We've known from the start that BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO would allow players to be Jedi Knights - but the developer has only just confirmed the character class and published the first details on the official site.

There's not a lot substantive there, but you can watch videos of some of the Jedi's skills: deflecting blaster shots with his lightsaber, throwing it like a boomerang, and using the Force to knock enemies down and push them away.

The Jedi will face off against opposite number the Sith Warrior in the game. We also know about the Trooper and Han Solo-style Smuggler classes on the Republic side, and the Bounty Hunter fighting with the Sith. That leaves three classes yet to be revealed - one good and two bad.

We'll be playing The Old Republic at an EA press event later this week, so stay tuned for more details.
