Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s patch 1.2 will be released tomorrow and Bioware is tuning the action up another level. Beside the implementation of the long awaited Legacy-system (which has been postponed since the release), one new raid called “Explosive Conflict”, as well as the flashpoint “The Lost Island” will be added to a galaxy far far away. The Lost Island is located on the planet Ord Mantell and follows the story of the operation Kaon Under Siege (it takes place immediately after it). Having learned the identity of the culprit responsible for the outbreak of the Rakghoul virus at Tion Hegemony, you and your party travel to Ord Mantell to put an end to the madness before the virus can spread any further.
The expanded universe and the new pve content is not all that is coming with patch 1.2. One of the more interesting additions to Star Wars: The Old Republic is the all new warzone Novare Coast. The main objective is to secure a vital beach, and the team that controls the beach controls the planet. In order to do this, you need to possess three big turrets, much like the warzone Alderaan Civil War.
Biowares space-MMO seems to remain a strong competitor to World of Warcraft and has stabilized its subscribers around 2 million. If you are one of those players who is longing for tomorrows adventure; may the Force be with you!
