GamesCom: The Old Republic Coverage

Posted By Mike on August 17, 2011

GamesCom 2011 is currently underway in Cologne, Germany and the big news coming out of the convention in regards to Star Wars: The Old Republic revolves around the demo of the Operation: Eternity Vault raid. This particular raid was first previewed back in June during E3. See the video below for a reminder of the raid's trailer.

Well, now the actual gameplay of the raid has been demonstrated per the next video courtesty of GameSpy.com.

For more of a written breakdown of what was revealed by the Eternity Vault demo at GamesCom, visit PCGamer.com.

We'll be sure to continually update this post as more SWTOR news comes out of the convention, which runs until August 21.

UPDATE: More TOR news coming out of Gamescom includes the introduction of the Huttball Player vs. Player Warzone. SWTOR.com provides a new trailer that you can view here along with the following description:

"In a time of turmoil where two mighty armies ready themselves, many citizens of both the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire have begun to look for an escape from the uncertainty of impending war. For many people on Nar Shaddaa this escape can be found in the gladiatorial confines of ?The Pit,? where two teams compete in a violent game for the amusement of Giradda the Hutt and thousands of spectators!

We are excited to reveal ?Huttball,? one of the Player-vs-Player (PvP) Warzones in Star Wars?: The Old Republic?! Watch the video to see how the game is played and be sure to check back to SWTOR.com for the latest news and updates!"

Forging ahead, PCGamer.com dives into the accessibility of raids in The Old Republic and IGN has a nice overview write-up on TOR's presence at GamesCom.

TechSpot.com reports that EA will be limiting digital and retail copies of Star Wars: The Old Republic, whenever it is released, in order to create a smooth launch without servers crashing.
