Details Revealed about SWTOR Update 1.2 - Legacy

Details Revealed about SWTOR  Update 1.2 - Legacy  - Star Wars: The Old Republic -

Players of Star Wars: The Old Republic can look forward to several big improvements and additions in the next update 1.2 - Legacy, which is aiming for an early April window. Along with Legacy content updates, a new Warzone, Flashpoint, and Operation, the update will also introduce free trials.

Update 1.2 will also introduce some of the most requested features such as guild banks and ranked Warzones (with ranked gear tiers). But the central piece, and what the update is obviously named after, might just be the Legacy system.

Players can link their characters across the server into a single family tree, which will allow the unlocking of several Legacy-specific abilities. As preiously indicated, you'll be able to select from the previously available species list across classes you have already played to customize your experience further. (Sith Pureblood Jedi, anyone?) Legacy will also introduce a few convenience features like a mailbox and Galactic Trade Network access aboard your ship.

In-game events are coming too. And these are intended to make the game feel more dynamic, with a team behind them. 

The new Flashpoint, Lost Island will continue the Kaon Under Siege update from Rise of the Rakghouls. As an outbreak takes place on Ord Mantell, players must survive and solve the mystery of the outbreak itself.

The new Operation - Explosive Content sends teams of eight or 16 into a new zone on Denova where players must take on hordes of droids, mercs, and other enemies to retrieve some valuable resources.

And the new Warzone is Novare Coast, which will put the two teams in conflict over control of mortar control locations. Like Huttball, this can be played in opposite faction or in mixed faction teams.

And finally, the other major news with this update is the introduction of the "Friends Trial" program for the game. Players can invite up to three friends for a seven day free trial. Those who try the game can then order it via Origin at a discount.

The trial program begins tomorrow, March 6th. More info will be on

Update!: Someone has uploaded the trailer shown at the Guild Summit for Update 1.2. We will be replacing it with our own better copy as soon as we can., but you can watch below:
