From our preview session with BioWare Austin at this year's E3, we have an extensive and in-depth preview of their upcoming Star Wars MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, showcasing the first actual gameplay demo with examples of unique faction classes, class abilities and an example of just how deep the story-shaping decision-making element of the game will actually be.

Great interview - was wondering about races. One of the most informative articles to come out of E3.

Just wondering: Did you see a selection of player races?

Sounds big, and more involving hopefully. Fully voiced characters make a big difference towards immersion.

Cool. Too bad didn't see anymore gameplay but looks awesome.

I'm so f***en excited for this.

I was in the same preview session as Steve and can say one thing with certainty, if the rest of the game and main narrative is as fleshed out as what we were shown, at the very least it will be KOTOR 3.

By that I mean: even if the MMO part of the experience fails to gain enough traction, when buying the box, we're still going to get one kickass story-driven, BioWare quality RPG to play through.

What I thought was interesting was they really only mentioned other RPG elements and made a massive point to focus on the stuff they're doing that's different.

But I'm really interested in the crafting and farming portion of the game - it'd be a safe bet you make money as the smuggler, err, smuggling weapons and the bounty hunter, err, bounty hunting...

This looks alright doesn't it. I would like to see however a more neutral or freelance part too it. As character classes like the smuggler and bounty hunter are pigeon holed to the republic and empire.

However there are supposed to be a far few factions withing each Allegiances, so you I hope to see grey knights, and right wing republicans.
