GameReactorTV Talks with SWTOR Senior Writer Hall Hood

Text below take from TorWars and writer Acea Engen, original article here.

GameReactorTV recently chased down Hall Hood, a Senior Writer for BioWare on Star Wars: The Old Republic. They were able to take a decent bit of time and chat with Hood, mostly regarding story and writing for SWTOR.

In the interview they primarily discuss story-related aspects of SWTOR, and what it was like to tackle the different storylines of the classes from Mr. Hood’s perspective. One particular point of note is Hood’s discussion on drawing players to Non-Force using classes; and how when it came to Imperial Agent and Trooper storylines; BioWare had plenty of story-telling freedom, as they are some of the least-explored classes.

Mr. Hood also talks about how the writers of SWTOR approach the job much like you would approach writing for a TV series, as they will have major story-arcs concluded; but unanswered questions will be left to keep players engaged. The video is inter-cut with gameplay footage and is worth a watch. Check it out below.
