As Old Republic turns a month old next week, all of the game’s galactic inhabitants are about to get a new content update, entitled “Rise of the Rakghouls.”
The update will feature a number of mechanic tweaks, and a new Flashpoint, exclusive to level 50 players.
Kaon Under Siege is the title of the new Flashpoint. As the story goes, Kaon is suffering a Rakghoul outbreak and players have been tasked with neutralizing the outbreak and eliminating the Rakghouls.
General Manager and Bioware co-founder, Greg Zezchuk commented on the upcoming content release, “Rise of the Rakghouls adds a lot of the things our community has been asking for – additional higher level group content, features like anti-aliasing, PvP bracketing and more. In the future, game updates will be even more substantial, as we promise to continue to not only add to The Old Republic, but to also improve and refine the experience with the full Legacy System and new Guild features.”
Rise of the Rakghouls launches on January 17th.
