thesmugglerBioWare has decided to offer some details on a new class in the upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO – the Smuggler. According to a posting on the game’s official website, we learn that Smugglers will be joining the Troopers in the battle against the Sith Empire and yes, things are starting to get a shape, finally!

The Smuggler class will be a light armor one which, like all the other classes in the game, will have their own story arc in SWTOR. The MMORPG’s official website explains: “Faced with choosing an allegiance in these uncertain times, Smugglers have been forced to consider the implications of trying to operate under the tight controls imposed by the Sith Empire. Though never the most patriotic members of Republic society, many Smugglers have decided that siding with the Republic is siding with freedom, and of course, freedom is everything.”

Although the details on this class were not complete (probably), we still saw some combat tactics in which the Smugglers were shown targeting multiple enemies, causing distractions and generally looking lively and agile.
