BioWare has announced the next game update today- date to be determined and like other game updates, it comes with a new event, new quests and new items.
GET READY TO HELP THE GREE – YOUR PROWESS WILL BE GREATLY REWARDED!
The new game update 1.7 is called “Return of the Glee” and will allow you to play with other Level 50 players or journey alone to assist the Gree in their continual pursuit of information. Rewards will be available to those “brave enough” to help the Gree.
We also noticed there is cartel option to up your reputation gains in the upper right corner. It also looks like they cap your rep gain per week so you can’t grind it all out quickly.
