SWTOR Over 200 Hours of Gameplay Per Class

June 29th, 2011 by Lavi Lee

Ready your lightsabers for the most amazing and still highly anticipated game of the year, Star Wars the Old Republic. Electronic Arts and Bioware are still silent as the the SWTOR release date but details to the game are slowly being revealed, quenching the game-hungry gamers thirst for this grand mmorpg.

SWTOR Beta participants has shot over the roof, the sheer numbers of applicants have blown this game away and numerous amounts of gamers finally have had hands on experience of the game at E3.

Frank Gibeau, EA Games head had a chat with Industrygamers recently to discuss events regarding their developments costs of the game SWTOR and the content that gamers will be enjoying soon enough. While the figures for development costs were not revealed by Gibeau, estimates of the costs have been massive. Gibeau states clearly that this investment in time and especially money has been worth it as the game contains over 200 hours of gameplay for each class. This 200 hours is only for one of the each six available classes and not including the crafting, raids and multiplayer. Be prepared to be immersed in this gigantic game.

Gibeau also confidently expects that Star Wars the Old Republic will do what no other mmorpg has done, and that is to ‘transport fans to another galaxy’, providing the best experience possible even though the game had been so expensive to produce.

With Origin being the online service EA has selected to deliver SWTOR and help on the launch of a new digital storefront, Gibeau tipped gamers off that there will be in the future special and exclusive content. Gibeau hopes that Origin has the potential of covering a wider and new range of audience which will help return some of the huge investments they have made in the game – mainly investments in the expansive class-system and amazing cinematics. Over thousands of hours worth of playtime, it seems like SWTOR will have what it takes to be the mmo of the next century.

SWTOR Release date: expected to released sometime next year only on the PC
