It appears I am the only one here who still plays the game (which is unsurprising, since I’m one of the few who don’t give a Bantha’s backside about how horrible the owning company is [insert EA bashing here]), however I’ll post this anyway.

SW:TOR has a new expansion coming up, called “Galactic Strongholds”. The namesake of this expansion is the Stronghold feature, which is basically TOR’s equivalent of housing. They will most probably be Legacy unlocks and they can be built on three planets. Coruscant (Republic), Dromund Kaas (Empire) and Nar Shaddaa. It is unbeknownst to me if they will be available in other locations, but here’s hoping for a Belsavis Stronghold (I love Belsavis).

A second feature of the new expansion will be Guild Flagships. Basically what a fortress is on other games or what a Starbase is on STO, Flagships will be built by the entire Guild and will offer special benefits to the members. Empire-side, I’m pretty sure they will be Harrower-class (badass doorstopper) dreadnoughts, Republic-side they’ll probably be that batshit ugly ship the Republic calls a dreadnought.

Apparently, there will also be a Bantha mount, which will probably look good with the Sandpeople Pillager armour.

Read more (not much more) here!

PS: It seems EA learned after their mistake "Rise of the Hutt Cartel" and this expansion is free, like "Galactic Starfighter". Here's to more brains from now on....
