Star Wars: The Old Republic – The entire reveal presentation in video

LucasArts passed over a video edit of the entire reveal presentation of BioWare MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic today, held in San Francisco last week. Watch it after the break.

The movie is nearly 20 minutes long, and contains large sections of talk from BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, as well as talk-throughs on art style and level design from senior developers at the studio.

There are several sections in there from LucasArts president Darrell Rodriguez.

And no: there’s no footage of gameplay. Two trailers were shown at the event – one on the history of the KOTOR franchise, and one showing early gameplay – but both have been edited out. Apparently there’s a movie exclusive deal in place with a US broadcaster, so no such luck for you, we’re afraid.

We were there, if you recall, so you’ll just have to trust us when we say it did look awesome. Read our live blog of the event to see what happened.

Watch the video, innit.
