KOTOR MMORPG?

KOTOR MMO in development? has speculation from the rumors section of the new print issue of EGM Magazine suggesting BioWare may be at work on an MMORPG based on Knights of the Old Republic, their much-loved Star Wars RPG. The reason for drawing this inference is not provided, nor are any other details, though the sub-headline calls this a console title, even though MMOGs more typically reside on PCs.

I have no doubts about BioWare's ability to make a great game, much like Obsidian, but I have my doubts about Lucas Arts. The have a way of stifling their own projects.

BIOWARE GOTTA EAT!

Haha. Kidding aside, if this is true, this could be sooo good. As someone else said though, KOTOR isn't like an MMO at all.. so a KOTOR MMO is straaaange...

Then again, maybe they'll model their MMO after one of my D&D Online ideas I posted a while ago: your party goes into a quest, and can make roleplaying decisions throughout the dialogue trees. For your quest world specifically, the world is changed according to your decisions. Be evil? Be good? It'll all show a result at the end of the quest.

The biggest prob is that you won't be able to see other players (not in ur party) running around your quest world, if it's all instanced in a strict manner..

Agreed, MMOs are crap and I don't see that changing anytime soon. If they are indeed working on an MMO, it doesn't matter whether it's for consoles, PCs, or both. It's an MMO. /ignore

Don't get me wrong KOTOR is simply amazing. However I doubt Bioware could pull off what they did with a single-player RPG in a massively multi-player environment. Let's not forget what made KOTOR so awesome is its nonlinear gameplay and how the game morphed based on your actions. AFAIK this gameplay doesn't exist in any of today's MMOs, with perhaps the notable exception of Asheron's Call. Those of you who played AC know what I'm talking about.

It's all a rumor right now, and yes, what would this mean for Star Wars Galaxies? Doesn't LucasArts publish that too? Can't see them having two Star Wars MMORPGs active at the same time.

Could this be the game that puts the final nail in SWG's coffin ?

IF they are making a console MMO and IF it is based on KotOR I will very likely have something akin to a meltdown on a scale that would compete with Chernobyl.

Now, if it's a KotOR based MMO for the PC, well, I'll probably have to change my pants several times the day that announcement is made.

Edit: I think I'll reinstall KotOR now. I wonder if Team Gizka has finished off their KotOR 2 completion mod yet.

Of course it will be one HELL of a game. It's bioware. Their shit is gold. But I flat out REFUSE to buy a console. My favorite game company leaving PC gaming, and as I said, leaving PC Gamers, those that made them what they are now, after such a legacy. Pissed me off good.

Bioware has continued to stave off reports that they are leaving the PC Gaming industry. Over and Over they've said they have 3 titles in the works and 2 are for the PC. If it turns out that Dragon Age is for the PS3 and their unnamed MMOG is a console title, then they were lying through their teeth!
