    personally i know how my friends will react if they delay much longer (all of which are planning on jumping right in right at launch, they are going to be disappointed and people will start flaming on the message boards and if their delay is long enough people will forget it's even there.

    That announcement, I am almost positive, will be to announce the date when the release date will be announced. An announcement of an announcement date, if you will.

    I say its news on the payment model they will say it will be a freemium model where the people who preorder get everything plus a 1 month sub and the ones that dont just get some sort of basic game.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    I'll bet they're going to tell us that Darth Vader is really Luke's father.

    That'll never happen with the hype.  It would be an infastructure nightmare.  The idea of f2p is to bring in more players to butress a failing player community.  EA is going to have enough players.  They just need to wring more money out of them to recover the costs of building the game and still turn a 40% profit margin like Blizzard does on WoW.

    I stand by box art and pre-order deals.  Worst case, they show crafting in more detail and anounce a delay to Q1 2012.  We all know it's coming.  It'll lead nicely into ME3 in March too assuming the game is stable and fun.

    If you don't worry about it, it's not a problem.

    Doubt they will have a release date but I think they will announce the last couple of features for the game. They will probably show off the world pvp system and maybe another operation. I could also see them announcing the date for phase 2 of the guild system on the website. I bet Comi-con is gonna be all about answering questions regarding end-game since that really is all thats left that people don't know about.

    At 3:30PM on Thursday, July 21st our panel for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be held inside room #6BCF. During the panel we will be answering questions from the audience, Awesome, another Q&A where a BW employee will answer questions that have already been answered, dodge questions they aren't allowed to answer, and say something arrogant to anyone who asks a question that they don't like. giving away some items, Nothing wrong with free shwag, even if it's for an underwhelming project. showing new gameplay footage and making some announcements!  As others have said, the announcements will likely concern the lead-ups to release date, such as pre-order announcements, pre-order rewards, etc. There may not be a release date yet, but hey, it's getting closer.  Once the game is released, and players rush throuh all of the "epic story," and then leave, EA/BW can see how far off their projected subscription numbers are, and start fixing the design flaws that have caused so many of us gamers/SW fans to lose interest.

    It would be bad news if they were to announce a release date, it would be like saying, hey our game is incomplete but we will annoy you by patching it up, changing your spells/skills and balancing them as we go!

    Nah at best they may release info on potential beta tests and or new undisclosed info on their story/combat system but i really would not expect bioware to even make a stab in the dark release date at this point..

    The announcemet will be how plants are designed and rendered in The Old Republic.

    There will be detailed informattion on the fauna on all planets. There will be progression video of plants through different stages of growth.

    The really big announcement at the end of CCSD will be Sith and Jedi flowers that are force sensitive.

    SR will tweet or post something cryptic before CCSD and will post an I told ya so after CCSD.

    You heard it here.

  • BeachcomberBeachcomber GlasgowPosts: 535Member

    More gameplay footage *yawn*

     

    This must be th emost picked over game by the developers ever, if its not perfect the masses will throw a wobbly.

     

  • NightAngellNightAngell londonPosts: 566Member

    They added another 2 hours to the story..image

    Story story story..ermmm we know BioWare, the game has a story..image

  • ScymanScyman regina, SKPosts: 15Member

    I'm sure they will add more detail to crafting and endgame content, maybe solo content with multiple companions or something. It also seems quite plausible to hear about pre-puchase/beta invite anouncement. I don't see them anouncing the official release date untill it is on our doorstep. They have been vague on the release so they won't be rushiing the fianl polish.

I highy doubt there is 200 hours per class of indivual story content, when they say stuff like that I usually cut it by 75-95% and thats the true number. My main issues with swtor really, is how it bascally sounds like a world of warcraft clone just with a story and star wars skin, combat looks simmlar and th egame seems very casual.

    I do wonder what they are going to announce though, would be nice if it is open beta, so I can try the game, because otherwise I won't touch it, no matter what its gameplay is like or who made it. I've lost faith in bioware after dragon age 2 and mass effect 2, so I don't really expect much out of them anymore. I don't take risks buying mmo's I've never tried anymore because almost every time they end up sucking or I dislike them and I just wasted the money.

    Wonder if it could be the games release date maybe?, Details on OB, or the collectors edition etc?


     

    You cant complain at what a game looks like when you dismiss all the evidence and base your dislikes on a reality you made up mate. 

     

    I really despair some times, I am not saying everyone has to like it, but dismissing all the evidence and then replacing it with stuff you made up, just to hate on a game.... thats... a bit odd to me.

     

    Just sayin

    They included an offline mode for TOR, so now single-player gamers will hop into this game as well :P

    Also porting this to xbox and ps3, one year later they are implementing Wii U into the combat system for nintendo lovers.

     

    or they can just release the game at comic con xD, and everyone goes shizzled.

    Additionally, BioWare is sharing their plans for this year's San Diego Comic-Con, where they are said to be making "some announcements."

    At 3:30PM on Thursday, July 21st our panel for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be held inside room #6BCF. During the panel we will be answering questions from the audience, giving away some items, showing new gameplay footage and making some announcements!

    Can we expect a release date announcement at Comic-Con? No one knows, but let the speculation begin!

    Now that SWG has been announced to close down, In my opinion they are going to give a release date, around christmas, but they will not give an exact date yet.

    Considering Dec 31 is the final closing of SWG, I wouldn't be surprised if they are announcing a release date. However, I wouldn't get my hopes up. 

  • Lord_PaladinLord_Paladin San Luis Obispo, CAPosts: 62Member

    BioWare said on the forums that they would tell us ahead of time when they would be announcing the release date. If they didn't specifically say "we're announcing the release date at comic-con" then they won't be.

     

    Besides, Comic-Con wouldn't be the right/best venue for them to make such an announcement.

    Oh come on! If a convention full of Twilight fans and Glee kids isn't the right/best venue to make such an announcement, then I just don't know what is. (Because the SWTOR fans are all going to squeal like a bunch of tween girls, thats why.)

    This better be huge news. Release date, Open world PvP confirmed and details, Raid content. Something the fans can sink their teeth into. As of yet BW announcments have been lame.

    the hype on this game may have just hit ridiculous....

    Lol, I was just thinking the same. Actually it's an announcement (from MMORPG.com) about an announcement about an announcement.

    Just launch the frigging game! XD

    My wish: at least *some* more alien races to play, like Nautolans, Rodians or MonCal. This human only thing is really THE thing I can't get over.
