BioWare Unveils Star Wars: The Old Republic's Jedi Knight

image

Look out, here come the Knights of The Old Republic at last.

We all knew this one was coming - in fact, the only real surprise in BioWare's reveal of the Jedi Knight class for Star Wars: The Old Republic is that four other classes were announced before it. It may have been a long time coming, but the Jedi - and the lightsaber - are perhaps the most iconic image there is of the Star Wars universe, and certainly the defining image of BioWare's KotOR games, so it's nice to see a proper reveal at last.

The Jedi is the third Republic class to be unveiled thus far, joining the Trooper and the Smuggler as the good guys. Assuming the pattern continues, the next of the three yet-to-be-revealed classes will be a dastardly member of the Sith Empire alongside the Bounty Hunter and the Sith Warrior. As for what else there could be ... unfortunately for Penny Arcade's Tycho, my guess is that there probably won't be a Protocol Droid class, but I could see the Sith getting an HK-47 clone of their own.

It's interesting that they specify "Sith Warrior," so I could also imagine a caster-type Sith as well. You know, kind of frail physically, but able to rip your spine through your nostrils with a wave of his finger.

We can speculate all we want about the three remaining classes - and feel free to - but right now there's just one class in the spotlight. So, what does the HoloNet have to say about the Jedi Knight, Guardian of the Republic?

Valiant, Determined, Guardian of Peace

A symbol of hope in dark times, the Jedi Knight stands for the legacy of the Jedi Order-more than twenty-thousand years of protecting the Republic and keeping the peace across the galaxy. Though Jedi Knights have served as generals, guerilla fighters, and warriors for generations, their legendary combat prowess faces its greatest test during this age.

Through years of disciplined training and meditation, the Jedi Knight hones body and mind into perfect harmony. Combining the foresight of the Force with unrivaled reflexes and practiced physical precision, the Knight turns combat into an art form, gracefully executing acrobatic feats in tandem with elegant lightsaber tactics.

A source of inspiration to allies and intimidation to adversaries, the Jedi Knight's presence is welcome in any confrontation. The Order's long history of fighting for justice has earned the trust of countless friends and the hate of innumerable enemies. Few, though, are foolish enough to challenge a seasoned Jedi Knight unless they have the skills and technology to even the odds.

Facing the Dark Side

The Jedi's dark counterparts scored many victories during the war, expanding their Empire, and putting the Republic on the defensive. Since the Treaty of Coruscant, the Sith have consolidated their military might, even while the Jedi have withdrawn to Tython, a move that's been looked at with suspicion by many of the Republic's politicians. Nonetheless, the war is far from over, and the Jedi Knight's resolve remains firm. With unwavering allegiance to the Republic and the light side of the Force, the Jedi Knight fights with valiant determination, wading into the thick of any battle to protect freedom and democracy and hold fast against those who oppose it.

No matter how dire circumstances may become, the Jedi Knight trusts the Force and keeps a cool head. Knowledge and self-control are the critical components of wise decisions, and emotional and mental clarity are an absolute necessity. Maintaining focus allows the Knight to rely on intuition; a right mind leads to right action.

For many, the Jedi Knight is the guardian of a precious dream; a dream of peace, a dream of justice, a dream of a brighter future. The fate of the galaxy depends upon the Knight's ability to keep this dream alive.

Cool stuff. Unless the fourth Republic class is really, really awesome, I have to say I see myself going with the whole "Jedi" thing. If only so I can make lightsaber noises to myself while I play.

Community's been waiting on this a long time. Plenty of speculation is around about how the classes will specialize, the Jedi Knights in particular. Will players be able to hone their lightsaber skills in a Guardian path, while others develop Force powers as Consulars?

I note that BioWare's announcement, while exciting, is mum on these issues.

I'm not really surprised. We all knew this was coming. Still not enough to convince me to roll Light Side. I'll stick to my Bounty Hunter because wrist mounted flamethrowers are just too cool for school the Jedi.

Unless we get an Assassin droid class, in which case I might just nerdgasm.

The short-but-sweet videos they have up make the Jedi look more badass than the Sith Warrior :D

Huh, well, I'll be making one of each class anyway just to experience all the stories, but this has me wondering whether or not to make the Trooper first like I planned, or to go with Jedi Knight first...

Go with Trooper first. Avoid the massive lagz that will come from everyone and their dog's sister's step-cousin rolling Jedi.

Ahh, the greatest problem with a Star Wars MMORPG. I WANT to roll a Jedi, but the fact that 3/4 of the game population will do the same kinda sours me on the idea. I wouldn't be suprised if Jedi Knights (and Sith Warriors) eventually get the same rep as Night Elf Hunters... ;)

Death to the Jedi. Power to the Sith Empire.

Actually, from what I've seen, a shocking amount of people are talking about rolling anything but Force-users first. Most are going for Bounty Hunter or Smuggler first.

Oh man, being a protocol droid would kick so much ass.

You'd probably get sodomized by all the cool kids with lightsabers, but still: how many MMO's have classes that are distinctively BRITISH?

Perhaps, but I take it these are the people on forums like this? You'll still have a very healthy dose of force-users from those who you don't see post, just as you had thousands upon thousands of Female Night Elf Huntards who didn't post on the WoW forums (and the ones who did almost universally lived up to their names).

I vaguely remember a poll a while ago on what people were rolling in TOR considering the (then) currently announced classes, and there was a rough 50/50 split between Bounty Hunter and Sith Warrior.

Can't for the life of me remember the Smuggler or Trooper stats. I can almost guarantee that of the currently announced classes, Trooper will have the lowest starting population though.

And with this announcement, over 50% of the characters being planned for this game shifted to Jedi.

Let's just pray that Bioware's gonna have some good balancing going on...

Interesting, but rather expected. I assume that Jedi Knight will be more of a hybrid... Because there certainly doesn't seem to be any room for a Jedi Consular and stuff. So maybe those will be talent paths, or something.

I bet the Sith are going to get some kind of a Sith Lord/Sith Deceiver (okay, I made that one up) class, since they've stated that Sith Warrior is into more flashy destructive stuff and the other Sith class could be more insidious.

We'll see.

I can't believe that I'm saying it, but I think I still prefer the Jedi side. They've gotta do something really good to make me want to play the Sith - not for ideological reasons, of course, otherwise I'd be Sith already, but because of their current class selection...

Out of all known classes, Smuggler and Trooper are the two that interest me the most. Now if they had a Force-based insidious evil guy or at least an assassin droid with a british accent on Sith side...

But I'll probably still stick to either Smuggler or Trooper. All the jedi stuff is pretty boring and overdone... Knocking someone down with a grenade, running up to them and scoring a kill with the butt of the rifle to the face, now that's awesome.

Also, I forget... Did they say something about being able to change your faction in this game? I could swear I heard that a while ago, but I'm probably wrong.

Really sounds like people will really be able to live the dream in this game. I can just imagine the first moments in the game after creating a new character:

LukkeSollo: sweet! i can defflect lazers
LayaKunowbee (shout): WTS [Rancor Hide Boot] x2 PST

On second thought, never mind.

Edit: also, I think droid should be a species/race option, rather than a class.

How are you going to have a Droid Sith Warrior/Jedi Knight? Bounty Hunter is feasible, we did see HK-47 make use of wrist mounted weapons (including a flamethrower) during KOTOR, Smuggler...I suppose it's possible. Getting a droid leg in the nads probably hurts more than a human's leg anyway. Trooper works, in so much as it's just a soldier with a gun.

Honestly? I don't think Droid would work as a racial pick.

This just in! Modern Warfare 2 will feature guns!

What?!!?!?!?! MADNESS!!!!!!

No but seriously since this game is story driven there is a good chance I will play through the story of each class at least once.

That was expectable. Still Sith seem more interesting to me, mostly because of all these Dark Forces sequels where you play as a Jedi, I guess I got bored of them. Unfortunately half of the Internet will play as Jedi("they are kewl like Anakin in Episode 2"), while the second half will play as Sith("they are sooo dark and angsty, just like myself"). Anyway I'll stick to the Bounty Hunter. I think they are the most suitable class for the setting, as I see the Troopers are either normal grunts, only hyper-uber for some reason, or they are proto-Republic Commandos without all the balls that game had. Smugglers are copy+paste of Rogues.

There should be a Rancor class, so I can walk through Coruscant and eat everyone in my path, while smashing cars and making loud ROARS. That would be the best MMORPG ever. Skill trees would be:
1)Eat
2)Sleep
3)ROAR

Something tells me we should expect an astromech droid as a healer/engineer class on the Republic side.

YAY!!!

I'm going to get this game. Now that I think of it, when I do, it will be the first MMO I've ever played.

Personally I am leaning towards rolling a Smuggler or Bounty Hunter as my first char, only because I can see a huge amount of people rolling Jedi (although with people having the same fear everyone may end up rolling Smuggler/Bounty Hunter, lol).

Can't wait to get my hands on this game. :D

The people that talk about the game aren't a significant section of the population. I preffer to let history speak for itself: Star Wars Galaxies, after they allowed players to start as Jedi... yeah, I rest my case. Also, how many people played KotOR as a ranged character?

Jedi will be overpopulated, especially around launch day. It's up to Bioware to make the other classes adequately badarse so there's at least some population balance. But no matter how awesome the Bounty Hunter and the Smuggler might get, a vast number of people will go for TEH LAZERSWORDZ!!!!11one1! ;)

I did after reading the Let's Play for KotOR2 of Jedi Jesus, the gunslinger.

It was exceedingly fun being a blaster wielding Jedi, I must say.

I think it's more likely to come down to how much they want to use force lightning on everything. If other people are anything like me, they'll be going dark side just to do that.

However the Obama administration will be ensuring all of them are unloaded in keeping with his plans to ban bullets, feeling it's important for the military to set an example. It's not like we want our soldiers to accidently injure anyone while fighting a war. :)

As a result, Modern Warfare 2 will be a true "realistic" next gen modern warfare sim as propaganda broadcasts blare telling you how great and inspirtational Obama is as the first black president, and how much he will be doing for human rights.

Where you previously would fire, the button will not cause your soldier to say "Shootity". In melee he can pull out his boffer knife and say "stabbity". Not to mention the much vaunted new vehicle mechanics where he can put his hands on the butt of another soldier and run along together with him singing a duet of "Tankity" for the ultimate next generation military vehicle experience.

The delay up until this point (in keeping with changes in military doctrine) has been to ask real Afghani and Iraqi insurgents how they plan to react to the new Obama engagement doctrine being put into place. Rumor has it they plan to keep using regular old bullets and bombs, so the multiplayer should be interesting to say the least.

Your political viewpoint has absolutely no place in this thread. Keep it on topic, or we'll do it for you.

On the subject:

It's like this, right now everything I've seen except for "poll of the moment" shows a massive interest in the "bad" side. Sith, Bounty Hunter, etc. It's very similar to what happened with say Destruction in WAR. There also seems to be a lot more attention being paid to the bad guys, the good guys, including the Jedi, seeming pretty bland in comparison.

In a practical sense, Sith, Bounty Hunters, etc... just seem cooler than their good counterparts. What's more looking at this from the perspective of PVP and such I honestly think characters like The Smuggler look far too situational to be effective.

What's more I personally think the whole idea of Bounty Hunters being "Evil" is a bad idea. I think if anything both Smugglers and Bounty Hunters should be defined as "Neutral". Though I guess that is hard for them to do.

As far as nobody wanting to play non-force users, well that depends on a number of factors. Among them whether or not they expand the arsenal of weapons in the game (which they typically do) to be cooler than just "muh, I have a Blaster". Generally speaking in Space Fantasy there are tons of things I would be using for combat against force users other than blasters. The movies don't go into this (for obvious reasons) but there is plenty of things that can make your gun toting character cool.

Plus if they start going into non-canon sources again, things like Teras Kasi, cybernetic enhancements, and similar things can easily put people on the level of Jedi.

Assuming they limit the Sith and Jedi options based on the respective orders and codes, there is a lot of appeal to being a very tough freebooter who has a wider range of options.

In Star Wars Galaxies I think the "Jedi Mania" once they made them availible was largely because by the time they were out there most of the player base had already played tons of differant kinds of characters, yet the Jedi requirements were so insane, that most people had never seen one.

SWG had the entire "one character per server" thing (at least when I played, which was before the engine change and Jedi became common). What this meant was that most people generally had a crafter or two running stores on a couple of servers, where they would just pop in to gather their resources and stock ther vendor (until they inevitably got bored with it). Then they'd have a server where they had their fighting character. Typically your player would then wind up with a service character on yet another server where they would run a dance-bot, or doctor. By the time Jedi came out everyone probably just picked another server where they would run a Jedi, and since they had done everything else... guess what you saw everyone playing? Proliferation of course meant that the service industry gravitated towards what people were playing, and this of course meant new players (I doubt there really were many) pretty much had to go Jedi because it was difficult to get stuff for anything else. Sort of like how playing a fighting character that wasn't the current "in thing" meant that it took 10x as much effort to find someone who was actually producing what you needed.

If all the options are there from the beginning, I think that you will see a varied player base if they do it right. BUT Force Users will always be far more common than they should be in the Star Wars universe, such are the realities of an RPG.

If anything I think Anakin Skywalker and the Star Wars prequels kind of ruined Jedi in the minds of many people. Especially those who really don't understand what was going on. Basically Star Wars works on a cycle where the Force dictates that there is an era of good followed by a period of balance, followed by an era of evil, which is in turn followed by balance, and then another era of good... ad infinium. This is why the Jedi misunderstood what was going on with Anakin and the prophecy that he was going to bring "Balance". When the good guys are already in control the only way to balance things is for them to go down. The Sith are only stronger because as the good guys say "the force is cloudy" and their powers are weakening, where the Sith are becoming stronger because The Force itself is conspiring to bring down the good guys. Star wars is really a pretty messed up storyline when you get down to it. The "New Republic" being conceptually doomed. The time of the empire was "balance" (only a few Jedi and Sith at all) but as some things have shown the New Republic that is formed is hardly a utopia and in the end will be akin to the Sith Empire and gets to sit around and rule the galaxy for the next several thousand years, until the good side goes on the ascension again, brings balanced chaos, and overthrows it. :)

George Lucas apparently helped write the KOTR games scripts, and was responsible for a bit of what was involved in KOTR II, where the central motivation for Kreia was to end the cycle entirely by killing the force and ALL force users to give people control of their destiny.

At any rate, this huge Sith Empire which was in control of a good portion of space which is just meeting The Republic is supposed to not only be going down, but going down hard. They are annhilated at this time period so badly that nobody even knows what a Sith is come the "main" Star Wars timeline.

-

At any rate, despite how this looks, I think they really need to pimp the good guys up, and nerf the bad guys somewhat already. Even if the classes look balanced, I think the sheer number of bad guys we're going to see needs to be compensated for.

I expect to see a LOT more people trying to be Bounty Hunters, or lightning-throwing badasses than to want to imitate Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan, or Anakin (whose portrayal has done irrevocable harm to the franchise... thanks George).

Oh and for the record, I wouldn't be surprised if the Sith wind up with a Hunter Killer droid character, and the Good guys wind up with a Gungan Hunter. :P

I haven't really read the Star Wars books but I thought I had heard/read some references to a droid Jedi or at least a droid with some Force powers/sensitivity... but I've been searching for it for probably half an hour or more now, and I guess I was wrong.

This is a nice addition to the current classes thus far. But I'm still holding out for the Sith Lord class. And as Amnestic mentioned, an Assassin Droid class would be quite....delicious. In an evil way!

I was going to be a Bounty Hunter until I found out I wouldn't be a Bounty Hunter, I'd be Boba Fett in mismatched armour and I wanted to be Greedo.

Then, I was going to be a Smuggler so I could facilitate my guild's trade and get the best weapons. Then I found out it's a Rogue.

Then, I thought Sith Warrior could be quite fun! The Marauders certainly are cool, what with Force Rage and all... But the fighting just looks like "press Force Leap. Wait for oponent to die." Jedi Knight looks different, but will probably end up going the same way.

Fuck it, I'm going to go for a Trooper. Might give him a Kortosisweave Vibroblade and fuck Sith up by charging them.

Good for you, but you're still a minority. And even you had to see someone else do it first ;) I mean no offence by that, just trying to point out that given a choice between wielding a Lightsaber and wielding anything else, most of the population will go for the oversized glowstick...

What I want to know is, if there are going to be any other races to choose from aside from human.

I do think he should have private messaged me though, and been a bit less threatening.

Quite simple my dear, instead of the tried and tested method of pick your race then pick your class, pick your class then pick your race. Allow Droid for Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, whatever, but keep them away for Force user's or Clone Trooper's.

Baron Khaine:
or Clone Trooper's.

There are no Clone Troopers. This takes place thousands of years before the Clone Wars.
