You may think that the focus of BioWare's upcoming MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, is great sci-fi storytelling or addictive World of Warcraft-style gameplay. Both of those are partially correct, but there's another important element of The Old Republic: a growing and brutal war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire.

EA released this new trailer for The Old Republic at New York Comic-Con. In it, you can glimpse a few examples of how your actions will have an effect on the impending conflict around the universe -- as well as a look at said conflict on a few different battlefields.

With only a couple of months left until this long-anticipated MMO's release, this should be one of the final trailers we'll see for the game. Enjoy it!
