SWTOR is "biggest MMO project ever"

French and German versions promised.

LucasArts president Darrell Rodriguez has declared Star Wars: The Old Republic is "the biggest MMO project ever developed".

He was joined on stage at EA's gamescom conference by BioWare's Ray Muzyka, who confirmed the game will feature "more than 40 novels' worth of content".

Rodriguez went on to announce that LucasArts is "completely localising the entire game in German and French". In other words, "Every character will have his, her or its own German, French or English voice."

To emphasise the point, they then played the SWTOR trailer from E3 again - but this time with a voiceover in German. Ja.

A release date for SWTOR has yet to be announced.
