The thing is I don't see how this translates to an MMO. The developers are talking a lot how they want to have a progressive story and not just be a mindless leveling up of quests with no real impact to things. Ok I get that, but umm once you complete the story element then what?
It sounds like it'll just be KOTOR, but with you able to interact with other players. I'm sure there will be 'guild' type elements to it, but I know they've also said the storyline and a lot of the game will be able to be completed solo.
