Today marks the beginning of a new video series, “Choose Your Side.” The premiere video goes in-depth into the Jedi Knight and Bounty Hunter classes, focusing on their best tactics to use against one another. Not only that, but the video is also a good introduction to both characters in both story and combat functions. We also get a lot of new gameplay footage for each class, taken from scenes throughout the game. To see it for yourself, watch the video here.

Today is a good day for those who have a guild ready to go pre-launch. The Guild Alignment phase has begun, which means guilds can choose who their allies and adversaries are.

To those of us who followed the Gamescom and PAX news at home, the two events may seem like one huge event. To the lucky people who got to go to either one, however, the two shows have produced very different memories. Today, we get a taste of what it was like to check out The Old Republic at GamesCom, full of cosplayers, T-shirt throwing, and German fans.

It seems a bit strange that we didn’t also get the PAX highlights video, but perhaps we’ll have that soon. Either way, while we didn’t get a release date at either event, we get one step closer to playing SWTOR every day.
