Hope Cinematic Trailer is Up!

The Hope Cinematic trailer is now available for download here.

"The Battle of Alderaan. The Republic's gravest hour. Recently promoted to Darth, Malgus launches the first of many surprise attacks that would become his trademark during the Great War, perfectly timing the assault with a feint that pulls the Republic fleet light-years away. Thousands of assault droids and hundreds of Sith set the heart of the Republic ablaze, and Alderaan's few defenders are swept away with ease.

Unknown to Darth Malgus, small groups of Republic Troopers are stationed on Alderaan, some recovering from wounds, others are awaiting orders. As these brave soldiers take to the forests and mountains to fight a guerilla campaign against Malgus's forces, the Republic fleet rushes back to repel the invasion. With time running out and Alderaan's capitol threatened, it falls to Havoc Squad, the elite Republic Special Forces unit, to coordinate one last desperate stand against Malgus' vastly superior numbers."

Enjoy! Looks like we are going back in time a bit for this one, prior to the Treaty of Coruscant.

Interesting. Found this in the comments secion of Darth Hater. Apparently someone posted a lot of details about SWTOR that are now confirmed, and he did so in 2007! Looks like he took part in some early survey thing: http://www.ahazi.org/forums/showthread.php?t=10846

By the way, is there any way to turn off the video's auto-play? It's annoying that everytime I check back on the site I have to stop the video.

Kalvod Ku'arad said...

Yea let me see if i can turn it off, if i can't I'll just take it down.

Fabian said...

Thanks, Kalvod. Hope you're feeling better, by the way.

One more thing about the trailer: Malgus's Twi'lek companion was nowhere to be seen. Of course she just might have been somewhere else, but I'm thinking they hadn't met at that point yet.

Tell me what you guys think of my analysis. I believe it is more thorough than any analysis I've seen so far.

About Malgus' companion, I noticed that as well. I also found it odd that we didn't see Shae Vizla in action again. Bioware may have eventually decided to scrap her scenes and give more emphasis to the Troopers.

Any speculation on the last "hadouken" Force power by the hot Jedi Consular? Force Wave seems consistent and is an advanced form of push... but the destructive nature makes me think it could actually be Force Destruction (a light-side version of it) or even a ball of Electric Judgement mixed with a Push/Wave (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Electric_Judgment).

Thank you for posting that link MIcky, we would not have included it in show 38 if you hadn't mentioned it while we were recording!

After the Hope Cinematic Trailer was released, I became a devoted SWTOR player! I was hooked by the storyline, plus the graphics are outstanding! Trooper is my favorite story, up to now. I haven't played Knight yet, but I hear Smuggler and Agent have great lines too.
