Star Wars Galaxies: 'Spiritual Successor' in a Modern Setting?

    I'm not sure if I see spiritual successor or zombie survival with a few tweets to tease SWG fans.

     

    Guess I'll find out later, but I remain cautiously skeptical.

    I mean if it's a SWG spiritual successor featuring a church like in the screenshot that really leaves only two options the way I see it, modern post-apocalyptic setting or a western setting.

    I'm not expecting it, not even seeing it as likely but part of me is kinda hoping that's a western church and not a modern-day abandoned post-apocalyptic church...

    Or a Firefly setting... :)

    So now what do you think it means ..........

     

     

    I think it means he likes Johnny Cash and the album art happens to be hanging in the room.

     

    I dunno - I save my tinfoil for aliens and bigfoot; not puter games.

    Those things are futuristic or scifi.

    We currently in real life have space flight.  We went to the moon decades ago.

    We have war, just read the news.

    We have had colonization throughout history.

    Aliens are real too - they take my order at Del Taco.

    Androids are becoming the most common type of phone.

    I'm SO over zombies.

     

    If it is a zombie title as far as I'm concerned it'll be LDOA, or launched dead on arrival.

    I don't like modern mmo themes. i probably won't be interested because of that. I like sword and board... unless it's star wars.

    l don't care for SOE games anymore, lm tired of spending my money and time for them to cancel them when they feel like it. First SWG and now Vanguard two games l was still playing. Unless is a real SWG game coming out, no thanks SOE.

    Those graphics have a very similar artistic style to SWG, the detail and realism are there. I would dig a survival horror MMO but whatever the "successor" turns out to be, I'm not sure I'd  want another slice of SOE pie.

  • EnrifEnrif PforzheimPosts: 151Member Uncommon

    i cant get it why people always bash publishers for mistakes they did long ago. Its like those old people who don't get it that things changed.

     

    to the tease Picture could be one of three things

    1. Zombie-Horror-Survival

    2.Post-Apocalyptic-Survival

    3. Modern Steam-Punk

    A post apocalyptic earth sandbox and open world mmorpg would be pretty sweet.  I liked Fallen Earth but SoE has the means to do something more with this genre.

    I think it will be called SWG:Next and will launch in two parts.  The first will be SWG:Next Landmark.  In that version you can pay $100 to join the alpha for the free game (oh yeah that also give you a special badge and tool).  This first game will be mostly focused on building things in your own plot of land that you will stake out.  The terrain is deformable and you can build structures like the church shown in the screenshot.

     

    This game will have little to nothing to do with the original SWG but rather will capitalize on it's name to draw curious people to take a look.

     

     

    take my money!

    Not to worry, Have some patience. Trust me, they are getting to that.

    The only people that can make ANY Star Wars games for the next 10 years are EA. EA already have a Star Wars MMO - SWTOR. 

    Ontop of this, there are a couple of thousand people TOTAL that want SWG2 (most of them seem to frequent this site) so it would not make business sense to produce a game for such a niche market. 

     

    Wrong....

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-05-06/electronic-arts-gets-star-wars-game-license-from-disney.html

     

    Disney will “retain certain rights to develop new titles within the mobile, social, tablet and online game categories,” the companies said in a joint statement. That include licensing out the SW license for a new MMORPG to another publisher thats not EA.

     

    Wanted to note as well this SW game in development that lends proff that they retain the right to make or license out the SW license outside EA to make games is this one in development.

    http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/star-wars-assault-squadrons-space-combat-sim-reason-try/

    Lucasarts,Disney Interactive, and 52 Games no where it has EA anywhere stamped on the game.

    Here is the games official site

    http://www.starwarsattacksquadrons.com/

    No where it has EA stamped on it at all. This whole deal with EA has a lot of people confused, EA is not going to be the only game in town making Star Wars games, the fact the Disney retains the  rights to make certain genres including a MMORPG would leave out EA having one of their studios making another mediocore MMORPG like it did with TOR.

    So now what do you think it means ..........

     

     

    http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/Facilities_Locator/SQ.html

    I think it means that the next SOE MMO will be a prison themepark.  You log onto your account and sit in your cell trapped in true themepark fashion.

     

    Highlights of this MMO will be:

    1) Three "Hots"

    2) One "Cot"

    3) One hour of inmate exercise in the recreation yard with exploration achievements.

    4) Crafting will consist of making and upgrading your prison shank.

    5) PvP will be the shower gangrape.

    Umm maybe we will really get lucky and it will be Firefly.......

    Sci-fi with a heavy modern/western look. Hows that for a spiritual successor to SWG!

    If they did it well, that would be amazing.

    Another zombie survival game. Damnit, there's no originality in that.
  • SwearSwear Game Land, NJPosts: 5Member

    Maybe I'm wrong but, I see something small in the picture that caught my eye after zooming in on it.  I looked at the building and could see one of the "stars" in front of it, the "blurr" of the stars had a few people commenting about it being a meteor shower, I think perhaps it could be embers...

     

    Maybe something blew up on the sky and is raining down?

     

    Just a thought.

    You'll lose a lot of money chasing women, but you'll never lose a woman chasing money.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.

    I would be willing to bet they got the rights to the Walking Dead and are making a sandbox style mmo similar to (and to cash in on the popularity) Dayz....makes perfect sense!
