During Comic-Con last week, visitors had a chance to play through “The Esseles”, one of the early Flashpoint group missions for Star Wars: The Old Republic. This is what that looked like.
The Old Republic‘s director of production. Dallas Dickinson. provides the play-by-play as a group of young Republic heroes take on their first big group missions, securing a damaged freighter from and its high-profile cargo from Imperial forces. It’s an excellent demonstration of the game’s cooperative gameplay, multiplayer dialog trees, and just how unfulfilling it is to watch other people having fun playing massively multiplayer Star Wars.
