the-smugglerWe know that Bioware is not that type of game developer to say no to the opportunity of bringing something new into play and it seems that’s exactly what they’re planning to do for Star Wars The Old Republic with the introduction of the Smuggler class who, in turn, will introduce romance in the virtual worlds of the MMORPG.

The official description of the character reads: “Of all the stories in our game, the Smuggler ones are specifically written with an emphasis on humor and romance. If you’re playing this class, you get to say the funniest things (usually at the least appropriate times), and are always on the lookout for people who find charming rogues irresistible. You’ll be flirting with or laughing at the most exciting personalities in the galaxy: crime lords, gamblers, Bounty Hunters, senators, nobles, spies, Jedi and even Sith.”

Of course, it is more than possible that flirting and laughing is the most the Smugglers will do in game (I mean… no other stuff in there) but it’s still a start. We can only imagine what modders will be able to do with this charming class after the game hits the web or what Bioware themselves can create if somehow a Red District is to appear suddenly in Star Wars The Old Republic.
