The Old Republic Getting Two Expansions in 2014


By: Lillian Skye

It has been confirmed by Bruce Maclean, Senior producer at Bioware, that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be getting two expansions this year. "The team that brought you 2013 is still here and working hard to bring you another action packed year," he wrote in a post regarding the game's future.

According to the Producer's Road Map for 2014, the first update, Galactic Starfighter Digital Expansion, is set to release today. The update introduces new features such as six new Galactic Starfighter ships, detailed scoreboards about in-game battle performance, and Kuat Drive Yards Tactical Flashpoint, which scales in difficulty with your level in the game.  Through the expansion, Galactic Starfighter is now available to free-to-play users.

Other updates include double XP weekend March 14th through the 17th, and two new Flashpoints on Tython and Korriban starting April 8th. New ships and "the biggest update up to this point" are coming in June.

Although updates are subject to change, Maclean said that The Old Republic team is actively developing new updates for the game in addition to new PvP Seasons, Flashpoints, Operations, and gear. Players should expect to see performance improvements as well as changes coming to Classes.
