SWTOR Update 1.1 Rise of the Rakghouls lands next week

Postby ImmortalOne » Thu Jan 12, 2012 20:27

Bioware has announced game Update 1.1, Rise of the Rakghouls, will be released for Star Wars: The Old Republic next week.


Rise of the Rakghouls will introduce new, higher level group content, game feature additions as well as balancing and bug fixes. It also features a new Flashpoint and a new Operation as well as level 50 bracketing for PvP WarZones, the addition of anti-aliasing and changes to Open World PvP on Ilum.

Flashpoint: Kaon Under Siege is located on Kaon, a neutral planet in the Tion Hegemony. In the content, four Republic or Imperial players must go to the planet in order to eliminate the Rakghouls outbreak, and secure the allegiance of the Tion Hegemony. This Flashpoint will be available for level 50 characters only and will feature Normal and Heroic modes.

Operation: Karagga’s Palace is a continuation of the game’s second launch Operation. In the Operation, teams of 8 or 16 players will be up against Karagga and the Hutt Cartel after the Hutts abandon their neutrality and breach agreements made on both sides. Both factions will send teams to confront Karagga and determine his intentions. This Operation will feature Normal, Heroic and Nightmare difficulty modes.

“A month ago when we launched the Early Game Access program for Star Wars: The Old Republic, we promised our fans that this would just be the beginning of our journey together,” said GM and Bioware co-founder Greg Zeschuk. “Rise of the Rakghouls adds a lot of the things our community has been asking for – additional higher level group content, features like anti-aliasing, PvP bracketing and more.

“In the future, game updates will be even more substantial, as we promise to continue to not only add to The Old Republic, but to also improve and refine the experience with the full Legacy System and new Guild features.”

The game update releases on January 17. The next update is planned for March 2012 and will include new Flashpoints, Operations, WarZones and new game systems.
