Before the announcement of the game’s release date a few weeks ago, it seemed like the Star Wars universe might have been taking a vacation. Fans can rest easier now knowing that The Old Republic will release this year, and they can also catch a new glimpse of it in the latest trailer entitled “Signs of War.”
The Old Republic opens around the signing of a peace treaty between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire that turns out to be an ambush by the later party. The Republic was then forced to sign a hamstrung agreement that shows no signs of holding up. The trailer, released at the New York Comic-Con shows how conflict is on the rise in every corner of the galaxy and an all-out war appears inevitable.
Star Wars: The Old Republic arrives on December 20th in North America and December 22 across the pond. Watch for yourself to see why it’s one of the most anticipated days of the year for MMO fans.
