Daniel Erickson sat down with Gamespot and showed a gameplay demo of grouping in Alderaan. Daniel wanted to emphasize that there are group play opportunities outside flashpoints and raids/operations. The boss fight depicted in this video shows some fairly complicated group coordination needed to defeat the enemies. There are even some puzzle aspects to the encounter. Watch the full video for plenty of in-game footage.
Praise the Friday Update gods, they brought us to the Promised Land! After a dry season of no gameplay information, BioWare said unto its fans, “Have faith and you shall have your fill.” But the people hardened their hearts and they cried out into cyberspace, the void of which is terrible deep, magnifying the clatter of voices in endless echoes of dissatisfaction. And lo, just when the night’s gloom was unpierced even by the tiniest spark of hope and most silent, a light blazed across the horizon, and broke the spine of the dark, whining beast. “Behold,” said BioWare, “We bring you glad tidings of great joy! We give you the Imperial Agent, the smoothest of all criminals! We give you PvP and Crafting! We’ll even let you change that Advanced Class name you hated so much.”
And the beast retreated into its place of lurking and the fans were mollified. For now.
Oh BioWare, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…
- A chance to re-name the Jedi Wizard Advanced Class.
Lots of new gameplay info plus speculation that companions will be a part of PvP after the jump.
