BioWare has delivered a live-action trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic in an attempt to attract new blood and also get previous players back into the game.
The trailer basically features a bunch of ordinary people who all have force powers. There’s force lifting, pushing, heavy blaster cannons, and lightsabers galore. The advert ends with two armies made up of Sith and Jedi charging at each other. You may recognize some of the footage from a clip shown at Gamescom in 2012.
The advert accompanies a new announcement by the developer which is designed to encourage players to subscribe before the end of October. New players, lapsed subscribers, and current subscribers will all receive the JA-3 Subversive Battle Droid Mini-Pet and a JA-3 Subversive Speeder for free as long as they have an active subscription on October 20. Also previous players who resubscribe by October 20 will also receive 500 Cartel Coins.
