Behind the Scenes on The Old Republic

StarWars.com Team | July 24, 2009

At E3 this year, LucasArts and BioWare gave not only their first live demos of The Old Republic  to press, but also released what has quickly become a fan-favorite trailer for the game. The reception has been fantastic. And as more information came out, fans got more excited. It should be no surprise – Knights of the Old Republic is one of the better loved Star Wars videogames, and it came out of this same partnership. Today, Jake Neri from LucasArts moderated a panel to give fans even more insight into exactly what goes into making a game that continually breaks boundaries.

On the panel were some of the senior people from the development team -  Hall Hood (senior writer, BioWare), Alexander Freed (managing editor, BioWare), Dallas Dickinson (senior content producer, BioWare), and Jeff Dobson (art director, BioWare). Jake wasted no time jumping directly into the questions – starting with Dallas who didn’t shy away from a few jokes. “Star Wars: The Old Republic is a Story-Driven Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game – that’s SDMMORPG for those who are Twittering right now. It’s set 3,000 years before the movies and 300 years after the events of the original Knights of the Old Republic.”

Chewie Shows His PSP Love at E3

StarWars.com Team | July 11, 2007

Bringing new meaning to “Let the Wookiee win” Chewbacca showed his love for the new Star Wars-themed PSP and promoting the Star Wars Battlefront pack, which includes a white PSP with none other than Darth Vader’s image on the back.

Joystiq reports directly from E3:

“We’re also offering another color, and I’ve brought a special person to help introduce this color. Ladies and gentlemen, Chewbacca!” Chewbacca enters stage right to the score of Star Wars. Wookiee banter fills the auditorium. He’s holding a Star Wars-themed PSP…Jack and Chewy go back and forth — it’s endearing.

“Thanks for joining us Chewie, I know you’ve come a long way, and I see you’ve got your Sony PSP Battlefront Pack with you. It’s a white PSP that features Darth Vader’s image on the front.” Chewie ROARS! “No Chewie, you can’t have that one for free, but you will be able to buy it soon.” We’d love to know what else is new with this PSP (faster UMD drive?). Guess we’ll have to wait…
