Electronic Arts has released a new update for its free-to-play MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic. According to the company, this Game Update brings some exciting new content to The Old Republic including the Warzone: The Ancient Hypergate – that lets players test their strength with a brand new PvP game mechanic – and the Heroic Space Missions that will challenge your galactic piloting skills.
In the Warzone: The Ancient Hypergate, Republic and Empire forces are locked in a brutal conflict to control two energy pylons. You must fight to take control of these powerful pylons and kill any foes in your way to discharge a massive blast of energy through your faction’s gate. The first team to open their portal will unleash deadly reinforcements to wipe out enemy players.
In the Heroic Space Missions, both Republic and Empire classes have six new repeatable Level 50 Heroic Space Missions. These updated Space Missions are the most intense Space Missions to date and players who are up to the challenge can earn Black Hole Commendations to spend on ship upgrades, high level gear, and more.
Game Update 1.6: Ancient Hypergate also includes a number of minor fixes and changes to the game. As with other Game Updates, the patch will download automatically the next time you log in through your game launcher.
