This article is a preliminary SWTOR guide that explains details and some background about the game. Star Wars the Old Republic is a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game) by Bioware and LucasArts which is based on the popular big screen film, Star Wars by LucasFilms.

The storyline is driven by the original theme, the never-ending conflict between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. The entire SWTOR story occurs in the time before Dark Vader and Luke Skywalker. SWTOR is all about choosing an alliance a class to play and battling your way through missions and the vast galaxy with your allies.

The game offers unique features including space combat, the availability of crew skills and entire starships to manage. Fans of the movie will be able to experience everything they love about Star Wars first hand, from the cute beeping of R2D2 and his fellow C2PO, encountering familiar races and of course the black market. The available classes are also all derived from characters created in George Lucas’ Star Wars. The known available classes would of course include the popular Jedi. So far, there are eight known classes which are the Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, Trooper, Bounty Hunter, Imperial Agent, Sith Warrior, Sith Inquisitor and the Smuggler class played by Harrison Ford as Hans Solo in the film.

As the story has it, the Galactic Republic’s main mission is to maintain peace and protect the people of the republic. The Republic’s protectors are the SWTOR Jedi Knights of the Jedi order. The other powerful opposing force in Star Wars: the Old Republic is the Sith Empire. Lead by the Dark Emperor, the Empire’s main objective is destroying the Republic and gaining complete power.

The game not only features high tech SWTOR starships to player’s enjoyment, but there are vast planets to explore and land on as well. Known planets so are are: Tython (the Jedi’s home), Korriban, Hutta, Ord Mantell, Coruscant, Balmorra, Alderaan, Tatooine, Dromundkaas, Taris, Belsavis, Voss, Hoth, Nar Shaddaa, Corellia, Ilum and Quesh. With that many number of planets, imagine just how large a game SWTOR is. Well folks, that’s it for our introductory SWTOR guide.

LucasArts

SWTOR is the newest installment from LucasArts, founded by the famous George Lucas. The company was established since 1982 as George wanted to branch out to other types of media rather than just movies and novels. Most gamers should be familiar with the latest title by LucasArts, Star Wars The Force Unleashed II which is known for its compelling story and engaging combat system.

SWTOR LucasArts is scheduled to be released around September 2011. However, latest news has cited that LucasArts and Electronics Arts would like to push back the games release until the first quarter of 2012. Planning to set a new trend for MMORPG genre, LucasArts adds lots of new features and game mechanics to have a game which players will feel more interacted with the game as their actions will have an effect on the storyline and NPCs’ reaction. The classes are also not limited to the traditional type with healer, tank, DPS and such. Players can customize their role on the fly which will change the nature of the game for good. No more playing a class that you don’t like just to fill up the missing role in the group. This is something SWTOR LucasArts is trying to bring to the market.
