BioWare and LucasArts current work, Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) is a multiplayer online role-playing game that takes place about 300 years after the previously released Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Regardless of the Treaty of Coruscant, which ensures the truce amid the two waring factions, tension continues to persist and threatens to break the peace.

The two conflicting allegiances in SWTOR, are the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Where specifically the Sith initially came from continues to be a riddle in SWTOR. It is nonetheless believed that the race began about three thousand years ago and that the race carries the blood of the Jedi. When the Dark Jedi arrived on Korriban, they began commanding the inhabitants. After years of in marriage between the Dark Jedi and the inhabitants of Korriban, came the 'Sith' race along with the wrath and hatred towards the Jedi Order.

Prior to SWTOR, the new Sith race are made up of Force-sensitive hybrids just like the Jedi. Their use of the Force is for annihilation and power as defiance to the Jedi's use of the Force for the good. As the Sith civilisation grows and reached the Republic's boundaries, came forth the Great Hyperspace War. Ever since, the 1000 years struggle between the two orders, the Emperor of the Sith Empire and the Jedi Order of the Galactic Republic continues.

Although, the Sith were crushed in a galaxy-wide war, the last Sith Emperor manged to flee and began the Empire anew with the help of his Dark Lords. The new civilization is built on the foundations of vengeance and contempt with the aim to one day crush the Republic and the Jedi Order as they did onto the Sith race. Over seven thousand years, the Empire grew extensively with a substantial and lethal Imperial army and fleets of ships. All this while, the Emperor prolongs his life by using dark rituals ready to see the day that the Jedi Order is totally decimated.

The new and stronger Sith Empire's combat-ready forces, as seen in SWTOR today, is not only made up of the Imperial Agents but with Bounty Hunters to take down key political players within the Republic. These are 2 of the 4 avatars that are available in SWTOR. The SWTOR Agent reflects the Smuggler. The SWTOR Bounty Hunters on the other hand are experts at pursuing down specific targets. This SWTOR class works under the radar and has been trained to seamlessly invade the Galactic Republic.

How the continuous battle amid the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic concludes has yet to be announced in See this video SWTOR The Old Republic. Whether the Republic will be successful in keeping the peace and shielding their people from harm, or that the Empire will triumph in destroying the Republic and begin commanding with fear remains a mystery.
