Star Wars: The Old Republic Launches

The official website for Star Wars: The Old Republic announces the launch of BioWare's Star Wars MMORPG is underway as planned. The site also offers a launch documentary called Your Saga Begins to mark the occasion. Here's word from the announcement:

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a story-driven, massively multiplayer online (MMO) game from BioWare and LucasArts, breaking new ground in online gaming by delivering high quality, fully voiced storylines with personal choice and consequences. Set thousands of years before the classic Star Wars movies, players will be immersed as they team up with friends online to fight in heroic battles reminiscent of the films, exploring a galaxy of vibrant planets and experiencing visceral Star Wars combat. Players will be asked to join forces with either the Galactic Republic or Sith Empire and choose one of eight iconic Star Wars characters, including the Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, Smuggler, Trooper, Sith Warrior, Sith Inquisitor, Bounty Hunter and Imperial Agent. Set against a sweeping musical score, Star Wars: The Old Republic will be the most emotionally engaging online gaming experience ever.

I really want to check this out. I've been watching 2 guys play it at work. (We have some down time right now)
That being said: classes start Jan 9th, I really don't think I should pick this up for a while.

It looks like a lot of fun and the companions look really interesting with the ability to send them out to do objectives for you.
Having been a longtime wow player I'm really interested since Cataclysm was annoying. The holochrons in the worlds are interesting and I guess help people to explore more.
They've definitely done stuff that wow hasn't. (And other older MMOs too, but I haven't played some of the more recent ones like Rift)
