Star Wars: The Old Republic News

Latest Headlines for Star Wars: The Old Republic

  • Crafting and Galactic Strongholds

    We've all been trained long enough by the folks at BioWare Austin to remember that they'll tell us when they tell us and there isn't much we can do to hurry the process up. So I'm going to be constructive and cover some of the basics of how Galactic Strongholds has finally given crafters something relatively meaningful to do since the advent of the massive glut of orange moddable gear.

  • Forged Alliances Finale Spoilers and a Teaser for the Future

    The Rakata Prime Flashpoint teased at the PAX Prime Cantina Tour Stop does indeed complete the trilogy of Flashpoints that lead directly into the as-yet-unrevealed next expansion for Star Wars: the Old Republic. This past Tuesday, Community Manager Eric Musco and Lead Writer Charles Boyd took to the game's official Twitch channel to run through the Flashpoint and revealed who the big bad of that expansion might very well be.

  • PAX Weekend Roundup

    In the latest news roundup for Star Wars: the Old Republic, we have some information on upcoming content, but never enough to satiate ardent fans of the game, and there have also been some insights into the game's past construction. It still leaves so many questions and we're more than happy to speculate as necessary.

  • Galactic Strongholds Early Access Begins

    The first wave of Star Wars: The Old Republic players can now enjoy the benefits of hearth and home thanks to the arrival of the early access program for the latest update, Galactic Strongholds. Not only will players have their own place to call home, but guilds will have a Stronghold or can purchase a Flagship in which to gather.

  • Making Your Mark on the Galaxy in Galactic Strongholds

    Galactic Strongholds, the latest digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, is set to launch for subscribers in a couple of days here and we recently had a chance to take a tour of the new content with SWTOR senior producer Bruce MacLean and Galactic Strongholds producer Jack Wood.

  • The Story's the Thing

    When you build your corporate game development reputation on high-end storytelling, there shouldn't be much surprise when your fanbase expects the same level of quality out of any subsequent release. BioWare is synonymous with some of the richest stories in all of PC gaming, and with an intellectual property like Star Wars to play with, our expectations are understandably high.

  • All Aboard the SWTOR Hype Freighter!

    It's not unusual for a game studio to gather their crew to initiate some buzz for their latest release. This summer, BioWare's been revving up the Galactic Strongholds hype freighter more and more as we approach the August launch of Early Access for subscribers, and they've all but confirmed that Manaan will be the focus of the later expansion this year whose title has yet to be revealed.

  • Will Galactic Strongholds Be Your Star Wars Home?

    Ever since February, we knew about Galactic Strongholds as 'SWTOR Does Housing', but we really hadn't seen many details on how it will work, what it will entail, or perhaps most importantly, how much it will cost. BioWare Austin recently announced their plans to do a weekly livestream on on Thursdays to go over the features of the new expansion between now and when it soft launches in August.

  • Everything You Need to Know About Your Stronghold

    Bioware has published a new and extensive new developer blog on the Star Wars: The Old Republic site that gives players tons of new information about Galactic Strongholds. The digital expansion of the same name will give players a chance to own a piece of the game with their personal "bastion of military might and personal luxury". Players will find out more about how the stronghold is acquired, how various aspects are unlocked and much more.

  • Tatooine Homestead, Life in a Sandbox

    Bioware has released a new Star Wars: The Old Republic video that showcases the Tatooine Homestead, a humble abode that can be found on the galaxy's sandiest planet. The Tatooine Homestead is part of the upcoming digital expansion, Galactic Strongholds, that will bring housing into the game. All who have an active subscription by July 15th will be awarded a Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace for free.

  • Galactic Strongholds to be Previewed in Weekly Series

    Bioware is reviving the Star Wars: The Old Republic channel to get players prepped for the next digital expansion, Galactic Strongholds. The series will begin on Wednesday, July 3rd and continue weekly through the expansion's early access launch of Galactic Strongholds in mid-August.

  • Dude, Where's My Endgame?

    So, it's been two over two and a half years since Star Wars: the Old Republic launched, and even now, players are asking, 'Dude, where's my endgame?' While BioWare no doubt has better metrics than any of us as to why a number of players rushed to level cap when the game first launched and then wandered off, a common thread to the conversations was that the game launched with no real endgame in place.

  • Gambling and Group Finder: Game Update 2.8

    As was promised a couple of months ago, Star Wars: the Old Republic's Game Update 2.8 launched on June 10th. It wasn't without difficulty, as a number of players experienced severe troubles logging in, getting stuck in a Flashpoint, transitioning to other areas, using the group finder, or logging in and seeing an empty server list. The worst of the issues were resolved within twenty-four hours, but maintenance is posted for Friday to hopefully alleviate the rest.

  • A New Playable Race in SWTOR?

    Due to the voice acting present, there could never be a new race that could not speak Basic. Sorry, Wookiee fans, but despite the fact that Wookiees were playable in Star Wars: Galaxies and the Smuggler gets one as a companion, they'd have to rewire all of the voice acting to accommodate them in SWTOR. Same with folks wanting to play Trandoshans in homage to Qyzen Fess, or those of us crazy souls who think it would be pretty awesome to run around as a Jawa Jedi Knight.

  • New Roadmap, Adjusted Timeline, PTS Goodies

    Last week, Star Wars: the Old Republic's Senior Producer Bruce Maclean published his revised roadmap for the Summer of SWTOR. Couple that with his previously-published Producer Letter announcing the delay of the Galactic Strongholds expansion and the reasons for it, we have an overall message that they believe players would rather see a much bigger up-front expansion rather than trickling new features and updates along the road piecemeal.

  • Finally! Quality of Life Improvements

    Hands up if you've filed a ticket or simply complained about the fact you stomped the final boss in Black Talon or the Esseles flashpoint and just as you were going to jump back to Fleet, the game crashed. Tomorrow, Star Wars: the Old Republic will release Game Update 2.7.1, announcing the start of Ranked Warzone Season 2, Double XP weekend this weekend, and oh my Giradda, they say they're finally fixing that bug.

  • Celebrate Star Wars Day (Weekend) with a New Droid

    Bioware is inviting Star Wars: The Old Republic players to head into the game this weekend to celebrate Star Wars Day which takes place on May 4th. In honor of the day, players will receive a special commemorative droid as well as be able to take advantage of double experience gains throughout the weekend.

  • Galactic Strongholds Delayed

    Bioware's Bruce Maclean has penned a new Producer's Letter on the Star Wars: The Old Republic site that announces a delay in the release of the Galactic Strongholds expansion. According to the letter, the June early access will be shifted to August to give the team more time to make the expansion "truly feel like an expansion". From there, Maclean lays out some of what the team hopes to accomplish with the extra time.

    A new blog entry has been posted on the Star Wars: The Old Republic site that details some of the forthcoming changes to PvP Season 2 that will arrive with the v2.7.1 patch. Among other things, daily and weekly PvP quests will give players incentives to queue up for otherworldly domination and a shorter, more brutal season will come into play.
