No Star Wars gaming fan can forget the awesomeness of the first CGI trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic. It was pure Star Wars wish-fulfilment, with an army of Sith Lords taking on an army of Jedi – and a quality of animation and motion-capture that stands up to any of the movies.
Sadly the action in the game itself wouldn’t stack up to that epic reveal trailer, but believe it or not The Old Republic is still going, and BioWare has just announced the seventh expansion for the MMO – simply titled ‘Onslaught’, with a release date of this September.
Onslaught will see the reignition of the war between the Republic and the Sith Empire, with players returning to Han Solo’s home planet of Corellia, as well as several other new planets to explore. Perhaps most excitingly for fans, going by the official screenshots for the expansion, it will apparently see the return of the star of The Old Republic’s first trailer – the villainous and very Vader-like Sith Lord Darth Malgus.
