The newest edition of PC Gamer magazine has pics of all the spaceships as well as a great article on the space component of KOTOR.

They have pics of the ships they THINK the ships in SWTOR will be based off of.

If you watched the space combat preview trailer you'll notice that the ships they show in that video match up with the outlines of the ships in the above pic. So if you are wondering what the other ships will look like just check out that trailer.

Why is this even news? It's the same info here
http://www.massively.com/2010/06/15/bioware-discuss-swtor-player-ships-group-gameplay-and-pvp-at-e3/

All they did was move the already exsisting information and media about the two ships we already knew exsisted.

So- can you turn around while flying in space?

If it maintains on the on rails shooter aspect. Then that would be a no as far as turning around goes.

You should always be moving forward in the battle and if you miss or fail at a key point then it will be the end of the mission.

I imagine its going to play out ALOT like the ship combat in the new Clone Wars game by SOE. Both of them look to be about the same as far as what we have seen of them both.

I guess they didn't think a player would want to do that.

This SW:ToR is really becoming a farce.
And as usual the media is gobling it up.

We really don't know what we can or cannot do yet in ToR. This is just a news snippet just like the rest. The fans and the media then blow everything out of proportion, then things expand to adding things onto the news release that really isn't true.

My advice is to take everything you read with a grain of salt.

Oh and don't read the main forums because you will be overwhelmed because it's looking like the WoW forums.

I think the "on rails" method will work better, it will allow them to direct you to the points you NEED to go to, make development a lot easier, allow them to focus on making the game itself good rather than just a certain mechanic, and it will help tell a story.

You can only move up/down/left/right... it is 1980's gameplay, like Galaga, but prettier.

Alternatively, just play the Clone Wars Adventures' minigame called Starfighter, and it's pretty much that but without barrel rolls.

If fan speculation is right, the ships matching those blanked-out silhouettes are for Bounty Hunter(top left), Trooper(top right), Agent(bottom left), and Smuggler(bottom middle).

Couldn't care less. I want KOTOR, not Starfox with lightsabres.

The fan consensus regarding which spaceship is whose is the same as what Darth Hater mentioned here:

Looks like empire stuff is up top and republic ships are along the bottom row.

What great stuff did they get? The Republic has cool stuff too. I like how the Defender looks. It looks a bit lopsided with the heavy front end, but I like how it looks, with the cozy interiors.

Those ships don't look very big. Can we really fit the player character and the companions into it? Speaking of which, do these ships have npc crew members?
