Yesterday during the EA press conference at E3, Bioware sort of disappointed by showing off a CG trailer that was really just a combination of the previous two trailers. Today the actual CG intro cinematic for The Old Republic has been released, and it's absolutely awesome. This is the intro that you'll see after starting the game for the first time.
