In an interview with PC Gamer, BioWare Director James Ohlen shared an interesting nugget about the recently launched Star Wars: The Old Republic: that in the early stages of development, before they had nailed down the Star Wars license with Lucasarts, the doors were wide open as to which story-rich property they might attach their game to.
Obviously all went well and they ended up building on the experience garnered from their original Knights of the Old Republic RPG, but some of the alternatives they were considering are very intriguing indeed:
“We had backup plans,” said Ohlen. “In all the design team was like three of us at that point, in total. So we were looking at doing a Lord of the Rings MMO, a Silmarillion MMO, a kind of a Gunslinger-esque Dark Tower MMO, a Game of Thrones MMO.”To find out how their Star Wars venture turned out, swing by our latest review
Star Wars: The Old Republic launched yesterday in North America and Europe, but is not due for a local release in Australia until Autumn 2012.
