Star Wars: The Old Republic’s early access to the Galactic Strongholds expansion
has been delayed, according to a letter from senior producer Bruce Maclean on the official website.
The expansion was set to add player housing to the game in the form of Strongholds, as well as Guild Flagships - huge flying bases where you can convene. According to Maclean, subscriber early access has been moved from June 24 to August 19 so the development team at Bioware can add more features such as a Tatooine Homestead stronghold, and more. He states that for GS to truly feel like an expansion, "it needs to include the full set of features including those originally coming later in the year."
BioWare has also moved the deadline date for subscribers who are looking to get early access rewards. It's now July 15th instead of May 11th, meaning that you'll need to sub up by the former date if you want the Nar Shaddaa Sky Palace with three additional rooms and the other promised goodies. After the August 19th subscriber early access period, preferred early access and the official launch will follow in September and October.
