The Old Republic Roleplay |Site Info


In this week's Friday Update, BioWare has a special treat for everyone wanting to RP a loyal soldier in the Sith Empire. In the video, we're treated to the armor and ability progression of the Agent and it's two advanced classes: Operative and Sniper. The Imperial Agent is one of the two non-Sith Imperial classes in The Old Republic, and the only one without Mandalorian fanboys. It's good to see some love for them. Did I mention sexy Imperial uniforms?

Operative seems like a varied support class. In the video, besides the cover and shooting, you would expect we also see a medical droid reviving a fallen companion, some other grenades, and dirty tricks like knives, knives, and more knives! Backstabbing people has never been more stylish. If you're looking for a James Bond crossed with MacGyver and Jack the Ripper, this is the one for you. Keep reading to find out more and see the video!

Sniper on the other hand does just what it says on the tin -- staying out of trouble and pecking off enemies before they can get close. They also get an orbital strike and what looks like an AoE force field to protect friendlies from incoming fire. The girl in the video also takes out a Jedi in one hit; it's hard not to love that or hear the Unreal Tournament announcer yelling "Headshot!" as the poor warrior monk falls to the ground.

Agents rely on technology and cunning to keep up with their force sensitive rivals. We also get to see some pretty awesome armor that could easily be found on Imperial Troopers. If you're looking to play a loyal son or daughter of the Empire, it just got a lot harder to wait out the time we have left until launch...
