SWTOR expansion trailer is nominated for a Webby

Here’s a welcome shot of publicity for Star Wars: The Old Republic this week. Knights of the Eternal Throne’s “Betrayed” trailer was nominated for a Webby Award for the Long Form (Branded) category alongside companies such as BMW and Chipotle. The public can view and vote for whichever short film they think is the best, so obviously SWTOR would appreciate your help in propelling it to the top.

The trailer, created by Blur and directed by Dave Wilson, was released to promote last fall’s expansion. It shows the backstory of a powerful Force-using family and the separate paths that certain members took over the course of their lives. Also, it has a girl Force-crushing an armored soldier like he was a soda can, so that’s pretty awesome.

If you need a refresher on the trailer in question, we’ve got it for you after the break.

One day I hope Blur has the opportunity to make a fully animated movie of something.

It deserves the award it is a fantastic trailer. Blur studios pretty much set the bar when it comes to cinematics these days though.

So basically the nomination goes to Blur not to SWTOR.

Going through the webbies, there was also one for “Blizzard Entertainment A New Hero” about esports. And even a VR category.

I love that The Last Bastion, a short with no words, is listed in the “Best Writing” category.
