Enjoy a full mission of The Old Republic with commentary

1:00 PM on 07.31.2011 // Smurgesborg

BioWare was kind enough to provide us with a preview video that showcases the entire Esseles flashpoint mission from Star Wars: The Old Republic.  Those I've discussed this game with have been praising this mission for its depth, telling me it occurs as early as level 10 or so.  Now you can see the entire thing for yourself without being in the beta.  If you're curious about The Old Republic you need to watch this walkthrough.  It's far more informative than the average game trailer.

Dallas Dickinson (Director of Production) provides commentary as the video showcases the mission's story, morality choices, and gameplay from 4 different character classes.  Coming from someone who does not really enjoy MMOs:  This video is impressive.

Really, out of everything here I'm most impressed by how much story they've injected into an MMO.  You know what kind of narrative I usually expect from an early mission in an MMO?  Epic tales involving berry picking and elk hunting.  I heard that people with reservations get early access.  Who's gonna hop on that?
