Ok, you probably won't know some of these, but what the heck.
1. Is there a single player mode, or is it online only?
2. Will there be 3rd party mods? (this is why i play games)
3. I heard you can "join the army" in the game, what sort of stuff can you do? AT-ST pilot? biker scout? or just a be a regular stormy?

1) online only, and you can't set up servers. Only official servers.

2) no third party mods. This is not half-life.

3) haha, funny enough, neither of your suggestions! :D However, you'll be able to get ranks by performing missions (quests), and ranks gives you the right to place turrets and defences, order troopers, and even vehicles (thus far, the AT-ST is the biggest, but they promised to give a try at the AT-ST). And, of course, you can join battles and give the other side a bashing!

Ha, right. I've only played half-life once onlineand I hated it. I played jedi outcast online and after getting kicked out of 20 games in 5 mins because of my slightly high ping (and i thought the bigger number, the better) i've grown a strong dis-liking to online games. Maybe I'll wait awhile after it comes out and buy it when the price goes down. Don't want to pay too much for a game that preforms terrible on my PC, but still have it for when i get faster internet. Also, what do you mean by "official" servers? Does this mean its going to cost money to play even after you buy the game, like some other *cough* *cough* online RPGs? Hell, I though RPG stood for "Rocket propelled grenade". Guess not. Oh well, thanks for clearning that stuff up, though i was sort of hoping for speeder bikes. I guess it's come down from "I'm getting this game when I comes out!" to "um, I'll get it whenever".

Yeah you'll have to pay a monthly fee somewhere between $10-15, to keep the servers up.

Slurpy what type of connection do you have? I'd suggest cable if you don't have it.

I've got a dialup 56k, I only pay $90 a year, thats like what, $8 a month? anyway, i searched through a faq at the swgalaxies.net site and it said a 56k w/ 1.0 Gig , 256 megs of ram, and a geforce 3 should run fine. I'll probably still buy the game, even if it is a rip off. Freaking, its starwars, right? I still don't get why there's no single player, though. Wouldn't it be the exact same as multiplayer, just without other human players? Maybe that'll make a good expansion pack for us cheap bas***rds.

Okay so 56k does work fine on SWG, I still like my cable connection even though its $50 a month combined with cable t.v.

Eh, no, it's not the same. Basically, the most fun stuff in mmorpgs is the other players. Without them, it would be pretty useless.

BTW, you will be able to check out AT-STs, AT-ATs and troops of STs on battlefields. Should be a blast. GO EMPIRE!!!!!
