Jedi Knight Class Reveal

My they're early with the Friday update today. As rumored it seems that indeed today they officially reveal the Jedi Knight class. Here is the official news:
For thousands of years the Knights of the Jedi Order have been the guardians of peace and justice in The Old Republic. Through disciplined training and meditation, the Jedi Knights achieve perfect union of body and mind, allowing them to meet any situation with focused, fearless attention. Strengthened by the Force, they are able to turn this training into brilliant displays of lightsaber combat inspiring allies and disheartening those who would see the Republic fall.

Access the latest HoloNet entry now to see a full profile of these heroic Jedi Knights, including videos showing them in action! Also, be sure to visit the Media section to get downloadable screenshots, concept art, and wallpapers!
And indeed they have the Holonet page up as well. Here's an excerpt from the description:
Valiant, Determined, Guardian of Peace

A symbol of hope in dark times, the Jedi Knight stands for the legacy of the Jedi Order—more than twenty-thousand years of protecting the Republic and keeping the peace across the galaxy. Though Jedi Knights have served as generals, guerilla fighters, and warriors for generations, their legendary combat prowess faces its greatest test during this age.
And don't forget the media for the class; the screenshots and concept art you can get from the Holonet page too, but there's also two new wallpapers:


Oh, and the new class forum for Jedi Knights is now open as well.

Not entirely unexpected to see this class, even before the rumors started earlier this week. We always knew that Jedi was going to be a class and after the Sith Warrior it became quite obviously that the Jedi class would be Jedi Knight.

Only three classes left to be revealed. My speculation is that one will be some kind of Imperial Agent (by whatever name; the Imperial answer to the Smuggler), some kind of Senator (by whatever name; the Leia/Padmé class) and some kind of Imperial Officer/Governor class (by whatever name; the Grand Moff Tarkin class and answer to the Leia/Padmé class). I guess we'll see in time. I predict the next class reveal to be somewhere around Christmas.
