Star Wars: The Old Republic Preview

BioWare Austin's Star Wars: The Old Republic is the subject of yet another generalized preview, and this time it's the folks at Snackbar Games bringing us the reading material.
The story can be played through by yourself if you so choose, along with story-based instances that can support squads of four players. In those instances, any choices to be made are chosen by essentially rolling a die. Whoever rolls highest gets to choose what decision the team goes with.

The gameplay looks very WoW-ish, and one of the big announcements was the addition of large-scale raids to the game. During these, multiple groups can team up to take on tougher instances that will also yield very lucrative loot that you can't get outside of these events. We saw one in action and it definitely seems that every person will be needed to be successful.
