E3 2010: Exclusive new Old Republic vids bring the in-game sexy

Yesterday we brought you a goddamn jaw-dropping new trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic. We thought, and you agreed, that within just six minutes it managed to be better than the entire prequel trilogy. Go on, have another watch. You know you want to. We're going to in a minute.

And today, we've got even more, this time showing in-game footage. And it's pretty damn pretty indeed. First up is a vid showing armour progression for the Bounty Hunter class (who you know you're all gagging to play), showing the varying stages along the way to becoming a fully-plated up badass Boba-botherer. The second shows off some of the various ship types you can captain, both inside and out, and yes, we already want several. Real ones. Yesterday.

And we think we we're begining to detect a weird Street Fighter connection throughout these recent bits of Old Republic media. If you remember, there was a definite Hadoken moment in the last trailer, and if we're not very much mistaken you'll find something very similar to a Shoryuken in one of these. Go on, watch away and find it.

    I cant wait for this game I hope it works on my computer also quit bitching about how the combat looks "boring" the combat is just like KOTOR and that was amazing, no this combat is good, why does nobody bitch about the shit boring combat in EVERY Final Fantasy EVER! So if you didnt like KOTOR you wont want to play this so shut the fuck up!

    The first trailer was truly badass, but if it reflects on a game with in game combat that boring, it does little more then grease the wheels of hype on the fanboy train. I've never been one to get hyped for Star Wars, the originals were before my time, and the new ones...SUCKED. Curdled milk up my ass amounts of cheese. But that 5 minute trailer showed me there is hope to get me excited for Star Wars. Then you back it up with boring in game combat, a single character class, 2 generic star ships, and graphics that are stuck somewhere between Team Fortress 2 and the Green Army Man games I used to play with my cousin all those years ago? Well, shucks, I'm not impressed.

    It looks like I know what game will be dominating large amounts of my free time. Yep looks like the devs have a soft spot for Street Fighter. Ships look nice, combat is interesting too. I'd like to see more about troopers and smugglers soon. On the hope trailer I thought it was bad ass that even as the trooper was being shocked he still kept going at the dark jedi with a knife. I haven't been this excited for a game in a very long time.

  • hatebreeder - June 15, 2010 9:42 p.m.

    I'm really trying not to get excited for this game because of the pay monthly thing but the fact that you get yer own ship is something ive wanted in a star wars game since I was about 10..............BASTARDS!

    BioWare is on top of the world for me. Mass Effect 2 (just finished the AWESOME Overlord DLC), Dragon Age, and The Old Republic. Bioware, why do you kick so much ass?
  • Metroidhunter32 - June 15, 2010 8:26 p.m.

    Looks advanced most of the ways, but if that was actual combat, the fighting looks boring.
  • kcypher2000 - June 15, 2010 7:53 p.m.

    I hope this means there will be space combat.
  • ReconChicken - June 15, 2010 7:39 p.m.

    Looks sick!
  • JADENkOTOR - June 15, 2010 7:35 p.m.

    This game is going to blow everyones mind and BioWARE will stayed perched atop the gaming world on its mighty thrown. I REALLY want another fucking KOTOR though. Please make this happen... and Jade Empire
  • nomnom52 - June 15, 2010 7:23 p.m.

    Holy Shit! That Sith one is badass. I agree GR, I want it NOW!
  • IsaacFenix - June 15, 2010 7:11 p.m.

    Definite Shoryuken in the video.
