Despite E3 having only happened last month, it's appearing more and more that gaming companies are now saving a little bit of goodness for the San Diego Comic-Con.  BioWare was one of the companies to save back a couple of goodies, all of them specifically related to their upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic game.

First up you have the trailer above that shows off the eight different classes of characters, four each to the light and dark side of the Force.  They include:


  • The Trooper
  • The Smuggler
  • The Jedi Knight
  • The Jedi Consular


  • The Bounty Hunter
  • The Sith Warrior
  • The Imperial Agent
  • The Sith Inquisitor

BioWare and EA also took advantage of the Con to announce special editions of the game that has still yet to receive a release date.  You'll of course be able to pick up a standard version of the highly anticipated role-playing game, but if you've got the extra money, and a hankering for a whole lot of goodies, the two companies have you covered there as well.
