Jump to Lightspeed Date

The Star Wars Galaxies Website (thanks Frans) announces October 27 as the launch date for the Jump to Lightspeed expansion that will bring spaceflight to Star Wars Galaxies:

LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment are pleased to confirm that Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed will release on October 27th, 2004.

Haden Blackman, producer, LucasArts: "LucasArts is thrilled with the Jump To Lightspeed expansion, a product of our strong and ongoing partnership with SOE. This first expansion delivers the fun and engaging space combat experience players expect from Star Wars."

Jump to Lightspeed adds a whole new level of fast-paced game play to the established Star Wars Galaxies ground-based MMORPG. Thousands of players will now be able to join their friends in exploring and battling across 10 deep space sectors in over 20 different customizable spacecraft, including iconic X-wings, TIE fighters and "Millennium Falcon" type transports.

Nuts to the NDA. I cancelled my account three weeks ago, what are they going to do? End my subscription?

I understand that things change daily in beta, and that it's a Work-in-progress. So is World of Warcraft, a beta that I'm also in. But here's the big difference: I believe that the problems in Beta will be addressed in WoW. I didn't in JTL.

I played SWG from early Beta 3 until Oct 5th of this year. That's a nice, big, chunk of SWG time. Errors and bugs that were in the beta of the original game are still in the game today. Imbalances that were supposed to be fixed almost a year ago are still in the game. There are fundamental design problems with the SWG system that are carried into JTL, and I was never given a single bit of hope that those bugs will go away. Not once.

In fact, in the month that I was in the beta... the game got worse from a design aspect. I started when there was a bug that you had to log on/off to get your ship to move. It then went to a bug where you couldn't hyperspace, and then to bug where any time you accessed a frog it wiped out your ships and anything put into it. And then on, and on, and on.

JtL will be nothing but a giant mass of loot fights and kill-stealing, similar to the SWG core game. Good luck to the people who play it.
