BioWare announced the Trooper as a playable class in the upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO due out whenever the famed studio damn well pleases.
The official character description from BioWare states:
“The Trooper is an elite combat specialist in the Republic military armed with heavy blaster rifles and nearly impenetrable armor designed by the military’s top engineers.”
These soldiers carry a new generation of heavy blaster weaponry and smoke enemies in close-combat fire-fights.‚ Troopers are most effective in grouped engagements but that is not to say Mr. or Mrs. Trooper can’t handle him or herself without backup.
