Titled "Hope," the trailer takes place on the planet Alderaan, and shows off a bunch of republic soldiers in stormtrooper-looking armor taking on a bunch of Sith warriors and battle droids. Despite the presence of some Jedi woman who can block lightsabers with her bare hands, it's refreshing to see regular soldier-types taking on Sith without being treated too much like cannon fodder.
It wasn't all about the sexy non-gameplay CG, though. Presenters from Bioware and Lucasarts dropped some details on what players can expect. Among other things, they can expect to get their very own ship, and do PvP combat in special "Warzones" that recall great land battles from the movies and other work. Grand all around, I'd say.
Hit the jump for the full trailer!
