E3 2015 EA - Star Wars The Old Republic Knights of The Fallen Empire 6

Electronic Arts showed a cinematic trailer for their forthcoming expansion to the free to play MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic. Subtitled Knights of the Fallen Empire, the EA presentation promised that this new content would bring the storytelling back to a more traditional Bioware experience, with dynamic choices and a player driven narrative based on decisions they make and their resulting outcomes. EA also promised that there would be new worlds to explore and new companions to recruit to your cause. The expansion will be free to all subscribers and is slated for release this October.

The cinematic trailer showed two young boys, presumably twinbrothers, growing up and eventually becoming Jedi knights. They deal with war and the sometimes unforgiving consequences as one of them is disfigured after sustaining an injury on the battlefield. There is some great Jedi action in the trailer as well, culminating in the pair having a difference of opinion about the man they are serving under. The trailer ends with the two in direct opposition to one another. Knights of the Fallen Empire is promising to deliver an emotionally charged storytelling experience, if the cinematic trailer is anything to go by.  Check it out below!
