I like the idea of having your own starship in this game but only if theres more to it than just allowing you to move from planet to planet. Some customisation would be nice along with being able to upgrade it with features you can actually make use of while questing.
i need customisation , and be able to choose my crew .. it worked very well in skies of arcadia ( exploring to get usefull people ) and recruting CAN be done well ...suikoden games are doing it just fine .. same with infinite space ...
I am really curious as to how this would work? They would have to be rather large and having everyone with their own ship would be crazy. I am also wondering if we would actually be able to fly them around ourselves, or just run around inside them.
Why would it be crazy? That's the way it is in SWG.
pay to play? If that's the case no thanks. The cgi trailer looks awesome though.
Why? A lot of other games are pay to play. You have to pay for Xbox Live but that doesn't stop people from using that.
It's an mmo....
Welcome to the world of decent MMOs. Those are the ones you pay a monthly fee for.
Century. Definitely right after the third movie.
It's set 3600 years before Episode IV.
is this game for PC only ?!
Awesome. I'd like a modified freighter capable of point-5 past lightspeed, and some smuggling holds.
I can't freakin' wait for this! Owning and tricking out your own ship was the best part about SWG. Nothing more fun than cruising around the galaxy in your own ship, late at night, and getting challenged by some assholes out in the middle of nowhere. Lol.
I doubt it'll let you actually fly it. I'm sure they will add ship combat in an expansion maybe, it's cool that you can customize either way.
