SWTOR Update 1.2 Goes Live
The Old Republic’s huge 1.2 update is finally live, weighing in at around 600 megabytes and including the highly-anticipated Legacy system, a new Flashpoint, Operation, and Warzone. The update also introduces other game features, including improved UI customization, Guild Banks and useful new in-game items.
Dr. Greg Zeschuk, General Manager of the BioWare Label’s MMO Business Unit and Co-Founder of BioWare, said:
“Not only is Game Update 1.2 the largest update for The Old Republic, but it also addresses a lot of the game features and enhancements our players have been asking for since we launched a little over three months ago, We are incredibly proud of the team for being able to deliver an update of this size and quality, in a relatively short amount of time.”
To celebrate the launch, BioWare is offering the following rewards:
- All subscribers with active game accounts on April 12, 2012 or April 21, 2012 will be rewarded with an in-game Legacy Reward: the Tauntaun Ram Pet via in-game mail.
- New players who subscribe to The Old Republic before April 21, 2012 will also receive the Legacy Tauntaun Ram Pet.
- All active subscribers who have achieved a level 50 character by April 12, 2012 will receive 30 days of game time at no charge as a reward for their loyalty to the game.
- Former subscribers with inactive accounts are invited back to play Game Update 1.2 for up to seven days at no charge starting April 13, 2012.

I’ve already downloaded the update and logged in, and I’m happy to see the improved character texture options, among the many changes. The Force is strong in this update.
