Was Boba Fett a Powertech or a Mercenary? BioWare has updated its Star Wars: The Old Republic page with everything you need to know about Bounty Hunters, the class Empire players will turn to once they're done waving lightsabers around.
Star Wars: The Old Republic will allow bounty hunter hopefuls to don the distinctive armor and utilize the high-tech weaponry that made Boba Fett what he was several thousand years in the future. Apparently not a lot has changed technologically between The Old Republic and trilogy time. They've still got jet packs. They're still freezing people with Carbonite. The only thing missing is teleporters.
Sorry, that's Star Trek.
The Old Republic will let you live out your own unique Bounty Hunter experience, as long as you don't mind flying the same ship as all of the other hunters (the Kuat Drive Yards D5-Mantis Patrol Craft) and sharing the same spunky Nar Shaddaan orphan computer hacking prodigy as your sidekick.
Other than that, and the fact that you'll be sharing a similar overall storyline, the experience will be completely your own.
