SWTOR : Updates for Summer 2013

If you ask 10 MMO gamers what they would ask for from developers and community managers, at least 9 of them will tell you the same thing first: "Information on updates, what's to come next." That's always the most popular. And I can understand why. Every game has its flaws and features that we believe it lacks.  Unfortunately, in many cases, developers are highly reticent about development plans and we don't get more than a monthly update with only pre-approved material. 

If today's post by Bioware's senior producer Bruce Maclean is not just a one time thing, we're up for a solid communication between developers of SWTOR regarding upcoming content updates to the MMORPG.

Star Wars the Old Republic updates 2.3 and 2.4

So what did he have to say about the coming updates for Star Wars The Old Republic. 

First one, update 2.2 is coming on June 11th (we already knew about this one), and it will feature Nightmare Mode Terror From Beyond, New Guild Bonuses (every 5 active players in the guild will add an additional 1% bonus to XP and reputation, up to a maximum bonus of 10% each.), Crafters can now craft Underworld gear, and Unified fleet chat channel for each faction to improve group finding.

Another great news is the return of Double XP weekends. From June 22nd and continuing through July 7th, there will be Double XP events and the final one is going to be Independence Day special!

Come July 9, the Nightmare Mode Scum and Villainy as a part of Game Update 2.2.2 will be launching, introducing the new mechanics and unique loot. And on July 23rd, the Relics of the Gree Event will be back for two weeks. Game Update 2.3 will follow August 6th, becoming the biggest update since 2.0 and it will feature new flashpoints, new Daily Area, new Recurring Event as well as graphics revamp. And finally some info on next update to PvP, that's going to be included in Game Update 2.4 (maybe in 2014 or late 2013.)

There is going to be a lot of questions from the community (40 pages of them so far!) and there are mixed responses, some say it's safer to stay silent and most of them take this really positively. We do too!
