I was going to talk about Warhammer Online today, but I decided to talk about the possible Bioware/Lucas Arts MMO because of all the recent rumors. First off, none of this is for certain. All I know is that Bioware is making an MMO, and Lucas Arts has confirmed that they are working with Bioware for a Star Wars game. This could be the same game, or two different games. If a new Star Wars MMO is developed, it will probably be set in the Clone Wars because of the new movie coming out this August or a KotOR MMO. I really doubt it will be anything like Pre-CU SWG because all the other Star Wars games made by Bioware were a class/level system. So it will probably look something like NGE SWG, but hopefully much better. I really dont think there is any chance of the PvP turning in to "buff wars", in fact it could be quite good if it was made to be like warhammer online but with vehicles and more of a shooter play style. Of course, there is always the chance that Lucas Arts is absolutely ticked about what SOE did to SWG, and have hired Bioware to make a game like a new and improved Pre-CU SWG. Lets hope so.
Lets go on to what things will be like if there ISNT a new Star Wars MMO coming. Obviosly, the new Star Wars Bioware game will either be KotOR 3 or The Clone Wars game that is on the star wars website, but there is no info about it whatsoever. The Bioware MMO will probably be something along the lines of DDO2, but probably much better. I would not be suprised if the game is based HEAVILY off of D&D 4.0. That might not be that bad because Bioware is making it instead of Turbine, whose newer games haven't been very successful.
