It may not have been the particular Star Wars trailer you were waiting for, but it’s well worth a watch in anycase, even if you’re not a gamer.
From BioWare comes Knights Of The Eternal Throne, the latest in The Old Republic series that takes place thousands of years before the events of the films. Almost like a mini movie in itself, it’s both a great advert for the games (which are brilliant, by the way) and for the wider Star Wars universe. It’s not strictly canon, but hell, it’s still worth your time.
Anyway, you can read the official synopsis and watch the first trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic – Knights Of The Eternal Throne below:
Knights of the Eternal Throne puts the player at the center of their own explosive battle to rule the galaxy. As the Outlander, a veteran of the Great Galactic War, players will have the power to make their mark based on their light and dark side choices. Stakes are high as the player faces the most powerful villains in the galaxy including Emperor Valkorion and Empress Vaylin, as you lead the fight to take control of the Eternal Throne!
Ruling the galaxy offers expanded power and influence through the new Galactic Command system. Alone or with friends, players can ignite light and dark side battles, face all-new erupting confrontations known as Uprisings, and unlock powerful rewards. In the latest expansion, players will be able to customize their combat encounters with three challenge levels, giving everyone the option to play their way.
BioWare also announced Pre-Order Rewards for Knights of the Eternal Throne. Players who are subscribed to Star Wars: The Old Republic by October 25 get the infamous mercenary bounty hunter, Shae Vizla, as their companion. Those subscribed as of November 27 can rise above their enemies in the new Rapid Recon Walker Mount – stay subscribed throughout the entire period to receive 3-days of early access to the expansion.
