Friday Update: New Agent Intel
This week's update brings us up to speed on the Imperial Agent, including a fairly lengthy gameplay video. Also revealed is the Agent's personal ship, the X-70B Phantom-Class Prototype. We first caught a glimpse of the sleek and stylish vessel during our dissection of the first space combat video back in August. Included in the reveal is a nice collection of interior screenshots and concept art, as well as a walkthrough video.
We also learn about the Agent's two Advanced Classes, the Sniper and the Operative. The Operative appears to be a stealth-centric close range support class, and the Sniper appears to be a long range heavy hitter. Finally we learn a little about the Imperial Agent's back story, including Kaliyo Djannis, the mysterious and intimidating Rattataki companion, and a little about how the isolated and secretive Chiss were brought under the Empire's influence.
The aurebesh translations from the various pages can be found after the jump, as well as a working dissection of the ship and gameplay videos, and the original forum post from Alyson Bridge.
The Imperial Agent class delivers an experience unlike any other in Star Wars: The Old Republic, and this week, were excited to share new details that highlight what makes the Agent so unique.
Learn about the Agents Advanced Classes and the combat tactics they rely on. Specialize as a Sniper and leverage distance and concealment to get an edge on your enemies, or master stealth, surprise, and combat medicine to become a versatile and deadly Operative.
