Recently I’ve been looking for a game to play during my winter break from college. Everyone has their own personal preference of games they will and they also have a list of games that would never play at all. One of my favorite genre of games is mmorpg (massively multiplayer online role-playing game). However there are over a hundred plus mmoprg out there so picking one out of hundreds is pretty hard. So after searching for a couple of days the mmorpg that I’ve decided to give a try and that I’ve been playing for a couple of weeks is Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR).
SWTOR takes place during the time of tenuous peace between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, 300 years after Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 (SWKOTOR 1 & 2) and 3,500 years before the Star Wars films. During the 28 year long Great Galactic War, the Jedi took responsible for the success of the sith (which soon lead to the Treaty of Coruscant prior to the start of the cold wars). The Jedi Order relocated from Coruscant to Tython and the Sith had control over Korriban which they restored the Sith Academy.
In the game you can pick whether you want to join the Sith Empire or Galactic Republic. There are 8 classes (4 sith empire, 4 galactic republic) and 16 advance classes (each class gets 2 advance classes). The classes for the Sith Empire are Bounty Hunter, Sith Warrior, Imperial Agent, and Sith Inquisitor. And the classes for the Galactic republic are Trooper, Smuggler, Jedi Knight, and Jedi Consular. Whether you pick serving the Empire or the Republic your mortal choices will be tested. For example you can be a Jedi and make dark side choices or you can be a sith and make light side choices or choice to be in the middle.
Here is a trailer that will show you the different classes and a slight look into there background.
As for myself I’ve chosen to be a Sith Warrior because normally when I pick a game to play I go down the good path so I decided o give it a try. After playing for almost 2 weeks I have to say I’m loving the Sith Warrior story line. I also love the fact that whatever choices I make i will effect what happens to my character and the NPCs around me as I get further in the story.
There are two options you can pick while playing the game. You can either be free to play (F2P) which there are a lot of resurrections or you can pay $15 a month to pay (P2P). For myself I’m FEP since I’ve been busy with school work and once my winter break starts I’ll be P2P. I highly recommend this game if you love Star Wars like I do. Is it different from other mmoprg? Not really, its kind of like WoW with Star wars lol but this is just my opinion.
If you are or are interested in playing my Sith Warrior name is Mocca and I’m on the Shadowland server. Feel free to send me a message and maybe we can play together. c:
