It’s becoming tradition to get jaw-dropping cinematic trailers for the upcoming MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic from the annual E3 expo — and this year is no exception.

With the launch expected later this year, you can bet that expectations are high — and this latest peek at the MMO Far, Far Away doesn’t disappoint. Entitled “Return” and billed as the “intro cinematic,” here’s a description, followed by the goods themselves for your viewing pleasure:

For over a thousand years, the Sith were thought to be extinct after a grave defeat in an ancient war. But a select few survived, fleeing to unknown regions to escape Republic forces. In the centuries since, the Sith have prepared; rebuilding their Empire for the day they would make their return to reclaim what was once theirs and take their revenge on the Republic.

That day has arrived.
