I know this post is a little late, but nevertheless here it is. Over at PAX Prime, Bioware confirmed the beta weekend and which week it started for Star Wars: The Old Republic. They also featured an Alderaan PvP Warzone and how it rolls out. The most revealing part of the show was about the Open World PvP that everyone knew for the first time. Here are some of the details
- Many neutral planets up for grabs with multiple control points (ie. bases, and turrets)
- Planet Ilum was the planet used as a reference
- If a faction takes control of planetary defences, bombing runs can be called in on opposing base
- Players will receive Valor and Mercenary points for participation. Mercenary points can be exchanged for the best PVP gear
Let’s hope more will be revealed after the Beta Weekend. While we wait, here’s a video link about Alderaan PvP.
A new event has captured the hearts and minds of the citizens on the Smuggler’s Moon of Nar Shaddaa. Known as “Huttball,” two teams clash for the amusement of the masses and to win favor with the famed Giradda the Hutt in this new video that highlights just one of the Player-vs-Player (PvP) Warzones in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!
From recent interviews with BioWare’s developers, SWTOR PvP war zones are expected to be rather similar to those found in Warhammer and World of Warcraft. It’s not fully clear yet whether open PvP will be made available when the game is released, however, the team have mentioned that there will definitely be SWTOR PvP play and there will be instances.
Besides SWTOR PvP, raids will be available in different sizes to emphasize the massively multiplayer aspect of the game. Warzones such as the Alderaan Warzone will all have specific objectives. Particularly for this PvP Warzone, there will be three types of guns. The objective is to get the guns and aim them at the enemy’s ship to intimidate them and have them on the run. Plot-wise it’s like a planetary defense cannon. Both PvP parties will be on the ship at the same time. When the ship is destroyed, debris and smoke would appear, marking the end of the match.
According to BioWare’s developers, the plan is to create SWTOR PvP environments with increasing gameplay tension to keep gamers immersed in the game. Different warzones would provide different objectives for those engaged in the large scale PvP. The reward system would however remain the same throughout.
In SWTOR, it’s not about getting all or absolutely no PvP rewards but about maximizing those rewards. This means that the losing party would get rewards nevertheless but just less PvP rewards. The system is planned to be designed this way to keep gamers interested in rematches.
