Star Wars: The Old Republic Content Update 2 Detailed

Posted on January 16, 2012 AT 07:53am

THE BUZZ: The first content update for Star Wars: The Old Republic is set to release tomorrow, however BioWare is already sharing its plans for a second update scheduled for March.

The update will include three new major pieces of content along with the first parts of the game’s legacy system. ”Game Update 2 is much bigger in scope. It’s further out from launch, so we can have much more of the team focussed on it. There’s Part 2 of Rise of the Rakghouls, a brand new planet called Denova which has an 8-16 man Operation and a new Warzone,” said Game Director James Ohlen. ”We might also be able to get some new space game missions into it. In addition to that we have single player content that you’ll be able to go through as well…”

Ohlen also explained the game’s legacy system in more detail:

“It’s a system that really benefits players who like to play alts – instead of having characters who have no relation to each other you can create a family, and when you’re playing any member of that family you earn experience points for your Legacy tree. Those then unlock abilities and perks that help improve all your characters. I think that’s going to be popular. Characters can be related to your main character in all kinds of ways – siblings, father, son, friend, you could be married to them…”

EGM’s TAKE: It’s good to see BioWare constantly bringing new content for fans to enjoy, and should hopefully help them secure a large and consistent fanbase.
