Star Wars: The old Republic

Next Update For Star Wars: The Old Republic Adds Player Housing

The next major update for Bioware’s MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic or as it is more commonly referred as, SWTOR, will bring player housing to the game. The expansion, titled “Galactic Strongholds” will allow players to show off their style as they decorate a custom apartment on the planet of their choice. Players can own multiple strongholds at once, and there will be hundreds of decoration options to make your own intergalactic apartment feel like home sweet home. The update will also bring about Guild Strongholds, which basically act as a main base for guild members to meet and interact in. A trailer for the newest content can be seen here.

To celebrate the announcement of Galactic Strongholds, some rewards will be passed out to loyal SWTOR fans. The rewards include cartel coins, a stronghold of your own, and early access to the content starting on July 29th, while the rest of the community will have to wait till the expansion publicly rolls out in august. To be eligible for these rewards, players must either be a subscriber or have Preferred status, which is earned by having spent any real money on the game at any point previously.
