Star Wars: The Old Republic, a game who’s main contribution to society has been short films that each on their own are better than all of the prequels put together, has an expansion coming out later this year. No, I didn’t know of this either. However the silver lining, as it has been for close to a decade now, is a sweet trailer that’s been released to hype it up.

If, like me, you’re someone who likes cinematic video game trailers, but finds themselves disappointed by the “masterful” Overwatch trailers, this really hits the spot. Barely any dialogue, and yet we get a tale of a tortured family, and secrets that ultimately lead to anguish. The mother-daughter relationship that plays out here is almost a reverse Darth Vader-Luke Skywalker dynamic when you think about it...


Star Wars: The Old Republic- Knights of the Eternal Throne will be released December 2, 2016 on PC, free to all current subscribers.
