EA, Bioware and Lucas Arts have just announced the latest patch for Star Wars: The Old Republic, titled Patch 1.2 - Legacy. Going live in April 2012, Legacy will introduce new high level group content and community-requested features including PvP Warzone Rankings and Guild Banks, along with enhancements to the game’s innovative Legacy system.
Game Update 1.2 presents the next evolution of the Legacy system. Players can now link their different characters together into a single family tree, giving them the power to unlock and share special Legacy-only abilities.Along with Legacy changes, BioWare announced Star Wars: The Old Republic’s “Friends Trial” program, allowing subscribers to invite as many as three of their friends for a seven-day free game trial. Among these large changes is also UI customisation, a much sought after feature from current subscribers, giving players a more personal way of sorting their UI. Also in patch 1.2 there will be three new pieces of content, a Flashpoint, a Warzone and a Operation, each with their own backstory.
As well as the news of Patch 1.2, Bioware is also conducting a Star Wars The Old Republic Guild Summit (thanks Beanith), the first of it's kind. Guild representatives will participate in roundtable feedback discussions with developers, and will get a preview of some upcoming game features.
This event will provide an opportunity for attendees to voice their feedback directly to the teams responsible for the design of Star Wars: The Old Republic, hear the team's thoughts and reasons behind design decisions, and discuss the current direction of the game.
You can check out the full list of upcoming features over here in the press release, as well as the trailer below detailing all that's to come in Patch 1.2.
