Nothing like dangling some content to once again start up the fires of anticipation.

I'd better go get my TOR rabies shot..

Awesome article with actual game facts in abundance.

It tells us what armour and weapon slots we will have (14 total).

Items will have durability that obviously diminishes through use or death.

There is fall damage.

There are varied degrees of loot quality.

There are stats such as agility, endurance and cunning - stats which must vary according to class and skill paths and items etc.

Each class will have 2 skill paths.

And more, so much more.

Woah, a load of information here, I really, REALLY hope I can download TOR on more than one computer and use the same account.

We did open up and start to do some testing. We are doing small groups, we are looking to expand that in the near future, and those origin planets are really a focus.

So in the Interview: Story In-Depth With Daniel Erickson there is more great info.

When you think bounty hunter think Western.

When you think Imperial Agent think CIA/Bourne Identity.

When you think Smuggler think Action Comedy (Rush Hour?)

There will be romance arcs.

The worlds are massive and there is free roaming/exploration.

Along with the class stories there are LONG world stories (primarily multiplayer is the impression i got).

Other classes can join you in your class story quests but cannot ruin the story for you.

And then Alex Freed (who is the writer for the Imperial Agent) came on
board, started looking at it, and really helped develop what the Empire
was and really changed it. He came to James Ohlen and I, and said "no,
no. This guy has got to be 24, Bourne Identity."

OMG! [Hears Bourne soundtrack.]

Alicia De'Lories right there! =P

The escapist's Greg Tito also got some hands on time with the trooper.
You can see his thoughts here.

Looking forward to seeing the different skill trees for all classes.

Not so much interested in the DPS.. so looking forward to the secondary skill tree path for the trooper.

At least one of the GDC interviews confirmed there will be open world PvP... whatever that means.

You can see his thoughts here.

"" It seems that choosing to not accept a quest is
just as important as dialogue choices. "It's not just about taking a
meaningless quest, it's a quest that actually changes the story that
you're participating in, which can also change your progression." Neri
hinted that TOR might have some Fable-like changes as
well. "You might go down the dark side as a player, and perhaps that
affects the way you look from a physical perspective," he said. ""

Interesting, not sure if I'd like it or not, I mean, you choose your appearance for a reason...

@Beadle
I can see that happening a lot more to force users, like they showed in KotOR. The Dark side makes you all grey, and vein-y, and the light side doesn't really change much, just makes you shiny? Anyway, I don't think they'll overdo it or anything, and they might have a toggle button to turn off such effects, just like LotRO had a button for every single piece of armor, if you didn't want to show it.

But how will light and dark choices affect non-force users?

Seen the effect on the force users.. but how will troopers and the like change with their stories?

I'm guessing there will be some sort of toggle or something that will determine whether you will gain scars, burnt hands or face, implant, red eyes, pale skin or any of that stuff.

Or there could be an optional yet demanding side quest to change your appearance. Like the resource thing in ME2.
