New SWTOR Video Helps You Choose Your Side

In the universe of Star Wars: The Old Republic, the battle lines have been drawn between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire. With eight different classes to choose from, the debate rages on — even among the developers — which side and class would triumph in a showdown. In the first of a four-part series, the creative forces behind the game face off in support of their favored class.

The first match-up sets the noble Jedi Knight against the ruthless Bounty Hunter. Pitting close-range melee and Force powers against an array of ranged weapons and gadgets, you'll discover that the answer isn't as clear-cut as you might imagine. Jedi Knights can choose to disregard the Jedi Code in their journey just as easily as Bounty Hunters can choose to define their own moral compass.

Siding with the Republic's agents of justice are Senior Writer Hall Hood and Designer Austin Peckenpaugh, while Senior System Designer Pete Warner and Writer Randy Begel argue for coldblooded guns-for-hire. Watch them weigh in on the debate in the video on the official site and decide for yourself.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is the new groundbreaking MMORPG from BioWare that combines their expertise in role-playing games with the expansive Star Wars universe. Create your own character from a wealth of customizable options, gather companions to form a crew, group up with like-minded players to enter intense missions, and prepare to do battle for the fate of the galaxy.
