Star Wars: The Old Republic celebrates its 10th anniversary. To celebrate, Electronic Arts and BioWare will launch a new expansion, Legacy of the Sith. In a press release, the North American company has defined it as “a great expansion”, which will mark the beginning of a “new and exciting stage” for the MMORPG from the creators of Mass Effect and Dragon Age. Players will have the opportunity to experience new stories and enjoy new features.
In Legacy of the Sith we will have to embark on a military campaign with the aim of conquering a very important planet for the faction to which we belong. The second goal will be to discover the ultimate plan of the renegade Darth Malgus. The update will increase the maximum number of levels by 5, until reaching a total of 80. They promise more complicated challenges and more collaborative missions, such as the one that will take us to a tomb on the top of a mountain on the planet Elom, or the one that will invite us to explore a research station in deep space. We will visit other places such as the aquatic planet Manaan.
New features and improvements
According to EA, the expansion will also introduce improvements to the player experience: Combat Styles expands the options and implements a number of improvements. Will be able independently choose a class story and combine it with a skill set from other classes. The character creation system will be strengthened and there will be changes to the cargo loadout experience, as well as an improved design of the classes.
Star Wars: The Old Republic, which is available on PC via SWTOR.com and Steam, will continue to celebrate its 10th birthday in 2022, so it will also “introduce new content, events, updates and much more.” It can be played for free, but it also works under a monthly subscription model, like other titles of this genre.
