Star Wars: The Old Republic E3 Trailer Shows Gameplay Mechanics

When you think back on the Star Wars: The Old Republic trailers released so far, the ones most likely to stand out in your mind are those pretty CG trailers. The title was announced way back in 2008, but it feels like we’ve been seeing more cinematics than we have gameplay. Fortunately, that has now changed. The following E3 trailer doesn’t simply show us gameplay – it assaults us with it.

Most of the footage is quick cuts of the game’s various gameplay mechanics, but there’s still quite a lot to take in. We have brief looks at the game’s narrative, combat, space battles (and personal ships!), PvP and, of course, raids.

EA’s E3 press conference is scheduled to kick off tomorrow evening, so it’s possible we’ll have even more information to share after the press conference wraps up. Until then, go ahead and check out the E3 trailer for yourself below.
