SWTOR is big news these days and with the launch of Star Wars: The Old republic – we heard about it all from all directions. USA Today’s Game Hunters had a fantastic interview with BioWare doctors Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka about the game and its development. The article by Mike Snider would draw interest to even those who have not already bought the game.
First, they talk a little about the undertaking and the development process for SWTOR. Then they tell us about how big of a project this is for BioWare, something that those of us who have been following the game for years definitely know already.
They then talk about the potential the game has to bring newcomers to MMOs. This is something we’ve talked about here on our site as well and I definitely agree that the game has the potential to bring in gamers who were not former MMO fans. It’s even bringing in fans who were not previous gamers.
They talk about locations in the game and how they might parallel the movies and they make a mention of Greg’s SWTOR tattoo. All in all, it’s a fun interview and well worth the read because it mentions things that the doctors have not directly talked about in other interviews. Head over and give it a read if you’re waiting to play.
