Update 1.3 Now Available In Star Wars: The Old Republic
Bioware and LucasArts have just announced the details on the latest update for their critically acclaimed MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic. The update follows an announcement that Star Wars: The Old Republic will soon be becoming a free online RPG game, as opposed to the current subscription model.
The update introduces a number of changes to various systems within the game, including the highly requested Group Finder. No more hanging around outside Flashpoints or Operations waiting for players to show up, now with a few simple clicks of your mouse, you can be matched with people looking for the same instance and the right character classes.
Other highlights of the update can be seen below
·Ranked Warzones – make PvP more challenging and more rewarding. You can now create a group, compete in ranked warzones, and then track your personal performance and measure your skills against other players.
·Legacy Character Perks – perks give you the opportunity to customize the leveling experience for your Legacy characters. You can focus on the parts of the game you like best, whether that’s space combat, PvP,or Group Missions and Flashpoints, you can choose which activities earn the most experience. The perks give you other bonus opportunities as well, like piloting a vehicle at level 10, earning bonus affection with companions, and even being able to reallocate your skill points in the field.
·Adaptive Gear – allows you to wear your favorite social gear into combat while still enjoying the bonuses you receive from your best combat gear. We’ll almost certainly be seeing more eccentric-looking groups tackling high-level operations, but that’s part of the fun.
