioning there is one :(

We’ll be working on listening to the recording to see if there’s any way to expand on or provide more details on these points.

UPDATE: GameSpot has posted their high quality video recording of the entire panel, so check it out! Click here to watch.

    My guess it’ll be somewhat of a minigame, but in any case I hope they don’t put too much time and money into space combat.
