Star Wars: The Old Republic Cinematic Trailer: Lovely

The gorgeous E3 cinematic trailer for Mass Effect creator BioWare's PC MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic arrived, showing a splendid battle between the Jedi and Sith.

EA's E3 press conference also brought news that every player will get their own starship. "We want a player's ship to represent not only a rite of passage in the game, but the player's own personal style," explained Bioware co-founder Greg Zeschuk.

PvP 'Warzones' were unveiled too, described as "fierce battles that evoke memories of Star Wars ground wars"--much as in the cinematic trailer--in locales including Alderaan.

The developer revealed in January that it was then "targeting a spring 2011 release for Star Wars: The Old Republic." Parent company EA will naturally be publishing.
