Star Wars: The Old Republic Description
In Star Wars: The Old Republic, the Galaxy is experiencing a brief peace between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Players in Star Wars: The Old Republic choose a race and a class, some of which are only accessible for either the Galactic Republic or the Sith Empire. Player actions determine their alignment on the Light and Dark side division.
Both sides can choose either Human, Cyborg, Twi'lek or Zabrak races. Those siding with the Republic can choose the Miraluka and Mirialan races, while the Empire faction has access to the Chiss, Rattataki, and Sith Pureblood. However, there is an option to purchase or unlock their access to mix and match.
After choosing a race, players select one of the 8 base classes: Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight, Smuggler, and Trooper for the Republic and Bounty Hunter, Imperial Agent, Sith Inquisitor, and Sith Warrior for the Empire. Players can also expand to advanced classes (2 for each base class). Each class also gets their own type of starship which serves as their housing.
As players in Star Wars: The Old Republic progress in their storylines, they can recruit companions. Companions serve as assistants with passive or active tasks, including crafting, take on missions, or gather resources. Aside from their starships, players can also acquire Galactic Strongholds for expanded housing options and flagships for guilds.
Players in Star Wars: The Old Republic can explore the different worlds and accomplish quests solo, or they can join parties and guilds. PVP options include 12v12 space combat between ships. More content is added with each expansion, including raising the level cap to 80 as of Legacy of the Sith in July 2021.
