Second, Orion Kellogg, the Audio Producer at LucasArts, gives us an in-depth look at what it takes to create the sound for a storytelling masterpiece like SWTOR. Part of what Kellogg explains involves finding just the right speech pattern and voice work for the different characters and species. "To cast the characters, we've scoured film, television, theater, and beyond to make these characters feel as unique and interesting as they deserve to be," Kellogg assures the readers in the blog. Then he continues to explain that the feel of a game comes not only from the voice work, but also from music and sound effects. Be sure to read the whole blog here.
Next, Sean Dahlberg tells us in the Official SWTOR forums that the developers want to reveal something extra about Comic*Con, but they need your help. SWTOR wants 200,000 "likes" on Facebook for the fan page, and 30,000 followers on Twitter, before July 23rd. Currently, it stands at 138,574 "likes" and 18,928 followers. It seems like an accomplishable goal -- can it be done? The secret should be huge for this much build up.
Finally, the team revealed a new documentary video called Music of the Old Republic. As the name suggests, we are shown just what it takes to create the music behind this epic game. "This is, without a doubt, the biggest music project I have ever worked on," explains Jesse Harlin, LucasArts Music Supervisor, in the video. "The game is shipping with five and a half hours of original music. Which is gigantic. Then, in addition to that, we are including the music from the original KOTORs and music from John William's films." Be sure to catch the whole behind-the-scenes video below.
