My son and I were ecstatic when we were able to make it to The Old Republic (MMO RPG) panel. We were able to see a new trailer for the game and view the Sith prologue. We learned that there will be 8 classes of characters to choose from. There is a unique story for each class. You will be able to switch classes and they have made sure that there will be no duplicate missions. The game follows a "story & choice" format and this is BioWare's first "Full Voiceover MMO". Voice talents such as, David Hayter, Catherine Taber and Holly Fields are featured in the game. Pre-Orders began on Thursday on origin.com and at the end of the panel, all in attendance received a pre-order code! Woo Hoo! They finally gave us a release date (kind of)-Holiday 2011.
Next up was Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 4 Panel. I had goose bumps pretty much the entire time! Season 4 has been given the title- "Battle Lines". Which, according to Dave Filoni, means "lots of Boom!". We got to see some clips from the new season. From the trailer, we got to see Mon Calamari and "Captain" Ackbar in action. "Death Watch" is back and with a female captain, voiced by BSG's Katee Sackhoff. Jon Favreau will also be returning to do the voice of Pre Vizsla. Dave also let us know that Lux, Cad Bane and Bossk will also be returning.
Towards the end of the panel, some Night Sisters joined Dave on the stage. He shared that they were one of his favorite things in Season 3. As a special treat for the attendees, we got to see an unfinished scene, featuring the Night Sisters, from Season 4 that even George Lucas himself has not seen yet! Lucky us!
That was pretty much it for my Star Wars panels. I did try to make it to the "Her Universe" panel, but couldn't due to my son and I being able to make it to an advance screening for "Captain America". It's so hard to keep my priorities in check. But I did receive this email from "Her Universe" and you can check out what they've been up to, so far. I will do my best to get more info. for you over the course of the weekend.
