1UP recently added some fuel cells to the fire of the relatively aged rumor
that the result of Bioware and LucasArts' recent collaboration
is an MMORPG which takes place in the long-winded universe of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
. While one could make a case for
this claim, a script for the game, which apparently landed in the laps
of 1UP's digital ink slingers, could prove conclusive evidence for the online epic -- if it's completely legit, that is.
The script details the online game as a "role-playing game set in the historical past of the Star Wars universe," where "Jedi and Sith battle across the galaxy." While those two phrases could apply to many chapters of the Star Wars mythos, the tipster who submitted the script was convinced it carried Bioware's trademark verbosity. We're confused -- how will we be expected to spend hours mindlessly grinding and spawn camping with all of that dialog getting in our way? Hopefully they'll fix that in beta.
