Star Wars: The Old Republic Articles
Last month's anticipated expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic was received with less than favorable fanfare. Legacy of the Sith was released with issues that plagued the experience, but one that rose above the rest was the new Combat Styles. Scott takes a look at the feature in his latest.
It's been over two months since Falko returned to one of his old MMO flames, Star Wars: The Old Republic. In this fourth installment, Falko takes a look at the familiarity of the questing in a galaxy far, far away.
I recently penned a piece confessing some of my biggest MMO shames, which included the fact I’d never finished all of the class stories in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Aiming to knock one of those off of my list, I’ve returned to the game once again and while I’m enjoying playing my character(s) and continuing the story, there are some things that continue to bug me about the game to this day.
Few games captured the operatic sense of Star Wars as well as Star Wars: The Old Republic. Red Thomas introduces a couple youths to the experience as he takes another look at the game years after setting SWTOR aside. Red explains how he felt about his return and his impressions of the game with kids in tow.
As much as I want to play Jedi: Fallen Order, the Mandalorian’s got me itching for some bounty hunter action, and if you’re feeling the same, I’d like to recommend you check out the Bounty Hunter class in Star Wars: The Old Republic.
It’s been almost three years since Star Wars: The Old Republic got a new expansion. While I’m the sort of player who only returns to SWTOR for new story content, I’ve still been eagerly awaiting the game’s next big story drop. Despite some misgivings, I really enjoyed Knights of the Fallen Empire and Knights of the Eternal Throne and I’ve been craving more. Now that Onslaught is finally out, is it everything I’d hoped for?
You may have missed it among all the other awesome Star Wars announcements at this year’s Celebration, but BioWare did unveil Star Wars: The Old Republic’s next expansion at the event and they’re calling it Onslaught. It was a curiously low key announcement and there still isn’t a trailer to be found, but Onslaught is coming in September and I’m glad that we’re getting it. Let’s dig in.
The last few updates were part of BioWare’s attempt to put the genie back in the bottle by knocking the Eternal Alliance down a few pegs. Jedi Under Siege is the first real step towards a full course correction and return to the game’s roots as a story of conflict between the Sith Empire and Galactic Republic. The problem is that, at least so far, it’s about as awkward as I expected it to be.
I loved Knights of the Fallen Empire and Knights of the Eternal Throne for many reasons, but the one frustrating aspect of the events that transpired in these expansions was their grandiosity. These expansions ask the question: wouldn’t it be awesome to actually win and rule the galaxy? The answer is yes and no.
Having spent more time with the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, I’ve gotten a better idea for the hot (and not so hot) aspects of the expansion. Read on for our look at both.
I often think about how I’d love to play SWTOR – only re-imagined with the new landscape of MMOs in mind. But things like action combat or even a smaller set of active abilities probably aren’t going to ever happen for SWTOR, so where does that leave things for the future of Star Wars and online games?
Star Wars: The Old Republic gets its 4th expansion this December with Knights of the Eternal Throne. The expansion will continue the story of the current expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, bump the level cap up to 70, and more. Any new expansion is a great time to come back to your favorite MMO, but we think Eternal Throne makes a particularly good case for a return to Star Wars: The Old Republic.
BioWare’s latest live stream event detailed the new Galactic Command system coming to Star Wars: The Old Republic with the release of the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion this December. The structural changes made to gear progression with this system are set to have a far-reaching impact on the game, and the community isn’t exactly too happy about it.
