Wot No Jawas? The Old Republic In-Game

A few moments ago, in a convention hall reasonably far away, Bioware unleashed a super-shiny new trailer packed with in-game footage of their upcoming Star Wars MMO: The Old Republic.

It looks improbably glossy and exciting. Can the game itself possibly live up to such visual promise? Well, depends to some extent whether your PC can run that much anti-aliasing.

There it is then. A whole lot going on in there, but the bits that most sang to me was the glimpse of Hoth (or somewhere suspiciously similar) and an HK-47esque chap. That murderbot is surely one of Bioware's finest moments.

Hopefully, hopefully, we'll get to experience SWTOR first-hand sometime soon. Get in touch eh, EA?
