Star Wars: The Old Republic – E3 CG Trailer

We’ve brought you the E3 trailer that featured a ton of gameplay elements, well now it’s time for us to show you what BioWare and LucasArts think you should be dreaming about when playing their new MMO.

The trailer below, doesn’t actually have any gameplay shown…which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I feel like the Star Wars fans are being sold a misrepresentation of what this game will actually be capable of…much like how the World of Warcraft fans are with each new iteration of that series. You’re hyped with a huge amount of CG and given new fetchquests with different maps and hats.

Enough negative, because haters are gonna hate regardless. The positive elements for this trailer would have to be all of the crazy action that is shown in this relatively short video. You’ve got star destroyers dropping from hyperspace, very pissed off Sith with old ass combat Droids, Bounty Hunters setting shit on fire, and republic troopers along with Jedi all duking it out. It’s a blast to watch.

The most powerful bit of the trailer would have to be the playing of “Duel of the Fates” near the end of the video. I won’t lie, that’s a pretty powerful song…even for jaded fans like me.
