Star Wars: The Old Republic Community Q&A Shares More Details on 1.2, Gives Hope for Pazaak

As every week BioWare published a new community Q&A Session, answering a few questions from the fans and sharing some interesting details about the future of Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Most of them are about the upcoming update 1.2, that is supposed to be a major milestone for the game and will hit on an still unknown date next month. 

A few highlights include the removal of the mandatory passage through the orbital station when going from one’s ship to certain planets, the additions of new emotes as part of the legacy system (including a special dance that will also involve one’s active companion. Raise your had if you didn’t see this one coming) and a large overhaul for end game crafting, with four pages of patch notes about it coming for 1.2 alone.

There’s also a note about further performance improvements, including a “very low” shaders setting coming in 1.1.5, that will help people with slower computers enjoy PvP and crowded areas.

Finally, they hinted to the fact that minigames like the fan favorite Pazaak (a card game playable in Knights of the Old Republic and it’s sequel) could make an appearance, even if no details or timeframes were given.
