Scattered thoughts:

(1) Four new races? Cool, since we only had three before today.
(2) Less Jedi/Sith, more regular heroes and anti-heroes.
(3) Hawt.
(4) Mirialan? /me scurries off to read.

Neat info. Would like to see more gameplay videos though. How hard is it for Bioware to put out a 2 min gameplay vid every week or so?

They sort of leaked the Miraluka pics during SWTOR panel a Comic-Con this year. Im super excited to see where else they take us.

Love finally hearing about races but nothing matters until the Mon Calamari announcement. I want my Mon Calamari bounty hunter.

More races and more variation is always a good thing, I figure. Even if they only have the four classes, adding in differing races with varied bonuses will make things a lot more interesting.

This game might be the first 'per month' one I fork out for.

I sincerely hope that most republic classes will have very few race restrictions, as they are a tolerant society. I only expect to see humans and near-human species as playable Sith species, except for bounty hunter, which again should have very lax racial restrictions. Being able to be play as any number of alien races is part of the fun of a Star Wars MMO.

Looks like it is Human for all classes, plus two unique races per class.

I sure hope not; that would suck for a Star Wars MMO

as it stands right now it seems pretty crappy if they only have these 2 races per class...a human/humanoid alien. I'm all for race/class restrictions if they make sense for the story but I hope the number of playable races is a lot more then just 2 per class.

This is purely speculation, but I think there will be another species added to each class.. I haven't seen Kel Dor nor Togruta, yet. And those two species have been in a couple of trailers.

You cannot have wookiees unless you spell the species' name correctly :-P

I'm all for new races, but to be completely honest, most of them look retarded in this game. They just look like humans with a dorky colour swap that looks like a kid drew on it with crayons.

@Tempes Magus

Yes they are. A blind fold and a pair of horns aren't exactly the hardest thing to graft onto a human model.

Agreed with KJ: these races are some of the sorriest I've seen yet in an MMO. throwing paint onto a human is pretty dang uninspired. They're working with a gold mine of potential races in this universe and all they're harversting are the lumps of coal near the entrance.

Raze,
this is so true and so sad. I mean, it's Star Wars for God's sake and all we get are the few species so "exotic" that they could come straight out of a Star Trek episode.

@Tempes Magus.

We're talking about Star Wars here.

Look at this page here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Species

And tell me it's not just a little silly they're cherry picking all the (sapient) species throughout this series that could pass as human if they had a little plastic surgery here and there.

Unless you can give me hard evidence that most people just want to play as a human than your point is invalid.

As is the rest of your post, which is random, nonsensical and puts a lot of words I never said or even insinuated into my mouth. Blackmail? What the hell is that about?

What else did you expect? It's based on a sci-fi movie franchise from the 80s.

When did the Mirialan change color from the green of SWTOR to the yellow/orange of I II III and the Clone Wars? What caused this?
