It sounds like BioWare is working on endgame content. Joveth Gonzalez , Associate Online Community Manager has some good news for SWTOR fans in the Austin area:
The Star Wars: The Old Republic team is looking for skilled SWTOR players in the Austin area to test out brand new content in the BioWare Austin office. We are looking for players that are experienced with endgame Operations, Warzones, and Flashpoints.
Players that meet this criteria may fill out this survey and qualifying candidates will be contacted for more information.
This is a temporary paid position and will require at least a weekend a month of your time.
This is really cool for those of you who live here in Austin with us- a chance to check out new game content AND get paid for it.
