A cinematic trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic has been released, which you can now download right here from AusGamers. It is, by all reports, definitely worth a look:
In Star Wars: The Old Republic, players will explore an age thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader when war between the Old Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy. Players can choose to play as Jedi, Sith, or a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, defining their personal story and determining their path down the light or dark side of the Force. Along the way, players will befriend courageous companions who will fight at their side or possibly betray them, based on the playersí actions. Players can also choose to team up with friends to battle enemies and overcome incredible challenges using dynamic Star Wars combat.

Wow Thermite, way to be in the know there.

Since it is an MMO, it would be shameful to my family if I was 'in the know' about something like that.
When they make a proper game out of Star Wars, like Jedi Knight II, let me know.
Posted 01:40pm 02/6/09
finally an MMO i might be keen to try.
Posted 02:54pm 02/6/09
thermite, did you play force unleashed?
Posted 02:56pm 02/6/09
Nope, heard it was s*** on this very forum so I didn't pursue it.
Posted 04:37pm 02/6/09

Posted 04:47pm 02/6/09
the trailer looks cool but i'm still not down with pay per play mmos :( i just don't play often enough to justify having mmo accounts. if only it was co-op vs the computer on lan... that's what i want! :/
Posted 06:35pm 02/6/09
Yeah i dont get the force unleashed hate. Granted i rented the game but still, i thought it was pretty damn fun.

Really looking forward to this game.
Posted 07:10pm 02/6/09
nah, saw trailers for force unleashed, looked amazing. bought GratuitouslyProvocative a wii for xmas, got unleashed on boxing day. not impressed.
pro: picking up people and Throwing them at each other/off buildings. gets old quickly.
con: atrocious camera control, repetitive action, irritating bosses, poor ambiance.

dled trailer, but my computer hates HD :'(
Posted 07:48pm 02/6/09

Posted 07:54pm 02/6/09

Posted 08:32pm 02/6/09
Wii, theres ya problem!
Why? It was just as repetitive on the other formats.
Posted 08:57pm 02/6/09
Was the sound out of sync for anyone else?
Posted 09:03pm 02/6/09
Stog from ETQW meets star wars !?

Nice cinematic, but I'd like to see game play.

Thw cinematic was about 10 seconds out of sync on Ausgamers but ran fine off Gamearena. Not sure if there is a prob or not.
Posted 09:09pm 02/6/09
theres a little bit of gameplay in the developer diaries.
Posted 11:34pm 02/6/09
Youtube link for anyone with sound sync probs:

Posted 11:41pm 02/6/09
awesome trailer, the actual game looks like arse though
Posted 12:10am 03/6/09
I will stop WoW for this.

The gameplay looks better and I'm much more interested in the story regardless, as many fans would be.
Posted 05:24am 03/6/09
I thought it was the usual starwars shenanigans, nothing really special. Though better than the s***** teasers these days.
Posted 12:32am 05/6/09
I'm pumped! If only the game looked like that... with out setting my PC on fire.
