The Star Wars-themed MMORPG is in the process of adding four new combat styles to the game – Mercenary, Powertech, Juggernaut, and Marauder – which will be available alongside the already playable Jedi Guardian, Sentinel, Sniper, Operative, Assassin, and Sorcerer . combat styles.
According to a blog post Released on the game’s Steam page, the developer behind Star Wars: The Old Republic wants to make its fighting styles “clear and easy to understand, using the Sith Warrior and Bounty Hunter classes as examples, while also ensuring Makes the class maintain its identity” of combat styles that require a lot of memorization and a deep understanding of their abilities to play.
