    Star Wars: The Old Republic

    Due to be released at the end of the month overseas, Star Wars: The Old Republic has got alot of hype to live up to. Set 300 years after the Knights of the Old Republic series, this new game fully embraces the massive multiplayer online role-playing game based style.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic has been a long time in the making... What do you guys think? Keen to give it a try? Sith Empire or Galactic Republic? Is the force strong with this one or does it take more than a light sabre and force powers to make a good game now?

    Here's the official website description:
    Play Star Wars: The Old Republic and be the hero of your own Star Wars saga in a story-driven massively-multiplayer online game from BioWare and LucasArts. Explore an age thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader when war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy.

    Choose to be a Jedi, a Sith, or from a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, and make decisions which define your personal story and determine your path down the light or dark side of the Force. Along the way you will befriend courageous companions who will fight at your side or possibly betray you based on your actions. Together, you will battle enemies in dynamic Star Wars combat and team up with other players to overcome incredible challenges.

    Bit more info:

    PROFESSIONAL CLASSIFICATIONS
    In the decades since the Great War began, a careful study of professional classifications, or classes, has identified several archetypes of great interest. Individuals belonging to these classes gravitate towards key roles in history-making events. Because of the likelihood that representatives of these archetypes will shape the future of the galaxy, a closer analysis of each class is warranted and is posted here for further study and discussion.



    STARSHIPS
    Though starships have been traveling hyperspace for millennia, the technology propelling these ships is always evolving. Advanced shielding and weaponry must also be outfitted for any starships venturing outside secured hyperlanes. In the years of the Great War, shipbuilders crafted a new generation of starships. Republic and the Imperial engineers developed a variety of unique designs for official use, but some of the most advanced models have surfaced on the black market, where Bounty Hunters, Smugglers, and pirates pay high prices to acquire the most advanced technologies available.



    ALLEGIANCES
    As the most advanced civilization in the known galaxy, the Galactic Republic has stood united for more than 21,000 years. Protected by the legendary Jedi Order, the Republic has defeated all its enemies, including the original Sith Empire in the Great Hyperspace War. Rising from the ashes of that defeat, however, and led by an unnaturally long-lived Dark Emperor, the Sith rebuilt and returned to exact their vengeance. The Great War between Empire and Republic raged for years until a reprieve from constant conflict was defined in the Treaty of Coruscant. The tension between these two fundamentally opposed superpowers has not abated, though, and the return to war is widely considered to be inevitable. When that day comes, neutrality will not be an option. Everyone will be forced to choose which side they will give their allegiance to.



    GALAXY
    The known galaxy is more than 100,000 light-years in diameter and consists of billions of star systems. Among these star systems, current estimates suggest there are more than one million inhabited worlds—many of them still unknown. At the current time, several planetary systems have been singled out for further study. It is on these worlds that analysts believe the future of the galaxy will be decided. Profiles of these planetary bodies are available here.

    There has been 17 planets named so far including:
    -Thython
    -Korriban
    -Hutta
    -Ord Mantell
    -Coruscant
    -Balmorra
    -Alderaan
    -Tatooine

    Looks Huge!
