Star Wars: The Old Republic Warzones, New Species Revealed

We have seen some of this pass by in the E3 previews, but the official Star Wars: The Old Republic site rounds up their special E3 page (which also includes the E3 trailer, G4 TV playthrough and ship/customization videos we have linked to during E3) with this announcement of warzones and two new playable species, the Chiss and Twi'lek.
War Zones

It's time to defend your allegiance. As the war heats up, heroes are needed on both sides and it's not enough to fight alone. Unite with your allies from all over the galaxy and travel to the War Zones to defend the Republic or the Empire!

War Zones are specifically tailored for team versus team combat, and players will experience fierce battles between the Republic and Empire, evoking memories of the famous Star Wars ground conflicts.

This week we announced that the first War Zone will be located in the majestic mountains of Alderaan. Players will join their allegiance's fight for control of several important areas. Over time we'll reveal more information about the Player versus Player experiences in The Old Republic.

Playable Species

The Ratattaki was the first non-human species we announced in The Old Republic and we showed them being played as butt-kicking Bounty Hunters. Today we are revealing that as a stealthy Imperial Agent you can choose to be a Chiss and as a charming Smuggler you can choose to be a Twi'lek. There is more information coming on these, and other, playable species at a later date, so stay tuned to The Old Republic website.
