Brand New Star Wars: The Old Republic Trailer! – “Return”

This just went live on the SWTOR main site. Here’s the official blurb:

Protected by the legendary Jedi Order, the Galactic Republic stood as a bastion of peace in the galaxy for a thousand generations. Several centuries ago, the greatest threat the galaxy has ever known emerged in the form of the dark Sith Empire. After a volatile war, the Republic emerged victorious and the Sith were assumed to be extinct. Nonetheless, the Jedi have maintained a constant vigil over the ancient Sith homeworld, to protect the galaxy from the darkness that still resides in the planet’s tombs.

Interest in Bioware’s Star Wars MMO continues to go up and down like a pogo stick, but the one thing everyone can agree on is that the trailers are freaking amazing. I wanna play a Han Solo ripoff, cowboy, smuggler in the worst way!

  1. OK – let’s be honest. That was epic, action packed, and pretty awesome on many levels. I won’t dwell on the striking similarities to the escape from the death star (wise jedi sacrificing himself to fight a badass jedi, the wise cracking smuggler ordering the escapees into gun turrets to fight off enemy fighters) from New Hope, the chase through the asteriod field (Empire) and the terrible dialogue (every Star Wars movie) – it still gave me a tingle of excitement!
