SWTOR Game Update 6.1.2 is Live!

Yes it is time! A new game update for Star Wars: The old republic has hit the servers. With this patch, the developers over at BiWare Austine has added the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally event, along with the Master Mode difficulty for our latest Operation, The Nature of Progress.

The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally will be a recurring event just like Pirate Incursion or Relics of the Gree. Taking place on Dantooine, Tatooine, and Onderon, the All Worlds Rally is your opportunity to dive into the exhilarating world of swoop riding! For those who want to really test their mettle, The Nature of Progress Operation now has Master Mode difficulty.  Gather your allies, step forth, and face new and treacherous challenges!

Check out the rest of the news below:

All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally

The biggest gangs on the circuit — Horizon’s Razor, the Pit Screamers, and the Blatant Beks — are ready to show their fans a great time. Each gang has a repeatable Daily Mission for the courses on Dantooine, Tatooine, and Onderon. When you accept a Daily Mission, you’ll hop on one of the gangs’ special swoop bikes and use its abilities to take on challenges suited to each gang’s tastes. But that’s not all! Each planet features its own dangerous hazards, turning up the difficulty on the courses. Hit all the course objectives before crossing the finish line, and the crowd’s going to love you!

Outside these repeatable challenge courses, you’ll unlock three story Missions for each gang as you progress through their reputation tracks. The more they trust you, the more you’ll become part of the inner circle and learn more about each gang, their history, and some of their high-profile members. These short, but fun, interludes highlight your induction into the thrilling world of swoop bikes!

Nature of Progress–Master Mode Difficulty

Gather your strongest allies, as the enemies inside the CI-004 Research Facility grow more cunning and resilient. Caution is heavily advised; you never know what could be lurking in the shadows…

New and unique rewards await those who can overcome the challenge! New Set Bonuses have a guaranteed chance to drop from the various Bosses within the Operation. A fortunate few can even walk away with awe-inspiring Stronghold Decorations or the fierce Bantam Dxun Reaper.

Galactic Guide

The new Galactic Guide has also been added with this update and can be found near the chat panel when first logging in. This new feature is broken up into three parts:

  • Can’t remember where the character you haven’t played in awhile left off? Your lowest level Story Mission is displayed in the top panel. Clicking it opens directly to that Mission in the Mission Log to re-acquaint yourself with your character’s next Story Mission. If you’ve completed every Story Mission, future Story additions will show up here right when you login! This way you’ll always know when the adventure continues.
  • The current Conquest is featured in the middle panel. Clicking this takes you straight to the Personal Conquest screen so you always know what events are available for that week.
  • Lastly, the current Featured Offer is shown in the bottom panel. This could range from highlighting sales, discounts, or new items.

Game Update 6.1.2 is now live! Take on the breakneck challenges of the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally or the heightened foes of The Nature of Progress at your own risk.
