It has been a few troubling months for the first BioWare MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic. With talks of going free-to-play on the cards, many are hesitant to put down their monthly payment in hopes of not having to pay. However this isn't stopping the game updates from coming through, with the latest one titled Terror From Beyond, featuring a new operation plus new weapons and armour.
Operation: Terror From Beyond will take you to the remote world of Asation where the mysterious Sith Lords known as the Dread Masters have found a way to unlock the ancient Gree Hypergate, opening a door to an unknown place and an unspeakable horror that now threatens the entire galaxy. It will be your mission to close the portal before it’s too late and to destroy whatever gets through.
New Weapons and Armor to upgrade your characters’ effectiveness and appearance with the Legendary Dread Guard gear.
Improved Group Finder lets you join a group for an Operation or Flashpoint and return to your previous location when you’ve completed the mission.
Unify Colors for Companions allows you to select an option to match all your companion’s gear to his or her chest piece for a more stylish look.
New ‘Facial Expression’ Emotes is a new set of slash commands that allow you to set your character’s expression. Let the rest of the galaxy know how you really feel.
