The latest Star Wars: The Old Republic update is live: benefits of patching include
free game-time for high-level players, an adorable complementary pet,
and the deep customization possibilities afforded by the game's new
Legacy system. However! The incurably ADD among you will be pleased
to know that there's also plenty of explosive conflict on offer –
as shown in this trailer, conveniently titled “Explosive Conflict”
so you don't go mistaking it for a UI tutorial.
The more thinky players
among you – don't worry, we can speak freely while everyone else is
distracted by 'splosions – can read more detailed information about
the update over at the game's page. There you'll also find a
newly-launched contest, exclusive to tOR players, to win a life-sized
Darth Malgus figure valued at $6000. Which is an impressive prize indeed – but if
this terrifying thing would look at home in your living room, please
never, ever invite us over for games evenings.
