Sith Vs Jedi in Times Square

To promote the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic, the game’s publishers put on an elaborate display of force-powered action in Times Square. Don’t let me spoil it for you, check out the video below for the Sith vs Jedi brawls:

There were a few hundred people in attendance and even more watching. I thought it was pretty damn impressive myself and I can’t begin to imagine the hours of preparation that went into this.

Well, since we’re talking about it anyway, here’s an official synopsis of BioWare’s Old Republic as well as their cinematic trailers, which are pretty damn amazing.
