Bioware has recently revealed Flashpoints for Star Wars: The Old Republic. That’s the name for group missions in this game and the devs promise those missions will be challenging, being worth the run, as players will get nice loot and rewards, if they succeed.
We all know missions, quests or whatever the game calls them, are the leveling core of the current MMOs. Some of them, like Flashpoints, are designed for groups, pushing them towards difficult goals and tough enemies. What I wonder is how difficult these missions are going to be. Nowadays, with the exception of very few ones, MMOs are easy and require more planning than ability. If Bioware plans to provide real hard challenges, avid gamers, then this looks great.
Band together with your most trusted allies to undertake some of the most dangerous missions in the galaxy! Flashpoints are action-packed, story-driven adventures that test a group of players to their limits, putting them up against difficult foes in volatile situations. You and your group need your wits, your skills, and all your resources to emerge victorious. Every Flashpoint begins with an exciting story and contains difficult decisions – choose carefully, because your group’s choices have a meaningful impact on the challenges you’ll face, the enemies you’ll fight, and the outcome of the story! All the danger is certainly worthwhile; the rewards from Flashpoints are some of the most powerful you’ll find.
As a presentation, Taral V, a mid level mission, was presented along with a cool video. This mission will be part of the Flashpoint system SWTOR will feature once it comes out. Have a look and enjoy.
Continuing with the titanic effort needed to make any AAA MMO, Bioware reveals Flashpoints for SWTOR, one of the titles I really want to see released as soon as possible. Until then, I hope you enjoyed this video. For more information about this new group mission system, visit the official website.
