Somebody explain to me this class system in multiplayer

I'm kind of comfused. By classes, do they mean the player picks a certain guy and has to hang on to the default weapon until he dies so he can then change to a different class?

They're suit slots, right now it's, you have one primary suit slot, and two secondary, the only one mentioned right now is robot legs give you faster running

In the Nintendo Power article, it refers to "character classes" in addition to the new weapons. So, no, it's not weapon classes.

So, is anyone seeing the possibility of a spiritual Battlefront successor? :)

@Prime: The article refers to the unlockable suit upgrades as still something else from the character classes.

I think the different weapons, the classes, and suit upgrades have an excellent potential for replay value.

All I know is that I can't stand being forced to hold one weapon at a time until I die. I like to kill somebody and then take there weapon >:)

Well we'll see how all of this turns out...

Think Battlefield: Bad Company 2. You had Assault, Engineer, Medic, and Recon Class. Each has 3 'special' slots (or perks) and one for weapon customization (this is class specific). Theres special perks specific for each class, and some specials that can be used in the other classes. For example, Spec 1 could be Carbofiber armor for more life, this can be ussd for all classes. Or you can get a spotting scope to point out enemy players easier. The Spotting Scope is however, Recon specific.

Using BBC2 as an example like this makes it easier to think of what HVS is up to.
