Apparently PC Gamer UK have a list of playable races per classes in their latest publication. A nice official forum dwellers gave us the list:

  • Human: Trooper, Knight, Consular, Smuggler, Agent, Inquisitor, Warrior, Bounty Hunter.
  • Cyborg: Trooper, Smuggler, Agent, Warrior, Bounty Hunter
  • Rattataki: Agent, Inquisitor, Bounty Hunter
  • Chiss: Agent, Bounty Hunter
  • Mirialan: Trooper, Knight, Consular, Smuggler.
  • Twi'lek: Knight, Consular, Smuggler, Inquisitor.
  • Zabrak: Trooper, Knight, Consular, Smuggler, Agent, Inquisitor, Warrior, Bounty Hunter.
  • Pureblood: Warrior, Inquisitor
  • Miraluka: Knight, Consular.


Small scan of the list above (I found it on the official forum)

Subject to change like everything else...

Cyborg is neat. Guess that is droid?

Was hoping for a couple more. I'm suspecting a massive imbalance in species, but I think they're all cool.

Cyborg is pretty much human + implants from what I have seen.

I'm surprised they put the Sith Pureblood for Inquisitor considering the class story. Also, the Trooper and Sith Warrior are missing a species choices (everybody get 5, they have 4).


As for imbalance:

From that various polls I have seen on the official forum. Most players will be humans or very human-like in the case of the Jedi (most favor Mirakula with human close behind) for the Republis. I haven't found anything for the Empire, but I suspect Human will still be really popular.

I like the appearance of the Chiss, but the available lore lead to me being inspired to write a backstory that demands my character be human, or at least born and raised a loyal son of the Empire.

Cyborg is an interesting option, actually. I'm very curious to some some pictures.

And I too was surprised that the Pureblood can be an Inquisitor, for the same reason.

Pureblood Inquisitors! BioWare did something right with species, at last.

*his avatar glares at the list*

Still waiting though >:V

Cyborg just doesn't do it for me as a starter race. I'd rather become a cyborg (like Vadar) than start out as one.

I really don't see pureblood as a problem with Inquisitor story. With the purebloods the force sensitives are the elite. The families of non-force sensitives are slaves. Maybe you are the first pureblood in your family to be force sensitive. Maybe you are the love child of a powerful but ignominious Sith lord and an unsanctioned match. Maybe you or one of your parentage did something so awful you were relegated to slaves. Playing against type has always made for more satisfying characters to me.

My guess is that an enthusiastic member of the press wrote down everything he saw in the character creation screen which, as we’ve stated often, is nowhere near final. Occasionally we’ll have species in odd classes or in all classes because of a bug or testing.

Hope that helps!
