So is there only one version per progression or multiple sets at the various levels of progression that look different so we don't look like the every other Bounty Hunter at the same level?

Looks interesting to me, however I thaught incasing a human in carbonite was a relatively new idea during the original trilogy, "never been tried before," or was that just a new idea to the people of cloud city?

I liked the video.  Aside from the overall disappointment from the info released at E3 atleast this video showed some gameplay.  The armor looked good and very bounty hunter-ish.  I approve.  They'll have more styles - that's for sure.  It was just a sample.

@Teala During the G4 interview (you can find the video on the swtor site) it was stated that there would be several customization options for gear as they know players want to look unique (they also stated there would be PvP gear etc etc for those that want to focus on roles.)

So the video is just showing some of the options as you progress.

God I cant believe this game has so many people defending it. I played Fallen earth even with its bad animations because of the fact it was a different idea for an MMO.

 

This is a total waste of a good IP, and not only that a talented team. I dont blame all of BIoware either, using the hero engine was there first mistake, although the engine has good ideas, it appears the practical uses for it are questionable at best. Way to go guys!

All these videos are showing is the progression from basic to high end, there are going to be many ways to customize your gear's appearance, and many different sets that look different as well.

To answer Teala's question. From what I've seen in a few of the BIoware trailers, such as the Developer Dispatch for the Trooper and I think designing the Dark side. They seems to have a fair bit of concept art on armor, although just concept art, its fair to assume that quite a few of them will be implemented, such as the Cold Weather and Jungle armor for the Trooper.

@Valentina,

 

Im sorry but this is what im talking about, people keep spouting off about how "O guys, the games not finished yet, dont jump to conclusions." But thats only when its something negative.

 

Then there are statements like these, and like everyone elses, where all of a sudden, everyone knows whats going to be in the game, simply because its something positive.

 

Sorry guys but you have no proof, none, no way of showing us that bounty hunters have different customization options beyond what they show. If were going to start writing off everyone else for their opinions when they are negative the same should be applied to positive ones.

@jiveturkey12,

Note sure if you were referring to my reply to Teala but if you were let me clear this up. I was in no way defending SW:TOR; I personally have a wait an see attitude towards the game. However Teala posed a question if what was show reflects that there will be only one option. I answered that it was stated there would be multiple options in a video interview that could be found on the sw:tor even mentioning that there would be PvP sets.

There was no prediction or assumption on my part just pointing out what was said on the video which made it clear that what we see here does not reflect what our options will be in game.

I wish I wasnt at work. Suffice it to say I've identified about 7 sets of advanced armor so far. Go through the BH videos and look for yourself. What Im curious about is, do the unique sets with there unique piece match color or not. It would be interesting from a artistic standpoint.

I dont mind the other classes looking very similar,but the one thing i remember about SW was the fact that a lot of the bounty hunters were very distinct. Lets hope this is just a taste,and that Armour/gear is more customizable. Honestly I think lotro had a good idea with the costume thing. Able to wear a class SET but still look totally different because of the costume mechanic they had. enywho . still looks good ,and TY its not another fantasy MMO. I swear if i see another fantasy mmo come out im going  to buy a  copy just so i can use it for target practice ....>.0....

I cant see any type of personalisation to any armour in this game. Like all devs state what will be in a mmo, and yet time again we see them cut it so they can get an early release.

Personally I think the progression looks good.  I hope we do get to choose different armour sets of the same "tier" and maybe even customise them to suit our tastes.  But I'm keeping my expectations in check.  So far, the game is shaping up to be exactly what it's supposed to be a Kotor MMO, not SWG v2.0, and certainly not "WoW in space" as some morons on here like to call it.

I like games where I spend weeks conforming my lifestyle to an online  schedule, logging in hours and boss kills for points, all for the honor of looking just like everyone else... well, everyone else who is a member of an elite guild at any rate, quite obviously the only people that matter.  I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to demonstrate my superiority via SW:TOR, but it looks like my misgivings are misplaced.  Bioware is definitely giving me exactly what I want... more of the same MMORPG crap I'm used to, just repackaged differently so it doesn't feel like I'm doing the exact same thing all over again.

Or, I should say, this game just looks more and more like garbage everytime they release something "new".

Liddokun writes:

That is a madalorian armor classic design... not the Boba Fett design. The old classic design is heavy.. very heavy full set armor (kinda like full mail which covers most of the body). By the time of the galactic civil war era (Luke skywalker's time) mandalorian armor design has changed to become more lightweight partial armor that only covers major vital parts of the body.

Thu Jun 17 2010 9:56AM Report
Liddokun writes:

Also note that the traditional mandalorian armor uses mandalorian ore (beskar) which is incredibly expensive and rare by the time of the galactic civil war so Jango/Boba Fett had to use cheaper materials to make his mandalorian armor such as duraplast or durasteel. That's why true mandalorian armor by that time is too rare and probably only few still exist. True mandalorian armor can protect the wearer from almost all blaster shots and even light sabers.

@ Olgark

No it isn`t. In the latest interview with James Ohlen , he said that there are 10x as many Armors seen in this Video. One of their main focuses was to make sure that each Person looks different. There are also Armors/Outfits that can be worn by all Classes.

You know... In my own personal opinion I wouldn't play a bounty hunter to look like a rip off of a mandolorian, I would play that class to look like a character i myself thought of. Yes I know there will be more types of armor but honestly, those big clanky pieces of armor while look cool is an example of what the highest sets of armor are going to look like. And if that does end up being the case then I hope they include some sort of outfit system like Lotro has. Because I only ever saw about five or so bounty hunters that actually wore such big hunks of armor that sneaking up on anybody to take them out would be impossible, and blending in to follow your target would be just as impossible. Or so says the nerd in me who wants to play a game that is Star Wars and not 'The people all shooting eachother in huge sets of armor.' Oh well, if this is what they give me I suppose I'll have to try it at the very least...

So... how come they can just take laser hits like they're nothing?

And why does every bounty hunter have to be styled after Jengo/Boba Fett? Should have an EXTREMELY diverse array of appearances (as they're sort of renegades). I'm already pretty convinced that this game will be a big, giant hallway of linear progression (like WoW...), this didn't help.

Wow!  This looks great!  Reminds me of showing Tier sets.  Nobody looks the same because different people have different pieces of tier or some pieces of non-tier.  I'm assuming they plan on using the same concept but given the fact that the game isn't even in Beta yet... all of this is eyecandy without really knowing anything.  It's like concept cars at a car show... 2 years later the car looks different... and hell.. looking at cars and driving them.. that's a whole different leve.

All this is doing, is fueling the standard for MMO progression that has stood for so long. We are fed some idea that your armor looks give you an idea of how "awesomely high level" some guy is. This is no better than buying a more expensive car, or bigger diamond.

While I understand you obviously need better armor tied into progression, I wholeheartedly beleive that players should be able to change their looks as they level up. HOWEVER, it is completely incorrect for every level 30 character to have the same gear, and every level 50 char to have the same gear again. At least allow for customization( BEYOND COLOR) for the looks of said armor.

This is my guarantee to the people who plan on playing this game: The you wear WILL look like every other character of the same class.

I have to agree with people that are disappointed, the cartoonish graphics and the feel that dispite may comments otherwise there wont be that much possibility for unique look. Your look will be determined by leveled gear with possibility a small difference if you PvP.
