All of the below is from the official Star Wars Site:
Play Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ and be the hero of your own Star Wars saga in a story-driven massively-multiplayer online game from BioWare and LucasArts. Explore an age thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader when war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy.
Choose to be a Jedi, a Sith, or from a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, and make decisions which define your personal story and determine your path down the light or dark side of the Force. Along the way you will befriend courageous companions who will fight at your side or possibly betray you based on your actions. Together, you will battle enemies in dynamic Star Wars combat and team up with other players to overcome incredible challenges.

The release date of the game is in December 2011.
What do I think of the new game:
I think it looks rather interesting, and I really want to test it, too bad that I'm not 18. Oh well, I'll get it when it comes out. I would be a jedi, not a sith, and I would fight for what's good. What do you think of the game at the moment, and which side would you be on if you buy it?
