Star Wars: The Old Republic Preview

Gaming Illustrated provides a quick pre-E3 preview of Star Wars: The Old Republic, essentially summing up everything we've learned so far.
As typical to MMOs, players will have to choose whether to be on the light or dark side of the Force, but as with many of the most beloved video games out there, every decision you make shapes the choices and situations you are faced with in the future. The characters you encounter have motives both seen and unseen as well, and you will find that determining friends and foes is not always as easy as it might seems Every choice the player makes will determine the loyalty of those closest to them, often in ways that are unpredictable and unforeseen.

There are currently four announced classes of characters for the Republic forces Trooper, Smuggler, Jedi Knight and Jedi Counsular. The trooper features a ton of firepower and their rifle set is their best friend. They wear a ton of armor and look to be a real fun class to play. Up next is the Smuggler, who relies on stealth and trickery in combat to tip the scales in their favor. The Jedi Knights are capable of extraordinary feats of combat using their lightsabers and special powers. Finally, there are Jedi Consulars who haven't been defined just yet but look to be an offshoot of the Jedi with more of a priest-like quality to them.

On the side of the Sith there are also four announced classes Bounty Hunter, Sith Warrior, Imperial Agent and Sith Inquisitor. All of these roles have unique abilities from their Republic counterparts.
