You can play as a mage, rogue, or warrior; and each one has 4 specialization classes that you can unlock through the story, or at a certain level gain "specialization," points that allow you to start up one of the special trees (i.e. blood mage, shapeshifter, templar, assassin, duelist, etc...).
Reading through the third interview makes my wallet cringe; lead dev said in about 2 years time they plan on having close to 100 packages available for DLC o_O, hoping 90/100 are free.
