Star Wars: The Old Republic Preview

GameDaily has turned their attention toward BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic, though their article doesn't appear to be based around any hands-on time with the game.
The Sith Warrior, for example, starts on the Sith world of Korriban, where he or she learns the ways of the Force (the Dark Side, naturally) and practices some moves on a few unlucky thieves. If you go with this class, you'll enjoy the always fun Force Choke, a smash attack to knock back enemies, a spinning impale and a Force Charge that launches the character towards his or her opponents. In addition, you'll deflect blaster fire and dual wield lightsabers.

Much of your time will be spent visiting different planets (Korriban, Nal Hutta, Tython, Coruscant and Ord Mantell, among others), interacting with different non-player characters and befriending/intimidating them. Unlike KOTOR, The Old Republic focuses more on tones than responses. You'll be able to strike fear into the hearts of your enemies by level of your voice. Of course, how you behave throughout the game will determine whether you walk the light or dark side of the Force.
