Despite all the new projects on its plate, Bioware is still focused on its free to play online RPG Star Wars: The Old Republic and will continue to add new features to the game. One of those is the upcoming Galactic Strongholds expansion which will allow you to create strongholds and command guild flagships.
Strongholds are essentially personalized domains where you can show off your various items and conquests. You can choose different strongholds on planets like Tatooine, Dromund Kaas, Nar Shaddaa and Coruscant. The Guild Flagships are essentially large capital ships which your entire guild can travel in. They’re incredibly snazzy overall.
Not much information has been given on when Galactic Strongholds will go live but EA is promising early access on August 19th. Given the relatively strong user base, will Star Wars: The Old Republic continue to thrive? We’ll find out in the coming weeks.
