I suppose.  I'd rather see what the game actually plays like.

When it says Old Republic does it mean before Movie #4? Either way this looks awesome!

Posted by RVonE

Why did the soldiers give up their tactical high ground immediately after they started the ambush? 
Another observation: no Jedi or Sith has ever showed the kind of power that is demonstrated in this trailer or like starkiller in SWTFU. I know this kind of stuff is in the books and whatnot, but it's still stupid. 
That said, Bioware knows how to put together some outstanding CG cinematics--I still love the CG trailer thay did for ME2 leading up to its launch.

I wikied it, and apparently, the Old Republic takes place a good 4000 years BEFORE the Star Wars franchise begins.

@sora_thekey:  I'm pretty sure the old republic timeline is several thousand years before any of the movies.

@sora_thekey: 
 
Old Republic means older then Yoda, and that's pretty old.
Like waaaaaaaaaay back.
 
I loved this trailer! Altho the quality is a bit wonky here!
Nonetheless my inner fangirl is satisfied! Star Wars! \o/

When it says Old Republic, it means the general era of KOTOR - which is to say there are still a shit load of Sith and Jedi to play with. 
 
This particular MMO will take place 300 years ahead of Knights of the Old Republic, but some 3000 years before any of the original movies.

God, Clone Troopers are awesome.
 
Bioware knows how to make good trailers, that's for damn sure.

Looks amazing.

Awesome trailer! I want this game now!

Posted by Glak

Dude these trailers are sooo good
I want!

Posted by Levio

Hmm, which to side with, not an easy decision.

Great, great trailer.  Can someone please commission the studio who made this trailer to just make us a full length Star Wars movie?  We can even call it "Star Wars: The Old Republic, The Official Movie of The Game" and I'd pay money to see it. 
 
But yeah, the game won't measure up to this, not in the action department anyway.  It physically can't, just by the nature of being a Bioware RPG, plus being an MMO.  I'm sure it will be well written and an amazing experience, but it's not going to be what we're seeing here, sadly.

Man, awesome trailer.

Posted by Karkarov

Actually this game takes place 300 years after the events of KoToR 1 and 2 and around 3000 years before the movies.  If you think the powers were out of whack in this vid chew on this one, the sith in this vid lived through that and he is actually the same guy you see in the older (yet chronologically more recent) trailer talking about how the jedi were deceived.   Also the chick is supposedly the descendant of Bastila from the first KoToR.

Pretty cool trailer as far as trailers go

Posted by DystopiaX

If only there were a star wars game that looked and played like this...graphically it's not impossible, given that GT5 basically looks as good as this (and people had a hard time telling which was real and fake when given a set of photos of cars and their GT5 counterparts).

Whoa! What's Sarevok doing on Alderaan?!
 
Respect to BioWare for awesome CG trailers, but I hope the game is as good..

Alderron is BACK!

Badass trailer!

Now if this only look anything like the real game i would be excited.

I don't think they're  clone troopers, just regular troopers. 
Posted by RE_Player1

why couldn't the prequels be like this?

Posted by Ashcrack

Hey I know what would be a good idea, running at the dude with a lightsaber, I mean I have this little knife amirite

Posted by HCARyan

Trailers like this make me much less excited for the game.  The trailer looks amazing, I'm sure anyone would agree. The game will be nothing like it. I wonder if they regret their cartoony stylized artwork now.

Posted by Daniel

That looks pretty sick

duder!

@RVonE:  
I was thinking the same thing when they gave up their advantage. This trailer is so full of nonsense bits like that I couldn't help but laugh. Oh well.
Posted by EvolutionX0

Bioware sure knows how to make an epic short. Should be a film more than a game imo.

"The chick" is not Satele Shan. Especially, since at this point, she (Satele Shan) should only be a Padawan... and this Jedi seems far more advanced. This is just some awesome Jedi Consular doing her thang.
 
As for the order, you are correct.   
"Hope" --> "Deceived" ---> ~10-30 years in the future = MMO Setting!

Sith need some quality control two of them got knocked around by some guy who didn't even have a weapon.

Yes, they've said a bunch of times it takes place during the Sith Wars between Knights of the Old Republic and The Phantom Menace.
Posted by Spiritof

Here's an idea:
 
Why doesn't Bioware just make a series of CGI Old Republic episodes that look just like this. I would gladly watch them. Pay for them, even.

What?  This all takes place about 2700 years before any of the movies.  What's "The Phantom Meance" referncing?  That was an alias given to Darh Maul in Episode One.

@RVonE: 
The soldiers wipe out all the column below them, therefore have to charge forward and press their attack. 
Also, what power? The jedi pushes the sith across into the rock face and then slams him? Thats hardly powerful seeing most of the jedi's in all the films threw soldiers willy nilly. Plus when she pulls down a tree, shes just breaking away the stump, once again not a hard feat.. for a jedi.. And seeing you are talking about a series of books and films where people use a special power in their mind and sticks of light to decimate armed forces, I don't think you can complain about it being silly..
Otherwise, think the game looked great, and my penis cried a little when seeing this trailer.

If they put their entire budget of TOR into doing this, I reckon they'd make far more people happy

What column? They're standing on a raised part of a mountain. The soldiers start the ambush by firing a few shots from the high ground, then they just jump down and charge towards their enemies.
About the power stuff, I really don't agree when you say they throw around soldiers all willy nilly in the movies. Where do they do that? There is nothing like that charged force push in any of the movies.

holy shit that was one hell of a trailer.

" Someone, somewhere, is watching this trailer and crying tears of joy."
 
uhm, yes - that would be me.

Posted by TheChaos

That was really awesome, almost made me forget that the game will actually be nothing like that.

Posted by S0ndor

I admit, I almost cried tears of joy. Also almost cried tears of sorrow, knowing that the real Star Wars will never be this cool.

Posted by slyely

wow that was one hell of a trailer...wish the game would be like that

Posted by LordCraven

Hey look Clone troopers... 3000 years before the clone wars. yeah
Posted by DocGroove

Absolutely beautiful. Looking forward to this game, even though I know the trailer doesn't show the actual gameplay (or graphics).

Posted by Robin_Gr

I don't play MMOs and despite liking Star Wars, I probably won't play this. However, that 5 minutes was better than the entire new trilogy combined.

Posted by Veektarius

No reason to get angry about this.
