It’s been a long time coming, but finally Game Update 1.4 for Star Wars: The Old Republic is now live on the game’s Public Test Server, so grab your lightsaber and go check it out.
The major addition with this update is a brand new Operation known as Terror From Beyond which takes place on the remote planet of Asation, where players are tasked with helping the Gree defend their world from the dangers that are pouring out of a recently activated ancient Hypergate. Other improvements included in 1.4:
- New Weapons and Armor – Upgrade your characters’ effectiveness and appearance with the Legendary Dread Guard gear.
- Improved Group Finder –Join a group for an Operation or Flashpoint and return to your previous location when you’ve completed the mission.
- Unify Colors for Companions – You can now select an option to match all your companion’s gear to his or her chest piece for a more stylish look.
- New ‘Facial Expression’ Emotes – A new set of slash commands will allow you to set your character’s expression. Let the rest of the galaxy know how you really feel.
The patch should be hitting live servers within the next few weeks, providing that testing goes well.
