Bioware, to celebrate 10 years of Star Wars: The Old Republic presented a little surprise Legacy of the Sith, the next big one expansion of the game. In this way, the American developer somehow anticipates the busy schedule of appointments that EA will hold in the coming weeks, which will culminate with the EA Play Live 2021 on July 22nd.
Bioware, on the other hand, will not participate directly in the event: after the news of SWTOR it will concentrate on the creation of Mass Effect and Dragon Age, still far from publication.
In honor of the upcoming 10th anniversary of Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioWare has unveiled Legacy of the Sith. Legacy of the Sith will again build on the dynamic plot of Star Wars: The Old Republic: players will take part in a military campaign aimed at protecting a planet that, having discovered the final plan of the Sith renegade Darth Malgus, has proved vital to their faction.
The expansion also features improvements to the SWTOR player experience with the new feature, Combat Styles, which expands the options for them, and with a series of quality of life updates. Star Wars fans will have the opportunity to rediscover the award-winning story of Star Wars: The Old Republic within Legacy of the Sith this season on PC via SWTOR.com and Steam, kicking off the 10th anniversary celebration that will run throughout 2022 and will introduce new content, events, updates and more.
Legacy of the Sith will take players on an adventure to the edge of the galaxy, including the water planet of Manaan, in search of Darth Malgus. The main update will increase the maximum number of levels players can reach from 5 to 80. The toughest challenges ever in Star Wars: The Old Republic will also be introduced by new collaborative missions, including a Flashpoint set in a tomb in a mountaintop on the remote planet Elom, and an operation that takes place among the remains of a research station in deep space.
The latest expansion will introduce the new Combat Styles feature, which further expands SWTOR’s deep custom experience. Combat styles will allow players to realize their ultimate Star Wars fantasy, independently choosing a specific class story and combining it with skill sets from other tech classes or related weapons.
Old and new players can also expect improvements in the creation of their next Star Wars character, through a system of perfected character creation. Updates to item and equipment experiences and streamlined class design also further enhance the Star Wars: The Old Republic experience for all players.
