In an interview with Shadowlocked.com, voice actor Paul Darrow may have leaked information about the release of SWTOR. But don’t start blocking off your schedule for long gaming sessions just yet because I’m not so certain this guy knows much more than the script they handed him to read. In fact, I’m quite certain you (yes, you reading this right now) know more about TOR than this guy. He couldn’t even remember the name of the game:
“Actually I’ve just done another one for Lucas, about a month ago. Now what are they calling it…?”
Moving along… next Darrow says, “Anyway, I’m a Sith, and they told me it’s coming out at Christmas. I was just doing some tops and tails, because I had recorded it about a year ago. I’m your guide – a Sith warrior.”
So there you have it. While Darrow is the first NPC voice heard in the upcoming MMORPG, he doesn’t seem to know much about the game he stars in at all. When asked if he likes video games, he adds:
“No, I find them really rather boring. And I don’t watch much television either! Just the odd football match, and The Kennedys, which is on tonight.”
So Darrow doesn’t remember the name of the game but he says they told him it was coming out at Christmas. But on how much authority can we take this info? It’s not really any more than we knew before- that BioWare plans to have the game out by the end of the year. Christmas happens… yup, before the end of the year. And what better time to finally release a really hot game than at the biggest shopping time of the year?
