SWTOR Game Update 1.2 News: Star Wars: The Old Republic patch game update 1.2 adds Legacy system, Operation: Explosive Conflict, Flashpoint: The Lost Island.
Prepare yourself for SWTOR Game Update 1.2, as its release date is imminent: tomorrow, April 12. That's when EA's Origin servers will push the long-awaited patch to subscribers of the popular Star Wars MMO. By far, the biggest change in the Game Update 1.2 patch is the Legacy system, which allows you to tie different characters together in a family tree. That's right, as we previewed with the release of the Legacy System trailer, you no longer have to pretend the similar-looking characters you create are one close-knit family. Of course, the characters in your Legacy system don't have to be close-knight: i.e. if you're goal is a recreation of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader father-son relationship.
Besides Legacy system, SWTOR Game Update 1.2 is adding a new Operation, Flashpoint and Warzone. Operation: Explosive Conflict is a Denova-set operation in which you take on ?some of the greatest threads in the galaxy? following a truce between Imperial invaders and Republic-backed mercenaries. The problem? The two groups have sworn an allegiance to a powerful warlord. Republic and Empire likes that. EA promises that this operation will include powerful weapons and armor that can be earned with progress. The new Warzone
in SWTOR Game Update 1.2, Novare Coast, is also set in Denova.
SWTOR Game Update 1.2 has its new Flashpoint
, The Lost Island, pick up right where Game Update 1.1.'s Flashpoint, Kaon Under Siege, had ended. This means that you're out hunting the party responsible for the outbreak of the Rakghoul virus that devastated the Tion Hegemony. The location: Ord Mantell. You and up to three other players (Republic or Imperial) battle ?endless hordes of twisted creatures? before taking on the main responsible for the virus.
Rounding out Game Update 1.2, Star Wars: The Old Republic should look better. BioWare is updating the graphics with high-resolution textures and a customizable user interface. SWTOR will also see guild banks, warzone ranking, optimizations to combat balance and the squashing of many, many bugs among the changes brought by the 1.2 patch.
As Gaming Target reported late last month, SWTOR could reach a total of one million subscribers
, according to DFC Intelligence. That significant because SWTOR's model flies in the face of the growing free-to-play trend. SWTOR has been able to forgo to F2P business model with an exciting license and DLC like Game Update 1.2.
