Equal in size to one of the larger planets? So let me get this straight. You're calling this Chapter 4. Chapters are typically 3-5 planets INCLUDING these larger planets. BS. Complete BS.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Also we really need a social area on Makeb with all the vendors we needso we can get away from fleet.
What exactly in that quote read as sandbox to you? Not trying to be funny perhaps my interpretation of PR speak is weak but I didn't see anything in that quote that suggested sandbox gameplay.

Yet Blizzard released Outland, which is not much bigger (and may even be smaller) than some of the planets and THAT was OK? I heard no whining about that. How about WotLK, which offered Northrend? That wasn't much bigger.

I have no insider knowledge or anything but...

...maybe chapter 4 doesn't end at Makeb? You're right, each chapter is actually several planets, but this story arc might not conclude with this expansion.

i'd imagine you are inccorrect based at least upon them saying it is much larger then any planet they have made.

Thank you for this detail. I can't say I have been happy with some of the decisions lately (not fixing Lobel in TFB and prices of Cartel items), but the transparency you are posting with today is a really nice change and I'll be pre-ordering this morning. Please keep up the frequent communication.

The 5 new levels will occupy players for a fair amount of time, and there's plenty of content to get you there (including a lot of stuff tucked away for the explorers out there). Keep in mind that this announcement is just the start as we approach Makeb's launch, you'll see more details about the content coming with Rise of the Hutt Cartel!

That's what they said. Not much larger, but equal in size.

you do realize Makeb may only be the start of Chapter 4 and not all of chapter 4 right... they could easily take us back to Nar shadaa a hutt planet..or Hutta..or..Use your imagination.

You know what.......................forget it....................its easier to go forum rampaging then it is to try and see other sides to something ...

That sounds worthy of $10. Don't know how one can complain. What do you get for $10-15 console dlc? Maybe 3-5 hours of extra gameplay? I bet this will be 20-30 hours of fun.

Looking forward to it, especially the interested in what else you haven't revealed.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Outland and Northrend may not have been that much bigger, but they continued WoW in the vein that people wanted, in that they brought more raids to the table. Makeb misses out the one key selling point of this game No amount of size is going to change that fact.
