It ain’t canon and it’s not an upcoming Star Wars movie, but the new trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s upcoming expansion “Knights of the Eternal Throne” is stunning nonetheless. The sixth expansion pack since the BioWare/EA video game debuted in late 2011 will be available for download starting December 2nd. This particular expansion sees the player’s veteran Outlander facing off against such powerful entities as Emperor Valkorion and Empress Vaylin, which get stellar turns in a newly released trailer for the MMORPG’s add-on.
For the uninitiated, Star Wars: The Old Republic is an award-winning BioWare Online RPG set thousands of years before the classic Star Wars movies. In it, players team up with friends online to fight in heroic battles between the Republic and Empire, exploring a galaxy of vibrant planets and experiencing visceral Star Wars combat. And while this new trailer looks and feels like the start of what could be an amazing feature film franchise, it’s squarely in the Star Wars Legends camp, so don’t expect any canon connections any time soon.
Take a look at the beautiful and heart-breaking expansion trailer 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.
