Star Wars: The Old Republic to get major update every six weeks


Star Wars: The Old Republic will receive a major update every six weeks, BioWare Austin general manager Matt Bromberg told AusGamer in a new interview.

"We're committed to: about every six weeks, doing a major update for the game," Bromberg said, "which would be a new Warzone, a new Operation, a new Flashpoint, a new event - and to doing that on a really frequent cadence, every six weeks. So we're going to stick to that."

Bromberg also stated that following the game's transition to free-to-play, lapsed subscribers will receive Cartel Coins, the title's in-game currency, as credit.

Star Wars: The Old Republic will go free-to-play this November.

Sounds good, Free-to-play drawing in all the new players, and then the updates every 6 weeks to keep them on the game.

I wish they'd bring this to Console (I know... sacrilege to PC Gamers!) but seeing as I favour my Ubuntu machine to get online a PS3 version of KOTOR would go down a treat!!

I might get slated for this but I'm unhappy with SWToR simply because it doesn't feel like a successor to KotOR, Obsidian have said less than four weeks ago that they would like to work on a true sequel to KotOR 2 and I hope LucusArts lets them so long as they are not rushed this time around. Obsidian have potential to make a great game and I have read about all the cut content from TSL which was astonishingly huge. And I have some issues with EA, I feel that they destroyed BioWare so I hope that if a new KotOR is considered, don't let EA do it!
