The Old Republic – The Esseles Flashpoint Dev Walkthrough (Video)
A new video for the Old Republic has been released — no, this is not another trailer or cinematic. This one showcases a play through of an early mission for Republic heroes titled “The Esseles.” Dallas Dickinson, Director of Production, walks the viewers through the video as the heroes fight their way to the bridge of a transport vessel under attack by an Imperial battlecruiser.
Watch the walkthrough here:
I can’t say I’m fond of this group conversation mechanic. Each player selects an answer, then a random die roll determines which player actually gets to speak? And the chosen player is rewarded with a “social point bonus?” How is this compelling? It’s a lottery of verbiage.
Also, I liked how Dickinson kept calling the players “heroes” after they decided to vent the engineers into space. Our brave, valiant heroes turned their backs on the innocent engineers, whose screams were quickly silenced by the vacuum of the great black beyond.
