This is a rather straight forward but also rather brilliant trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic. It’s a bit of a mass catch up that shows scenes and landscapes we’re all familiar with, introduces the Sith, the war and then characters will be familiar with.
Despite these introductions this The Old Republic trailer doesn’t explain what or who people are. Fans will recognise people – and enjoy the trailer all the more. Potential players less familiar with the movies or the in-between stories might not recognise the people – and that’ll not impact their enjoyment of the trailer at all. Clever.
Are EA sitting on a giant success here or do you think they’ll struggle given how tapped out the computer game market is and just how long in the tooth the Star Wars franchise is?
