Star Wars The Old Republic Is Celebrating 10 Years With 4K Remasters Of Its Trailers

Star Wars: The Old Republic is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and the MMORPG is doing so in cinematic fashion that fits the franchise. BioWare and EA have taken to remastering its trailers in full 4K and re-releasing them one by one throughout the celebration.

The celebration leads up to the 10th anniversary of the MMORPG, which launched on December 20th, 2011. Trailers have always been a strong suit for BioWare's MMORPG, in fact leading me to install the MMO when I saw one of their trailers back in 2015 (and again last week when writing that article, in fact). The "Deceived" trailer, which was the first to be remastered, originally released in 2009 and was used to set up the MMO pre-release. Since then, the team has released the second of its trailers in full 4K glory.

Released on June 6th, 2011, the "Return" trailer kicks off with the familiar Jedi theme heard in the iconic movie franchise. The trailer shows the moment the Sith Empire returns, complete with a smuggler, heart-pumping lightsaber action and more. 

Star Wars: The Old Republic is still going strong, with its upcoming Legacy of the Sith expansion due out this year still. You can check out the 4K trailers in the embeds below. And, if you're interested, the next trailer "Hope" is due out this week according to Twitter. If you're like me too and want to get caught up on the story so far, as well as what is going into making Legacy of the Sith, make sure to check out our interview with Charles Boyd from last week. Also, BioWare recently released a "Story So Far" video, recapping 9 years od storytelling ahead of the upcoming expansion.
