The big MMO news today is that SOE have announced that in Autumn this year they will be releasing a new game. Described as a Virtual World rather than an MMO, this is to be a bright, colourful, kid-friendly, free/freemium game in the Free Realms mould.
And it’s all about Star Wars: Clone Wars. If you’re curious about the Clone Wars setting, check out the blog post below for a description of the animated series and discussion of why the writer prefers it to the films.
One thing is for sure, it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan if you are a MMO gamer. And interestingly, each of these three games represents a very different view of the genre. I think people could happily play more than one, if they have the time.
I have a soft spot for Free Realms, it’s a very cool game if you’re looking for something casual friendly, and I can’t wait to see what Sony do with the best licence in the Star Wars Universe.
