Hey, im new to the SWG community, and i am a HUGE star wars fan!
Anyways, just wanted to say hi, and ask a few questions.

1. Can you drive vehicules such as AT-AT's (cuz you see one walking in the trailer), or are you litmited to small speeders and such.
2. With the mandalorian armor, can i use the jet pack. Cuz my all-time favorite character is Boba Fett, and i'm dying to play as a bounty hunter.
3. Will the figthing be regular RPG fights, or JKII style action? (specially for the saber fights).
4. What is a more accurate release date. Or is fall 2002 the only current one.
5. How many people per server will be supported ?

Well, thats all i can think of for now. Cya you guys around the boards.

Hi. Welcome. :D

1. Probably, but you will probably have to be a declared imperial. There still aren't a lot of details on vehicles yet.

2. Probably. However the Developers have said that Mandalorian Armor will be very rare.

3. It's going to be something totally new, but most like the RPG fights. They are going to have a system of move "cards" you key up to create a series of actions.

4. Fall 2002 is the best date we have. The dates that say Spring 2003 are all old. The Dev's have repeatedly said Fall 2002.

5. We don't yet have any idea.

Just a few things to add.

1. Actually though it will be difficult it will be possible to steal Imperial equipment and use it for the Rebel or criminal cause. And I am almost postive you will be able to use AT-AT, though I do not know if they will be available from the start or in later patch or expansion, and they will probably be very expensive and difficult to obtain, even for imperials...if they were easy they would crush everyone on site...lol.

2. I am sure the Devs will make it so all Boba-Fett (Jango-Fett) wannabes will be statisfied...though like Jedi wannabes it will be difficult to obtain those items.

3. What MikeC said...because the devs do not want to give the edge to "twitch" gamers, who play too much Quake or JKII...plus they want to make it 56K friendly.

4. Yep Fall 2002, the devs recently have stated that from the bigman himself they have been given, more resources ($$$) in order to finish the game by November 2002, it is just financially smart to do it in the holiday season.

5. No idea the details of were the servers are even going to be have not been made public either...I know the devs were looking at some in Asia, but for sure I believe they will have some in U.S. and in Europe, as for how many....????

You are making an assumption on #1. I think I saw something somewere about the Hutts being able to steal equipment, but there has been no definite word yet on if/what the Rebels will be able to steal. Frankly, I think it would be in much better keeping with SW and the way the Rebels operated for them to be able to steal the imps stuff.

I totally disagree with you on #2. There will be a lot of disapointed Boba-Fett wanabes because most of them will not even be able to get their hands on Mandalorian Armor. Those that do are going to have every bad *** in the game gunning for them as well (weather for bragging rights, to get the armor, or whatever).

Well looks like all your questions were answered.... WAIT NO THEY HAVEN'T!!!

The final release date is...December 2002. But as I understand it that's like an emergency release date if they have problems with the server stuff or beta, otherwise it will be earlier in the fall.

Anyway..I'm going to buy SWG for sure...I luv it. All the info that is coming out makes me :nut: .

I dont have anything intelligent to say at the moment...and I need to get back to my studying. So...cu guys around !(on the forum that is).
