E3: Star Wars: The Old Republic Wrap-Up

Posted By Mike on June 14, 2011

E3 2011 has come and gone and while we provided numerous coverage updates regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic, let's take a step back and organize all the videos, previews, interviews and impressions that came out of this year's expo. I think its safe to say that the biggest splash at E3 for Star Wars fans certainly seemed to be centered around the cinematic intro video for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

As promised, Star Wars: The Old Republic delivered more new content than ever before at E3 ranging from the aforementioned cinematic intro to gameplay previews and raid details. Naturally, SWTOR.com has posted their E3 round-up which includes videos of the cinematic intro "Return," a gameplay features preview, the Eternity Vault Raid, and the Tatooine Developer Walkthrough. In addition, the official site of Star Wars: The Old Republic notes updates to the Game Overview and Game Setting pages.

Most outside impressions of the game seem to be rather positive noting gameplay and graphics improvements from previous gameplay previews. We've broken down the coverage (outside of SWTOR.com) by category below for your convenience.
