The Old Republic RETURN Intro Cinematic Trailer

A new The Old Republic trailer, Return, was unveiled at E3 2011. It’s nothing short of awesome.

Protected by the legendary Jedi Order, the Galactic Republic stood as a bastion of peace in the galaxy for a thousand generations. Several centuries ago, the greatest threat the galaxy has ever known emerged in the form of the dark Sith Empire. After a volatile war, the Republic emerged victorious and the Sith were assumed to be extinct. Nonetheless, the Jedi have maintained a constant vigil over the ancient Sith homeworld, to protect the galaxy from the darkness that still resides in the planet’s tombs.

Galactic News Minute (5.30-6.5)

  • Star Wars Books has posted an excerpt from the upcoming Fate of the Jedi: ASCENSION novel due to be released this August. [Link]

    She pointed to a message flashing on the screen.
    INFORMATION YOU WILL WANT TO HAVE.
    SAFETY FOR YOUR FAMILY GUARANTEED.
    REPLY FOR MORE.
    Short and completely mysterious, Han mused, frowning a little.
    It came in on my private channel.
    The one only about six people and two droids have access to?
    That would be the one.

  • In a recent interview with Suvudu, Aaron Allston talks EU and gives us a few details from his upcoming Wraith Squadron novel, which is currently slated for a July 2012 release. [Link]

    Most of the action takes place in the same approximate period as Fate of the Jedi, but there are critical chapters that revisit the Wraiths in earlier years, starting just after they made the jump to become an Intelligence unit. The current-era story reunites some of the longtime Wraiths, introduces new ones, and even has second-generation Wraiths.

    Not every subplot that arose in Fate of the Jedi will have been resolved by that series’ end, and it’s up to the Wraiths to clean up a big mess left behind. That’s about all I’m willing to say at this time.
