Combat Developer Diary Video

Combat Developer Diary Video | Star Wars: The Old Republic |

A new combat developer diary for Star Wars: The Old Republic is available exclusively over at The video clocks in at about six minutes in length, and is chock full of all the sorts of combat footage we've all been itching to see.

The developers even get into the Ranged vs. Melee debate, using and some PvP footage between a Bounty Hunter and Jedi to demonstrate how a ranged class would deal with a melee class trying to get in his face. The Bounty Hunter is able to essentially taser the Jedi in order to allow him time to re-establish distance and fire at the Jedi.

Outside of the super flashy Jedi and Sith acrobatics and lightning moves featured in the video, the Bounty Hunter really steals the show, as he appears to have access to a grappling hook that yanks players towards him, and even has the ability to propel himself towards the player using his jetpack and basically Shoryuken them when he gets there. That last bit is worth watching the video for alone, by hte way.

Check out the video here.
