BioWare's Upcoming MMO Based in KOTOR Universe

A source close to BioWare confirmed to Primotech today that the studio's upcoming untitled massively-multiplayer online RPG will be centered around the Star Wars universe, specifically that of Knights of the Old Republic, which the developer released in 2003. The game garnered critical acclaim and spawned a less-popular sequel, released by Obsidian two years later.

calm down lad, still only a rumor, guess this will be multi now that ea own bioware.

Edit : how can some one disagree with me and dark wittness

Well Bioware wanted the KOTOR games to be multiplatform as well, but the PS2 would of required extra cuts from the game and they didn't want to do that. So it makes sense for them to have it on all the platforms. Either way noone really knows just yet if it will be in the Star Wars realm. Could be something entirely different. Its just a rumor you know. Although many rumurs that I have seen come to truth. It all depends.

Do you have a link for that?

It'd be kinda hard for BioWare to want KOTOR to be multiplatform - considering Microsoft had been the publisher from the beginning of the development.

Good thing EA bought Bioware. Now this will finally see a PS3 release. Probably will look as good as Oblivion when you compare ports to that "other" system.

LOL. It's never a good thing when EA buys anything. As long as they let the Bioware team work on it though then it is ok.

i hate ea but if its star wars ill do anything

HarryEtTubMan4075d ago

Now this is one I would really want to add in with all the NC SOFT MMO's coming to the PS3. Sony online entertainment is also developing a MMO as we speak.

Panthers4075d ago

Yea they are making that secret agent game which they want to be free to play. If it is, I will most likely get it.

ulath6664075d ago

Not likely. Cant see someone as big as Bioware teaming up with NCsoft. Especially not with EA at their backs.

Azures4075d ago

I don't think excitement is the word for this game if its true. Ecstasy perhaps.

Hooby4075d ago (Edited 4075d ago )

Damn. These means the story won't be nearly as involving or generally awesome as kotor 1/2. In kotor you were the galaxies hero, in this MMO you will be another joe nobody, it completley goes against the kotor feel. I wish they'd make kotor 3 first and finish Revans story first. If I'm playing a kotor game I want to be in the action with a lightsaber, not some soldier. But in the kotor universe there are tons more jedi/sith than the yoda days. So while everyone probably could be a jedi and make the story still seem legit, The story is kotors key.

Azures4075d ago

we haven't confirmed the game's kotor-ness but they've already said WATEVER they're making is very story driven like all their stuff.

hope this is new sith wars era, still old republic <3
