It does look like its on rails but it still looks and sounds good to me. Reminds me a little of Tempest but with better graphics lol.

Guess I showed my age with that comment.

Well i got only one real problem with that!

Since its *on rails* and not ''free form'' like SWG (ETC...) space combat ,

there is a chance that this is completly mission based, (cant fly/travel in space at will, cant grind mobs or mine astroids etc)

AND SINCE there can only be so many missions,

im afraid that we will be running out of this ''space content on rails'' LONG BEFORE we reach level 2 on ground combat! :D

Time will tell..

Peoples expectations are just way too high! Just want everything in a single mmo.


This looks like fun and creates a better Starwars atmosphere than if it where not implemented at all.


Might even be upgraded at a later time.

Beside that, can we fly free around. And land were we like. ?

You've got to be kidding Sonican.

I dont know what single player games you've played that have minigames like that, but I've never seen one.

That looked almost exactly like Rogue Squadron, which was nothing but what you saw in the trailer, and was awesome if I might add.


I can understand why some people are dissapointed by space not being freeroam, and so was I a bit at first, but come one...I'm not even close to some kind of Bioware fanboi but if that trailer doesn't excite anyone about space combat  then I think you're trying really hard NOT to like it, because that looked leaps and bounds more fun compared to what I had experienced with SWG.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but space combat in TOR looks very fun. I guess they wanted a far more direct approach to space where you aren't mindlessly cruising around trying to find your target. A free roam, while far more realistic, would probably be like EVE where you spend more time moving around rather than fighting.

Awful. This belongs on the automat maschines from the 80's. Black Prophecy shows how it's done properly. Epic freestyle action in arcade setting and dark atmosphere - that's what TOR space combat should have been like. I'm not asking for a space sim. Btw they should change the opening warning to: "Content inapropriate to people over 12" lol. TOR is proving to have less and less in common with the original trilogy, and rather is more childish than the prequels. A disapointment of a cosmic scale is brewing, just like the one in 1999.. this time I wont let it catch me by surprise.

Reminds me of Firefox not sure what people were expecting they said all the missions were scripted and came with side missions it's basically a single player game for entertainment built into an MMO at launch. Who says a future expansion wont come out and make it better or add a multiplayer demension to it it. I cant wait to see what other things they build in but CORE game play content is what intrests me the most!

I'm with Cujo... the scenes at the start are jarring, which may mean you need to play other Bioware games to get used to it? The space combat will likely be quite fun as a distraction during "normal" MMO play.

Hmm, on rails flight. It looks great but feels like lego star wars. Fine for when I'm playing with my nephews but it'll get old real quick in a game I'm paying for. It is fab as an adrenaline boost between ground-based combat but I really hope it'll be something they expand on. I loved X-wing but all these years later I'm hoping for something more open.


Space combat has been been done so well. I'd hoped they'd go for the immediate fun of something like freelancer rather than the involvement of X3 or the complexity of EvE but this? Great for the story but hopefully they'll add more for the end-game considering the relative development costs of solo games like freelancer and mmos like jge compared to the amounts being spent by EA.


I wouldn't mind if it were story-lite but I hope they'll give us an excuse to dust off joysticks. Even if I do just end up losing at pvp again (SWG memories). Still loving this game's build-up but this particular glimpse did not excite me as much as many others.

This was a downer to look at. Crappy graphics, mildly spoken. I used to think this game was a bout to fail, then looked at some trailer and got a bit hyped (it was not ingame footage) now this made my hype sink the the bottom.

Is this actually what they are able to cough up? Dream on if you think this crap will challenge World of Warcraft or Blizzard in any way. I am pretty sure they are having a good laugh when they are looking at this junk.

Bioware would have been better off leaving the space side of things out of the game altogether rather than dumping this crap on us. They should have planned for a space themed expansion done properly for release 6 months to a year after launch.

TO : Oneon :

You are kidding right... Exited by that... Not in a million year even if it's just a mini-game or if the game was free to play (and i do not think it will be).

The only thing the game has now is voice and nothing else. The combat in their video are static. They have no life to them. Every one standing there getting shoot and no one trying to evade or anything...  Geez that look fun....

And this... What else could be say beside it suck... I stopped playing Star Fox almost a 2 decade ago because it was a bad game and they think this should be in a game coming out in what 1 or 2 years?????

That's not the kind of space combat I want in an mmo. It seems more like a cut scene type of thing for when you first get your ship or something like when you got shiped of to tatowine in the begining of swg.

LOL sooo true, its Starfox all over again!


Less mini game and more free-form would have been alot more appealing to many. Hard to do everything in a single MMO but  IMO leave it out and revamp it way after release.

Love it, looks like a really fun, polishes mini game for space, everyone seems to be expecting the space section to be exactly like EVE online, that't not going to happen. Personally i like it, i'd rather they spend most of their time getting land part perfect and if they want to improve space, leave it to an expansion if they want. +1 for space on rails.

Space combat shouldn't really be a concern for this mmo, there are no pilot classes, no real big concern for actually having to fight in space. It comes down to Jedi and Sith showing their skills with the force, and other ground troops + bounty hunters showing they can kick ass too.

I am actually looking forward to all the planets and ground content. Don't care to much about space combat in general, I like the effects and all but most of us don't like star wars because of star fighters and pew pew lasers. We all know that Jedi and Sith are what makes star wars. (with the exception of bounty hunters like Gredo and Jango Fett)

Oh and so what if it looks like WoW, don't pretend that it wasn't a fabulous feeling to play when it first came out. I still love jumping in that game, the best controls in any mmo yet. 

Graphics is a very important key to an mmo, but so is NOT LAGGING, so I don't mind the weird character design, the environment is amazing though.

Ok i rambled long enough sorry if I was a little off topic . . .

If you want space combat by all means look towards the direction of Jumpgate Evolution instead, TOR's space combat is is for kicks and giggles only. Just to say that they feature it.

People want everything in an MMO, expectations are too high? No, people want an MMO that does ANYTHING well. So far the only thing redeeming about SWTOR is its single player aspects, which doesn't matter in an MMO. 


Many MMOs in the past were chock full of more content and features than even WoW has, on launch day.

C) An immature douche that doesn't understand improper use of language and context makes them look like they only finished 4th grade and skated along in WoW up until this point in their life.

I just do not see why they can not put in the same kind of space element that SWG had. That was simply amazing in terms of actually flying around and being freeform. Why add in a space element that is not freeform?

I guess the whole game is "on rails" though like all of their games. Dragon Age was like walking along a train ride - no left or right just follow the story line like a bull with a ring in its nose. 

Why all the hype over this game? Because it is Star Wars I guess. Seriously though this is not for anyone wanting any kind of roleplaying freedom in the Star Wars universe.

I wish someone would update SWG - oh wait they already tried that....
