Star Wars: The Old Republic Patch 1.5 now on the PTS, Includes HK-51

Posted on October 12, 2012 AT 04:13am

BioWare has released patch 1.5 for Star Wars: The Old Republic on the game’s Public Test Server, so be sure to hop on and give it a try.

Patch 1.5 includes a brand new companion in the form of HK-51, a new daily area called Sector X, and a Nightmare difficulty option for the Explosive Conflict Operation. Sadly BioWare can’t offer any new character copies to the PTS so if you don’t have one on there already then you’re in trouble. A quick rundown of the patch can be found below:

  • New playable companion, HK-51 – Begin your journey to unlock one of the galaxies deadliest assassins.
  • Section X –Head to Belsavis to discover this new daily hub and learn what you can do to help stop the Dread Masters in their newest scheme.
  • Nightmare Mode Explosive Conflict – Take on even greater challenges in Explosive Conflict to earn the final pieces of the Dread Guard set and more.

You can check out the full patch notes here.
