Some new SWTOR vids were revealed at PAX East, which just ended. This first to hit was the third “trailer” for SWTOR, which is all in-game footage:
Color me unimpressed, although in fairness I felt the cinematic trailers for SWTOR were mind-blowingly great, so it’s maybe not surprising that this seems a bit limp in comparison. The music and voice work sound fantastic, I’ll say that, but the art style and animations look really flat to me. The next piece is a 16 minute dev walkthrough of some mid-level instanced content:
This is far more interesting, in that we get a nice extended look at the actual gameplay dynamic. It doesn’t look bad, and some elements of it look extremely well-done, but at the same time I’m just not seeing any reason to be exceptionally excited about it. That could always change as we get closer to launch.
