...It's a rail shooter?
 
...Really?

Posted by Toxin066

I would not want to have lag in this...

Posted by MisterMouse

part of that didnt seem like star wars...

Posted by bigall94

Anybody have an idea what I just saw? I hit play to start the video before I put my headphones in, and up comes a 30 second video of Drew over a white background. I hit refresh and it was the actual video....

Yeah - the talking bit didn't feel like Star Wars. It felt like KOTOR and Mass Effect. It felt like Bioware and that's a good thing.
 
The on-rails shooter though? 100% Star Wars. Rollercoaster ride. Just like the movies.

...so it's on rails.

Posted by MajorToms

At least it's not another pre-rendered bioware trailer. Kind of getting sick of them not revealing gameplay or ingame graphics. It's one thing to build up your game with hype, but when you compare the E3 pre-render trailer to this gamescom trailer, you're kind of left with uncertainty towards the game's polish.
 
Their budget for Blur Studio creating them these beautiful pre-rendered trailers has to come close to the budget for the rest of the game.

You guys realize the space quests are entirely optional. Who cares if it's on rails. It's optional and there for fun.

This is disappointing. I wasn't really expecting space combat but this looks even worse than the space combat in SW Battlefront 2.
(I don't mean the graphics, they look quite okay.)
 
I was hoping for more X-Wing, TIE Fighter or even Alliance space combat when I saw that there was supposed to be such combat in SWTOR.

Of all the things I expected space combat to be in this game, Star Fox was not one of them.  This is shit hot. "
Star Fox was the first thing to pop into my head as well; will have to wait for a hands-on to see how it works but I was pleasantly surprised at the concept.

Very cool, some of those combat scenes look awesome, far far better then Star Trek Online. I only hope now that you will be able to walk around your ship and interact with things in it like in the Mass Effect series.

Yep, total Star Fox vibe. Could make for an interesting side to the game, but I'll have to wait and see. Really interested in how stats and character class will effect the space combat stuff. Also, how would that work in a party?

That looks really really bad...
 
It's not just on rails.  It looks like a really BAD onrails shooter...

I believe they've already said that will be totally possible, but don't quote me on that. You'll have NPC companion characters and such, so I don't doubt you'll be able to interact with them on board.

Who cloned star fox? 

Posted by CitizenJP

This is amazing.

Posted by AlfredoSloth

I think most of the people saying this is terrible compared to JtLS are just not paying attention. JtLS was an EXPANSION pack, and the space combat that this trailer displays is what we will get for the vanilla version of The Old Republic. 
 
I really loved the JtLS, but the simple fact is that SOE decided to delay space for Galaxies because it would divert their time and resources from the ground combat (which turned out to be not that great). Bioware wants to have some element of space combat because that is what most people associate with Star Wars, along with lightsabers. A Star Wars MMO without space would be pretty disappointing. 
 
So please everyone settle down and just be happy with what we have. I'm sure down the line there will be an expansion that focuses primarily on space.....And I bet it's going to be awesome.

No, they don't. People don't bother finding out about shit before they start talking shit about it. Even when I provide the info in my post in the very same thread.

waaaah bioware isn't making a perfect space simulator into their mmo.... just cry a little more people

Posted by Ouroboros

 Definitely not what I expected - is this a railshooter?

Posted by ToxicFruit

Looks okey, hope this is not something you have to do every time you go into space 

Posted by nmarchan

Looks like a slower version of Star Fox.   I wish it was like the X-Wing games. I would be content if it was like the Rogue Squadron games.  This...  I don't know...

Posted by carlthenimrod

I'm really disappointed by the on-rails nature of the space combat. I was hoping for something more open, because ya know, it's suppose to be an MMO.

Posted by Mokes

So much butthurt...
 
I think it looks like an awesome optional mini-game.

Posted by Jayzilla

it still has jedi and sith classes as healers. why not make an mmo using the KOTOR formula of no dedicated healing classes? this baffles me because biowares RPG formula without healing classes is really fun and would be great in ToR too in my opinion.

Posted by Vigorousjammer

I don't know how people can say it's on rails without even playing it...
sure, the camera is fixed... but maybe there's still a way to turn...
 
I'm not sure, I'll have to play it first.

Posted by Isometric

I'll be more enthusiastic when I play this space combat myself.

Posted by EOT

Well. That told me fucking nothing.

Posted by squidracerX
@Vigorousjammer: 
yeah it might not be "on rails" (or it might be), but even so it was still really fast looking and arcady looking, even star wars battlefront 2 looked like it had slower more "calculating" ships, this looked fast enough even with turning (if it has it), that like escort missions would be tough? Or realistic damage would be tough. But maybe it handles different than it looks?

Pretty sure Bioware said it was going to be on-rails beforehand.

This game is going to kick ass. Too bad my laptop won't be able to run it. :(

Posted by smellylettuce

Why bother? So far this seems like a pretty average mmorpg without the rp elements.

YO THEY MADE STAR FOX! SOLD!

Posted by Levio

MMO's are about the worst game to judge by their looks.  Wait, "about" is incorrect.  They are the worst.
 
I'm hoping beyond hope that either this or FF14 will be worth subscribing to.  I only need 1 good MMO that's not WoW, rooting for FF14 but this looks like a good backup.

Posted by BounceDK

The more I see of this game the more boring it looks.

Posted by MackGyver

I can see why this type of flying shooter won't work. In an MMORPG you're given freedom to be who you want and play how you wish. Then they give you the ability to fly and all you get is a rail shooter? So I can't go anywhere I want in my ship and fly to any destination? Oh well.

Posted by Otzlowe

Whoever is in charge of making the NPCs and arbitrarily choosing their proportions needs to be fired double time. 
 
I like stylistic approaches as much as the next guy, but almost all of the NPCs I've seen so far have the ugly stick hanging broken around their shoulders.

" can i import my gummy ship from kingdom hearts? i put a lot of guns and shit on it "

I never looked forward to the gummy ship parts. The customization however was a nice deterrent especially once you figured out what the hell you were doing. I definitely get a gummy ship vibe from this even more so than that Star Fox everyone is talking so much about.
 
I want my giant mass of blocks and guns to go through and waste everything as well.
 
EDIT: To all those bitching about it being on-rails and not having the ability to float around in space are more than welcome to go play EVE Online.

Ok, 
 
DO WANT

Space Combat indeed! Damn this game is going to be epic
