Star Wars: The Old Republic Battle for Alderaan Trailer

It seems that BioWare felt Dantooine was far too remote to make for an effective demonstration of their MMO's gameplay.

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

Leia may have been exaggerating a bit when she told Vader in A New Hope that, “Alderaan is peaceful! We have no weapons”. All of the fighting going down in this new Old Republic trailer really contradicts the idea of Alderaan being a sort of outer-space Switzerland. Or perhaps the planet spent the many years between this game and the movie developing into the peace-loving hippie planet that Leia makes it out to be. We might never find out what the truth is there, but the new video does tell us something: The Old Republic looks awesome.
