E3 2010: EA, Bioware Unveil New Star Wars: The Old Republic Trailer

As much as I hate trailers of games that are all CG, this one is pretty cool, and I’m a huge Bioware and MMO fan. Combine that developer and genre with the Star Wars universe and you will likely have something pretty special. The focus of this trailer, and the EA press event showing, was strongly on Player Versus Player activities. In addition to that, we learned today that every player will have their own ship that can in some ways reflect your own personal style (perhaps like player housing in other titles?).

The PVP combat previously mentioned will take place in special war zones, that will naturally pit the Empire against the Republic in all-out battle. Check out the trailer below to see what all the hubbub is about. Keep a bib around, as the trailer will cause you to spontaneously expel saliva.
