New The Old Republic shots

BioWare's Star Wars MMO looking improved...

A batch of new The Old Republic shots have appeared on the internet, and it's looking much improved since the debut shots from last month.

The BioWare MMO takes place a few hundred years after the Knights of the Old Republic single-player games, where the Old Republic and Sith Empire are battling in a massive civil war. Basically it's the Darth Vader Star Wars films, but everyone's got a lightsaber.

Players can choose to play as Jedi, Sith, or a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, defining their personal story and determining their path down the light or dark side of the Force.

BioWare isn't usually rubbish, so we've got high expectations for this. By that, we mean it's probably going to destroy our social lives.

Thanks, Massively.
