Bioware and E3
Bioware, makers of Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights, are up to something. This interview from E3 on MMORPG.com basically says "we can't tell you anything". There're a number of interesting comments, though. I quote:
The primary high-level goal of BioWare Austin’s project is to apply [...] storytelling to an MMORPG. They want NPCs to be more than "pez dispensers" and players to feel "epic". Whatever they produce, it will be a story driven game.
They also noted things like crafting and economies as extremely interesting to them.
Those sound good, and Bioware haven't really ever put a foot wrong. Neverwinter Nights' included module was a bit dull, but that was never the point of the game - creating your own modules with the Aurora toolkit was what it was for. So I'm looking forward to seeing what they produce with this one.
