Star Wars: The Old Republic's Friday update this week covers the advanced class system and how BioWare developed their own take on class progression. Using the Smuggler as an example (this is a great time to catch a little info on this class!), they break down how the advanced class system will work and what players can expect.
The team wanted players to be comfortable with the core game-play of their class before introducing them to more complex game mechanics, so you will not have immediate access to Advanced Classes at character creation. Instead, the choice will be given upon locating the Advanced Class trainer on your factions capital world. This is a mandatory choice; not picking an Advanced Class is not an option.
So many options! Read more on advanced classes in this developer's blog on the SWTOR official site.
