The Old Republic Trailer: Deceived

This is just amazing. It had me smiling and giggling like an 8 year old on Christmas morning. This trailer is by far the best video game trailer I have seen in a long time. Excellent lightsaber battles with large groups of Jedi and Sith. You can't get any better. Even some Matrix action in there to make it that much more awestriking. "You have been deceived". You gotta love that stuff. I'm going to watch it again before bed.

Synopsis from trailer website (I can't summarize it any better!):
The Sacking of Coruscant. It was the crowning achievement of the Sith Empire’s ambitious military strategy and the moment that changed the history of the Old Republic forever. You may have read about it before, but our first cinematic trailer captures this event with breathtaking action and beautiful detail.

Republic leaders have traveled to Alderaan to engage in promised peace talks with the Sith Empire. The most powerful Jedi have accompanied them to safeguard against an Imperial deception. The Empire’s real motive, however, was simply to lure the Republic’s strongest defenders away from Coruscant and set the stage for an audacious attack. Under the command of Lord Angral, the Sith fleet approaches the Republic’s capital planet for the first time in centuries. In advance of the fleet, the strongest Sith Warriors have flown a stolen Republic ship into Coruscant’s orbit. Their mission is critical – to destroy the planet’s defense grid mainframe hidden in the heart of the Jedi Temple.

  1. On my computer I have to let it load for a while before I can see it. But when I got it loaded you're right. Pretty darn cool. I wouldn't mind seeing this "movie" even.
