The first time we were given a true hint of the identity of BioWare's
upcoming MMOG, the Ten Ton Hammer staff decided to give interested
gamers a taste of what they could expect in a few of the classes that
we were fairly certain would make their way into the game. As the
resident Star Wars nerd, I volunteered for fairly formidable task by
quickly raising a lightsaber wielding hand.
Now that the official announcement
for Star Wars: The Old Republic
come and gone, I thought it might be worthwhile to again take a look at
the background behind each of the three classes that I explored in my
editorials. Take a look, read the editorials, then make sure you drop
us a line in our forums
Unlike the Sith that I discuss in my editorial,
the Sith Lords that BioWare describes are intriguing. Rather than
making the Sith a purely evil class, the developers at BioWare have put
an interesting spin on the Sith Empire and the Sith Lord class in
general. Rather than making the Sith Lords purely Dark Side, it seems
that BioWare is allowing for "good" Sith Lords to be created.
