It's not going to be XvT, but it has paintjobs so I can look fabulous when pewpewing things in SPACE. And it looks close enough to XvT anyway.

Most delicious news.

PvP only? While I don't care much for PvP on the ground... in space? YES PLEASE!

I, too, am curious about this. I'm happy for the PvP, but wonder if there will be PvE missions as well.

From the sound of it, there will only be a pvp component to start with. But once the framework is in place, it should be *relatively* easy to implement a pve aspect, a la X-Wing, as well (all it should really need is halfway decent AI, and then mission scripting like any other content).

So even if it's pvp only to start with, once the framework is in place, I think pve missions based off it will be too big an opportunity to pass up.

Looks interesting, more fast past than say SW: Battlefront 2. Only real concern is can the Graphics engine handle 12 v 12 matches with all the fast pace action that will take place?

This community is amazing (read: bad). BioWare finally announces the free flight space combat that everyone has been wanting, and the first several posts are, "Where's the PvE?, " and "This should have been in at launch." As opposed to just, "Cool! Thanks!"

Excellent! Looks good, and I can't wait till smashmonkeys find out that lightsabres don't work in space!
. Shine on, you crazy pixel.

Funny post! The nine circles of SW:TOR PvP hell

Yes, I know that is how it sounds. That is why I am asking for confirmation from Bioware

So it looks like due to the tech limitations, it is free flight yet still instanced and mission-based as 12v12 pvp. Which also tells me free flight but limited space.


I would LOVE some Free Flight PvE as well - think Space Operations/flashpoints. SWG had these, and the one over Kashyyyk was the absolute best and really made me feel like I was in Star Wars

Only two people have done that, I wouldn't say that's the whole community.
