BioWare’s Star Wars’ MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) has re-released its original 2009 trailer in 4K in celebration of its 10-year anniversary.

MMO fans have seen the meteoric rise and fall of several RPGs over the years. From industry veterans like Blizzard’s World of Warcraft to newer titles on the block like Elder Scrolls Online, titles that make up the history of the genre are both vast and shallow. There are an innumerable amount of games that pop up under the category with varying levels of success. Some announced games, in fact, never got off the ground—such as Amazon’s Lord of the Rings Online.

BioWare’s Star Wars title, however, seems to have made a name for itself among the stars.

In celebration of the game’s 10-year run, BioWare has released one of its classic cinematic trailers that originally debuted in 2009. The trailer is titled “Deceived” and features the exact invasion that sparked the Treaty of Coruscant.

The assault took place during the Great War between the Republic and the Empire. During this time, Darth Malgus planned and executed an invasion on the Republic home world of Coruscant, completely sacking the planet and its capital city in the name of the Empire. This was a devastating blow to the Republic, who eventually moved to negotiate an often-described “uneasy” peace between the two factions.

Unsurprisingly, this was not to last, but that’s something for the MMO to explain.

SWTOR, itself, launched in 2011, and has been running ever since. It is free-to-play with paid cosmetic add-ons on subscriptions available. Like any game from BioWare, it features a variety of storytelling and narrative elements crafted to fit each class and player archetype stemming from the iconic divide between the Dark and Light sides.
