"Not all heroes carry Lightsabers. Some just have the will to fight," begins the description to BioWare's latest class announcement for its upcoming MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The Trooper--a member of the Republic's armed forces--typically moves in "specialized squads," according to BioWare. But for the sake of the MMO, it is of course "not uncommon, however, to see a Trooper engaging enemies on his or her own."

Troopers are protected by specialized armor, and make use of heavy blasters to take down foes--as can be seen in the video below.

BioWare's MMO is expected to hit the PC sometime down the road.
