Bioware shows off The Old Republic groupings in latest footage

TOR MP

Despite Bioware’s desire to stipulate that The Old Republic will have a strong singleplayer aspect to it with its storytelling, it is an MMORPG – so of course, along the way you’ll be grouping up with other people to take on ‘Flashpoints’, TOR’s equivalent to an instanced dungeon. In gameplay footage from E3, released today, the four classes of the Republic – the DPS-dealing Jedi Knight, the support healing Jedi Consular, the tanking Trooper and the jack of all trades Smuggler – work together to repel a Sith boarding party.
