The Old Republic Delay?

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Website has a new trailer to highlight Warzones, a PvP element in BioWare's upcoming Star Wars MMORPG. The clip depicts the battle for Alderaan, the home planet of Princess Leia that eventually became a target drone for the Death Star. They also offer fans the chance to come up with a name for one of the Advanced Classes for the Jedi, as they equivocate about the name Jedi Wizard. They are conducting a poll to see if that name should be kept as it is, or changed to either Jedi Sage, Jedi Seer, or Jedi Adept. There's also a Star Wars: The Old Republic preview on GameSpot that looks at PvP as well as crafting in the game. Finally, there's a BioWare interview on where doctors Zeschuk and Muzyka discuss The Old Republic, as well as EA Louse and Mass Effect 3. One of Ray Muzyka's answers about The Old Republic's due date indicates the game's previously confirmed spring 2011 release window may be in jeopardy, as he now says of the game's release: "We're just saying 2011."

Game looks great, it has a nice take on crafting where you can have companions doing it partly for you or in teams with other player, warzones having an actual part in the story, and not having you meeting in arenas fighting for a stupid flag that makes no sense... With focus on story where every other MMO has has none. This will rock most SW fans world. The only thing they really need to work on are animations like running and day and nightcykles.

Do you have any links to video clips that show gameplay for long periods of time? Everything I can remember see has been really short, like seconds in most cases, it looks like someone is editing it HEAVILY and it would be nice to see someone simply playing the game for 10 min doing the things you're talking about.

Has they made any clips like this? down in flames after discounting their currency!
Kickstarter "Game Developer"!
