Star Wars: The Old Republic Rise of the Rakghouls Update Coming Next Tuesday

on January 14, 2012 8:05 PM

Today you can finally read my own review (and watch the video review, featuring Dianna’s lovely voice) of Star Wars: The Old Republic, but BioWare is already on the move to add more to the game. The first major content update, numbered 1.1 and titled Rise of the Rakghouls will include the new endgame story-driven flashpoint Kaon under Siege and will expand the Karagga’s Palace operation with four new bosses.

The good news is that it’ll also come soon, as it will hit the live servers on next Tuesday, January the 17th. Together with the new content the patch will also bring a boatload of improvement and fixes (that I alrerady wrote about here, and that BioWare further expanded with this list).

The fact that BioWare is already adding new content to the game isn’t surprising, considering that they recently revealed that they are already at work on goodies that won’t be released until 2013. I can only imagine what wealth of content is already sitting in their computers. While we wait for this update to reach our own PCs, you can enjoy the official trailer of Kaon under Siege below.
