A public test server is currently testing updated combat styles that will be included in the “Legacy of the Sith” expansion of “Star Wars: The Old Republic.”

According to an announcement posted on Steam, “Players can now test and give initial feedback on the updated Mercenary, Powertech, Juggernaut, and Marauder Combat Styles on our Public Test Server (PTS).”

The announcement also notes that current combat styles, including Jedi Guardian, Sentinel, Sniper, Operative, Assassin, and Sorcerer, are still available in the PTS.

“In the Sith Warrior and Bounty Hunter’s current state, there is quite a bit to learn and memorize–you need to understand active abilities, passive modifiers, selectable utilities, and how they all work together,” the announcement reads. 

“Our goal is to make these relationships clearer and easier to understand, while also ensuring that the class retains its identity,” the announcement adds. 

According to a report by PC Gamer, these updated combat styles will allow players to choose the skills and abilities of the game’s classes. 

Since this is the first time that players will have a good look at the revamped combat styles, what will be available to play and customize will be limited. You can read about how to access the PTS here.

Future updates will be made available for testing on the PTS in the coming weeks.
