According to BioWare (developer), this MMO “game is set 3,600 years prior to the events of the Star Wars movies, and 300 years after the events of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

BioWare has unleashed the first in-game footage from its upcoming Star Wars MMO, The Old Republic. Presented in documentary format, it’s quite heavy on lightsaber dueling (thankfully with ones less chubby than those in the above screenshot).
