Hot on the hills of confirming the Jedi Knight class for new Star Wars MMO The Old Republic, LucasArts has announced the Imperial Agent as the latest addition to the line up.
Where as most of the other characters are based on existing Star Wars stawarts such as Han Solo (Smuggler) and Boba Fett (Bounty Hunter), the Imperial Agent is not immediately linked to an existing fan favourite.
“He uses subterfuge in order to infiltrate and assassinate enemies of the Empire”
We asked producer Blaine Christine to explain exactly what players can expect from an Imperial Agent: “He works behind the scenes doing the real dirty work of the Empirs. He specialises in high tech gear and always has the right gear at the right time. He uses subterfuge in order to infiltrate and assassinate enemies of the Empire with deadly efficiency. Players who play as Imperial Agents will see the underbelly of the Empire in a way never before seen.”
That currently brings the character classes announced to six but we’ve been assured that more will be revealed very soon.
