A new trailer for The Old Republic MMO has been released today, featuring a cinematic style with animation work by Blur Studios. From SWTOR.com:
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.
The trailer is a little over 6 minutes in length, and features many of the characters we saw in the first two cinematic trailers. Viewers may notice that the video includes the words “Intro Cinematic” in the top right corner. It is very possible that this is actually the beginning of The Old Republic game. Sources have told us that it was possible that Blur Studios would be providing in-game cinematic scenes, and this seems to further that theory.
You can view the trailer after the break.
