A more story driven Chapter 5

Recommended Posts

Ive been playing around with the idea for chapter 5 story expansions I've come up with a rough idea and want to see what people think (yes I know this may sound similar to other game storylines)

 

First we are introduced to the individual classes soundly something on each of their starships like at the start of the rothc then each of them are contacted by someone from their past before the origin world stories or something ie Darth nox's slave family or the agents mysterious ally then they all follow up this lead about something sinister rising in the galaxy that kind of has an illuminati feel to it something working behind the scenes random assassinations of leading republic empire Sith and Jedi factions and no-one knows what's going on then as if like clockwork outer rim systems republic and empire go dark and then the classes must awash go on their individual search for answers learning something deep and meaningful about themselves and their companions to find this mysterious threat and a way to stop it. Concluding chapter 5 will be a point where the character discovers a way to get to the homeworld of this threat and stop it. However there should be a massive twist that results in both the empire and republic being brought to it's knees and forced to work together meanwhile it shows the classes trapped on the homeworld surrounded by enemy forces on this suicide mission so they seem to be doomed while the galaxy burns

 

What do you think?

BioWare have said that they will not be continuing individual class stories.

 

Instead we'll get universal updates like Rise of the Hutt Cartel.

 

Not true, they hinted at doing the class stories again later, but it takes work. They said class stories would be part of a "bigger expansion"

There have been hints in the game's code there may be new class stories in the future. If I had to guess, it would probably only come in a large expansion where adding a new planet or two as well as a new level cap after Makeb would apply.

I'd dig up the quote, but they were outright asked if they were doing class stories. And their response though vague and filled with PR was basically no. But if you can dig up the quote for that I'd be interested.

 

EDIT: Found mine, from a developer Q&A with Darth Hater:

 

Where does the development team stand with regards to individual class stories? Are these still a priority for upcoming content?

 

Great question. The way you choose to overcome your own personal villains is a crucial part of what defines your character, and once you’ve gotten closure on your personal story, you’re ready to be a key player in the larger conflicts that threaten the Empire and the Republic. Moving forward, we’re focusing on those stories – conflicts that decide the fate of the entire Galaxy and demand the attention of other living legends like yourself. You can still put your personal touch on these stories, and you’ll develop relationships just like before, but now the stakes are higher, and the experience can be shared with your friends.

 

You get the idea. That was back in March this year.

I need to dig up the quote now, but they told Dulfy they're not off the cards...

 

You've got to remember, that interview was before Makeb, and they heard how many people didn't even finish Makeb, let alone do it multiple times.

 

Oh, and the poll, even if it doesn't represent the entire fan base, class stories came up as the most wanted thing to come in the game...

The problem with putting in a THIRD faction is that now you have to add more classes, develop individual stories for them and somehow tie it all in to the greater storyline of the Galactic Republic vs. Sith Empire.

 

And let me state emphatically that I hope BioWare DOES NOT bring the Vong into this story. Doing so out in the EU ruined it in my opinion. We don't need that here. Plus, bringing the Vong into SWTOR sort of fudges up the storyline for the future of Star Wars. And before you say, "Well this was 3000 years before Star Wars, so they could have forgotten about the Vong by then.", let me cap that right off. As powerful and dangerous as the Vong were made in the EU, you cannot use the argument that the Republic or Sith would forget about them after dozens of centuries later.

 

Give the Devs their due and time... they'll come up with something to give us more story-driven stuff in the next Expac in the future.

When I said a third faction I don't mean a faction about a power similar to the republic or empire I mean a force like say the reapers or collectors from mass effect as in having a massive story behind them but with no need for more classes for the specific faction I think an excellent faction to add as a complete enemy faction to everyone(no classes needed for it) would be a resurgence of the infinite empire led by things such as the rakata box on tatooine that tried to use czerka to get back, or maybe even the architects the ancient race who came up with the hyperspace anomaly(in probably wrong on this bit of fact but I think I read it somewhere) a faction that's more advanced and more powerful than the republic or empire being a fanboy my ideal chapter 5 and 6 is a very long drawn out storyline beginning with each normal class being hinted that something rising outside of the republic or empire then after the classes' own personal storyline to reintroduce u to your character after the long time between expansions have a mass effect 2 like ending to chapter 5 leaving it on a note where you are trapped wherever u may be confronting the threat.

Another thing I would love is if they made the companions for each class essential in the storyline even treek and hk 51 something that engages you with your companions that makes you really care o saw great potential for the trooper ending against rakton instead of just storming the bastion if it had a massive battle say in space, above coruscant etc and when you went to face rakton with your chosen companion it should have had a moment when you were in doubt as a player as to whether your character would actually succeed like where tanno Vick and the rest are being overrun with imperials and the soldiers are being gunned down or something like it I hated how for the entire storyline u knew in the end you would succeed if there wad more uncertainty I feel it would have been better but I understand how hard it would be to make a storyline like thatb in a mmo

 

I suppose all we can do is wait and pray
