Star Wars: The Old Republic has been under a bit of scrutiny as of late. Many players don’t like what the game has been doing, so seeing new updates and reveals of what’s to come are more important than ever. So, thankfully, the team at Bioware have done just that. Game Update 5.5 has just released, and Bioware has given a very detailed account of everything that’s going along with it. And, we have the highlights for you.
First up! If you’re looking to get double…well…important stuff, then this first week is for you. For from October 10th-17th, you have the chance to get Double XP, Double Command Experience and more. So don’t miss out on your chance to double up!
If you’ve been wanting the Cartel Market to be improved, your wish has been granted! The UI for the market has been updated and overhauled with new functions. Filters and searches have been improved and starting with Shipment 10, you’ll now get an increased chance of a platinum item with every pack opened.
A lot of improvements have been made to facilitate the arrival of the United Forces update. For example, the server screen will only show 5 servers at a time. Don’t worry, you can still scroll for specific ones if you need to. Also for United Forces, the Stronghold Cap has been increased by 10.
Oh, and as for the cinematics for the Strongholds? The first time you go to one as a unique character, they’ll play. And then they won’t come back unless you want to re-watch them via a terminal.
New bonuses, new achievements, new perks for winning certain bouts and quests, and of course, plenty of balances and changes await you in Star Wars: The Old Republic because of Game Update 5.5. So, check out the full Patch Notes and make sure you know exactly what’s been added.
