If you've been following our Star Wars: The Old Republic coverage you already knew there was an update coming out this week. You knew that it added a new Flashpoint, a new Operation, and a bunch of other new features that fans have been requesting since the game launched last month. Well, know-it-all, here's something that you might not have known: it was delayed for a day. That's right. It didn't come out on the 17 as originally anticipated - it came out today, instead, and it's currently waiting for you to download it.

If you're still on the fence as to whether or not the game is for you we'd direct you to our in-depth review of the game, where we explain everything you need to know about BioWare's Star Wars MMO in an easy-to-digest 3,500 words. The review, however, is a living document, and will change as the game is updated, so be sure to check back from time to time to see if updates - like this one - change our opinion. It doesn't look like this is going to be the one to make much of a dent, but with promises of an expanded Legacy system and more PvP Warzones coming in future updates we're not ruling anything out.
