"Deceived" Cinematic Trailer Released!

I kind of already reported on this, but I thought I'd make an official post to announce the "Deceived" Cinematic Trailer (as it's just that awesome). As such I've removed the video tag from the previous post (counting the links to the video as 'links' instead).

As per the official news post:

The Sacking of Coruscant. It was the crowning achievement of the Sith Empire’s ambitious military strategy and the moment that changed the history of the Old Republic forever. You may have read about it before, but our first cinematic trailer captures this event with breathtaking action and beautiful detail.

Republic leaders have traveled to Alderaan to engage in promised peace talks with the Sith Empire. The most powerful Jedi have accompanied them to safeguard against an Imperial deception. The Empire’s real motive, however, was simply to lure the Republic’s strongest defenders away from Coruscant and set the stage for an audacious attack. Under the command of Lord Angral, the Sith fleet approaches the Republic’s capital planet for the first time in centuries. In advance of the fleet, the strongest Sith Warriors have flown a stolen Republic ship into Coruscant’s orbit. Their mission is critical – to destroy the planet’s defense grid mainframe hidden in the heart of the Jedi Temple.

Watch the Deceived cinematic trailer now!

Still a very impressive movie.

On a related note, for those thinking that the Sith might be Malak (and indeed he does have some vague resemblance with the mouth piece and everything), BioWare has clearly stated that it's not Darth Malak.

[EDIT] Oh, and I forgot to mention. The newly released Holonet has a page for classes. As you can see there are eight slots for classes, four on each side, so it stands to reason that there are eight classes. The Bounty Hunter and the Trooper are the only ones officially 'revealed' thus far and we know that they're 'revealing' the Smuggler class this week. We also know that Jedi and Sith will be two more classes, making the total of known classes five. That leaves three classes. Of these the Twi'lek girl in the cinematic trailer is likely one (likely the Empire counterpart to the Republic's Smuggler), perhaps a Spy or Imperial Intelligence Agent or such. So that leaves two, which I personally believe will be a Senator/Diplomat type class (the Leia/Padmé-archetype) and some kind of Imperial Officer type class (the Grand Moff Tarkin-archetype). But we'll see.
