Bioware’s story MMORPG, Star Wars The Old Republic got a brief mention in a Star Wars Games Video Trailer/Featurette shown at the EA Play Press Conference. James Ohlen, the Director of Design for SWTOR, said this in the featurette:
Star Wars is what got me into roleplaying games in the first place, that storytelling you did as a kid with your Star Wars action figures.
With Star Wars The Old Republic the choices you make, the freedom you have, that’s really a part of a Bioware game and beyond The Old Republic there are so many stories we still want to tell.
Footage shown while James spoke included the Sacrifice Trailer and game play from Knights of the Fallen Empire as well as brand new footage from upcoming Chapters of KOTFE. See screen grabs of brand new footage from the Trailer/Featurette below.
The other Star Wars Games featured were Star Wars Battlefront, Respawn Entertainment’s untitled Star Wars Game, Galaxy of Heroes and Visceral Games’ unannounced title.
