Star Wars: The Old Republic devs have announced four playable species for the game. Non-human species for players to choose from include: Red-skinned Sith Purebloods, near-human Miraluka, Mirialans, and Zabraks. Each of these races will excel at a given class: Sith Purebloods as Sith Warriors; Miralukas as Jedi Knights; Mirialans as Jedi Consulars; and Zabraks as Sith Inquisitors.
So far we’ve only dropped hints about the range of playable species in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. You may have heard about the Rattataki Bounty Hunter, Chiss Imperial Agent, or the Twi’lek Smuggler, but we can tell you now that all classes will include optional non-human species.
Among the most exciting character types you’ll be able to choose from is the Sith Pureblood. For the first time ever in a video game, Players can choose to be a member of the original Sith Race, the red-skinned descendants of such notorious Sith Lords as Naga Sadow and Marka Ragnos. The rage of these fallen ancestors of the Sith Pureblood lives on in the Sith Warriors who dominate the battlefield with their intimidating presence and aggressive tactics.
