Star Wars: The old Republic – Species and Specializations










Aparently there have been a press event hosted in the UK over the last few days on Star Wars: The Old Republic ( Damn I would have liked to be invited). And today the embargo on the information reveals is lifted, as Sean Dahlberg notes:

Thegalacticstruggle.com talks about the possibility of playing other species than humans. They were alble to play as Rattataki. The species resembles humans very much as shown on the given screenshot. Some of you might already know this race from the Clone Wars series and Asajj Ventress.
