Whenever I think Star Wars bounty hunters, images of Boba Fett immediately float into view. His wicked Mandalorian threads, hardcore pursuit skills, careful disregard of life, and seasoned body made him one of the most fearsome bounty hunters in the galaxy during the time of the original trilogy. BioWare, apparently, won’t be trying to shake Fett’s image with their Bounty Hunter class in the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Yesterday, BioWare formally revealed the class addition on the game’s official Web site. Coupled with the announcement was a new page to explore, containing some general details and images related to the class. The vibe is Fett — the hard-boiled, tech happy, and morally ambiguous side of the man — and that’s definitely not a bad thing.
