Bioware talks Cinematics – Star Wars the Old Republic
Coinciding with the final day of 2010, the year before the launch of Star Wars the Old Republic, Bioware has released their last Friday update. Perhaps intentionally, they leave the SWTOR fans with a parting sortie that re-emphasizes the importance of story; this time from the perspective of Cinematic Design.
In the words of the writer of the article, well done cinematics “allow us to emotionally invest in the characters and the world around them … developing scenes that players will remember for years to come.” I don’t recall very much about the story lines in prior MMO’s, but I still clearly remember many scenes from movies, some of which I saw over 30 years ago. That, to me, is the best reason to believe in Bioware’s choices for this game!
