Star Wars: The Old Republic CG opening blows minds

BioWare's best yet. Countless Bothans presumed to have died during production.

An E3 without a stunningly produced CG trailer for The Old Republic was feeling mighty strange indeed, until this little beauty showed up.

The introductory cinematic for the long-awaited Star Wars MMO leaves no nerd-stone unturned.

Built entirely around the pattern of the escape from the original Death Star, it also makes for a fun game of spot the reference. Can you spot the Han Solo-like character? The Millennium Falcon replacement? How about the Vader's arrival riff, and the moment you feel you need to shout "Don't get cocky, kid!"?

As always, go full screen for HD.
