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.
