Another role playing game about Star Wars could be in our future. Once again we will be taken back to the galaxy far far away, but this time, instead of revisiting The Old Republic, developers will take us to the stretch of time between Star Wars Episode III and Star Wars Episode IV. Obsidian Entertainment, the developer behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2, and Fallout: New Vegas, pitched the idea to LucasArts, but approval is still needed by the big cheese Mickey Mouse and Disney.
"Obsidian CEO says idea for the new game is "within the top three pitches we've ever come up with"..."
I'm actually very excited to hear about this. I would like to see what Obsidian will do, again, with the Star Wars storyline. Especially since the time period of Episode III and Episode IV is such a pivotal point in the universe. It will be interesting to see what they do and where they will take the characters. I think this has potential to be a great game. The Knights of the Old Republic was not only extremely playable, but it did a wonderful job of sucking you into the game.
I also think that since Star Wars: The Old Republic has been released, and been making so many changes, gamers and fans of the Star Wars saga would be looking for something new to play. I'm not saying that SWTOR is a dying game, I still regularly play, and with the free-to-play switch the population has increased. But it would take something really drastic, besides adding 5 more levels and a new planet, to keep people interested for long term.
Hopefully Obsidian doesn't disappoint and gives Star Wars fans all around something with great playability, and a storyline worth following.
Updates will be posted as more information is found out.
