CLONE WARS ADVENTURES

…unter die­sem Titel stel­len Luca­s­A­rts und Sony Online Enter­tain­ment im Herbst die­sen Jah­res ein »kind­ge­rech­tes« MMO vor, dass auf dem Film und der Trick­se­rie glei­chen Namens basiert. Offen­bar im Sti­le des 2009 gestar­te­ten und eben­falls sehr erfolg­rei­chen Fre­e­Re­alms soll hier ins­be­son­de­re Kin­dern und Jugend­li­chen ein free-to-play MMO gebo­ten wer­den. Selbst­ver­ständ­lich wird es aber auch eine bezahl­te Pre­mi­um-Mit­glied­schaft geben und selbst­ver­ständ­lich gibt es auch die Mög­lich­keit, über Micro-Tran­sac­tions Goo­dies gegen har­te Dol­lars zu erwer­ben (was dar­an »kind­ge­recht« sein soll, will sich mir aller­dings nicht erschließen).

Neben der Mög­lich­keit mit dem Cha­rak­ter durch die Spiel­welt zu lau­fen, soll man auch Raum­schif­fe oder Fahr­zeu­ge wie Spee­de­r­bikes nut­zen kön­nen, zudem will man zahl­lo­se Mini­spie­le ein­bau­en, dar­un­ter auch etwas wie ein Tra­ding Card Game. Eben­falls mög­lich ist das Pro­gram­mie­ren von Robotern.

Na denn… Ich muss zuge­ben, dass mich CLONE WARS auf­grund des Stils der Ani­ma­ti­on so gar nicht reizt, aber ich bin ja offen­sicht­lich auch nicht die Ziel­grup­pe… :o)
