Members of the official forums have done some digging and found several assets that confirm that the Jedi Knight will be one of the upcoming class announcements.

This isn't the only thing that has been noticed by people digging about, some people on their forums have done this and found several empty pages (i.e. if you go to the url all you get is their generic background, but not a page can not be found error) including ones labelled 'space combat', 'professions' and stuff like that. Most of the time when they're discovered they're removed fairly quickly, though.

Edit: Here's the thread. (http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=56275) The pages are all in the Holonet, and topics include those mentioned above plus 'space', 'guild', 'story', 'characters', 'equipment', 'enemies', 'combat' and 'pvp'.

I really like the armor. I wish the Jedi had worn such armor in the prequels.

I don't care for the short-sleeved robes but overall they look pretty cool I think.

BioWare doesn't seem to have done that great of a job hiding this stuff. A class forum icon was also found for what looks like an Imperial Agent type class. http://www.swtor.com/sites/all/themes/swtor/en/assets/forum_76.png

It's funny to me how sites continue to "leak" info. Sometimes, yes, it's accidental, but a release like this...it makes me wonder how accidental it is. Not that I'm complaining though. But how hard it is not to upload an offline version of your page? Especially in the middle of a well oiled PR campaign.

I like the look though.

As for the space page on the holonet...I'm definitely praying that one turns out as happily as I imagine. SW isn't SW without a decent space component in my mind. At least we already know there are missions that will take you out into space (ie the walkthrough).

Looks like BioWare has removed the flash animation, that link goes to a page not found error now.

Leaked? :whacked:

Anyway, I agree with Jeff on the short-sleeved robes part. But the rest of the armor looks pretty cool. One question, why are the lightsabers thicker than the average human arm?

I was right about what the class would be called? I also think I predicted this would be the next class announced.

Saw a Dutch game program last night...they were talking about a droid class too. :)

This could mean Bioware is far ahead of what they are showing right now though. We are given alpha screens and stuff, but I believe they are marketing this so clever that they're ahead.

^ if they do make a full class just for droids its a waste if they were gonna put droids in they'd have to be a race not a class even then they couldn't be jedi or sith.
