Star Wars: The Old Republic Knights of the Eternal Throne TrailerOctober 10th, 2016
This is a cinematic trailer for the latest expansion of the free-to-play MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. But you don’t have to be interested in the game to enjoy the video. The trailer is a short film about Vaylin, the daughter of Valkorion, an emperor who used the Dark Side of the Force to live and rule for thousands of years. Vaylin exhibited a strong bond with the Force at an early age, so Valkorion sent her away to be trained as a living weapon. Her mother Senya, herself a mighty warrior, regrets that she let her daughter be taken away.
I recommend reading the characters’ profiles if you liked the short. If you haven’t seen it, you should also watch the trailer to The Old Republic’s past expansion, which is about the equally sad story of Vaylin’s brothers Arcann and Thexan. It’s like the Force is strongest in unhappy families.
