Bioware and Lucas Arts announced today that the next update for their lightsaber filled MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, is now available. While this latest updated (dubbed Allies) doesn't bring much in the way of new content, it strives to add features that the community felt were missing from the beginning.
The biggest addition is the new Group Finder, which will help any struggling servers join forces to take on the ever menacing flashpoints. Also included is the long-awaited Ranked PVP Warzones, Adaptive Gear, new Legacy System enhancements plus more.
“We are living up to our commitment in setting a new bar for what players should expect from a premium MMO service,” said Matthew Bromberg, General Manager of BioWare Austin. “In just six months, we have already released three major game updates that have added new content and game features that have addressed the feedback from our fans. And we are just getting started. By the end of this year, we are adding more Warzones, more Flashpoints, more Operations, more updates to the Legacy System, new companions, new storylines and more. We are very excited about the future.”
