For the first time ever, BioWare is letting people play Star Wars: The Old Republic. Andrew Pfister was one of the lucky writers out at GamesCom 2009, where BioWare walked away from the keyboard and mouse and let him try out Star Wars: The Old Republic for himself. Andrew got a chance to play as a level 8 Sith Warrior, one of the newly revealed classes.
"My MMO background: on-again, off-again, really off-again, on-again and finally off-again World of WarCraft player. Never a raider or serious PvP player, but enjoyed questing solo and picking up bits of lore here and there. Going hands-on with Star Wars: The Old Republic was one of my most-anticipated appointments at GamesCom, and I am pleased to report that I was not let down. "
