The highly anticipated MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will be releasing December 20, 2011 in North America, and December 22, 2011 in European territories.

With the announcement of Star Wars: The Old Republic launch date, comes two brand new trailers highlighting the combat in The Old Republic, along with the revamped companion system.

Companion Characters Companions fight alongside players in battle against AI and other players in Open World PvP, aid in crafting and non-combat missions through Crew Skills, and provide commentary on environments and engage in conversations.

As you advance your story in Star Wars: The Old Republic, you build relationships with your companion characters based on the decisions you make throughout the game. How you treat each companion and how you act when they are in your presence determines how your relationship with them evolves.

Changes to the Companion System were recently revealed, and include more customizations and companion specific class/roles. Check out the full details behind the companion changes.

In addition, they also focus on the combat strategy of each class. Of course, taking place in the Star Wars universe, we should expect a ton of cool gizmos and gadgets.
