Earlier today at the Star Wars: The Old Republic Guild Summit in North America, BioWare revealed a brand new video outlining the array of new features, content and updates players can expect to see when Game Update 1.2 – Legacy goes live. Game Update 1.2 – Legacy will include brand new playable in-game content including the “Explosive Conflict” Operation, a new Flashpoint “Lost Island” and Warzone “Novare Coast.” The next major Game Update will also include a bevy of new features including the next evolution of the Legacy system, Player-vs-Player Warzone ranking, UI Customization, Guild Banks and more. There was tons of anticipation for SWTOR, and I know folks are still pouring tons of hours into it, but is it as big of a success as had hoped?
In other news, BioWare also announced the introduction of the Friends Trial program. Beginning today, March 6th, current subscribers can start inviting their friends to join the galactic conflict as part of the Friends Trial program for Star Wars: The Old Republic. For a limited time, current subscribers will have the opportunity to send an invitation to friends who have not played the game and who do not have an active, inactive or former Star Wars: The Old Republic game account. This trial experience will give new players seven days of free access to reach level 15 across all eight classes and experience the thrilling stories that make Star Wars: The Old Republic a unique MMO experience (some gameplay restrictions will apply). Trial members will also receive a limited time offer to purchase the digital version of Star Wars: The Old Republic on Origin.com at a special promotional price.
