So I was checking Eurogamer to see if they had a new review up for ROTGS and I was surprised at my recent finding.

Eurogamer revealed some new information regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic. Apparently, those eight classes in the game that we know about? They get advanced classes as a form of progression later on.

It reminds me of Ragnarok Online minus the novice point, wherein choosing a class gave you specific options to unlock a specialized version of the class later on. According to the article, your story will progress in the same way regardless of your advanced class choice, but you will have different ways to play to get through that point with two advanced classes per main class.

The example given in the article lists that of the Sith Warrior, which can turn into a Juggernaut (Darth Vader-style) or a Marauder (Darth Maul Style).

Feel free to also check out Eurogamer’s pre-E3 coverage. It’s quite nice.  At least they didn’t botch it like they did their review of Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer.

    Very interesting! I hope this game is as awesome as it sounds. I have the feeling it won’t live up to tge hype tho

    Are you kidding, this game is going to usher in world peace. The hunger crisis of the world will be solved, it will cure aids and cancer and completely eliminate both, and the New York Knicks and New York Rangers will win championships! You can’t quote me on this, but it’s going to happen, you will see.
