Polish your lightsaber and prepare your hyperdrive motivator because the 7.0 expansion is coming to the galaxy. Legacy of the Sith is less than a parsec away, so it’s time to take a closer look at the new Star Wars: The Old Republic content. Will the Force be strong in this one?
It’s hard to believe that Star Wars: The Old Republic has been with us for over a decade. The BioWare Edmonton’s MMORPG debuted on December 20, 2011. Its story is set almost 4000 years before the events shown in Star Wars movies. In this period, the galaxy is divided between two powerful factions – the Sith Empire and the Galaxy Republic. The player’s character may join either of them to become a mighty Sith Warrior, Jedi Knight, or acquire proficiencies in tech rather than the Force.
SWTOR Legacy of the Sith
The Legacy of the Sith plot continues the storyline presented by the Onslaught expansion. Consequently, the player traverses the galaxy in pursuit of Darth Malgus. This time your chase takes you to the ocean world of Manaan. You’ll explore its underwater facilities and fight for control of the planet. Legacy of the Sith update also introduces a new base of operations and a new daily area. Elom is another planet presented by SWTOR 7.0 update. A recently discovered ancient Sith Fortress is the reason why you should explore this icy planet. Some say that the ruins hide secrets crucial to the future of both the Jedi and the Sith. This storyline can be played either solo or as a multiplayer experience. You may take a glimpse at the planets Manaan and Elom in the SWTOR Legacy of the Sith trailer.
The new level cap and other changes
The SWTOR 7.0 update brings some essential changes. First of all, it raises the level cap. Thanks to the Legacy of the Sith expansion, players’ characters can reach level 80 instead of the current 60. Moreover, revamped character creation is going to be introduced. Players should also enjoy the Legacy of the Sith combat styles because the 7.0 update extends the customization by separating class story from gameplay style. It means that your character can choose any Advanced Class within their playstyle. If you’ve always wanted to play as a Jedi who can make good use of some forbidden Dark Side techniques or be a Trooper wielding a sniper rifle, the Legacy of the Sith expansion makes it possible.
Legacy of the Sith release date
Initially, the SWOTR Legacy of the Sith release date was set to December 14, 2021, because the expansion was supposed to be a part of the game’s 10th anniversary. However, it was postponed. Keith Kanneg, the SWOTR Project Director, explained that the delay was a tough but necessary decision because the team needed some additional time for testing. As a result, Legacy of the Sith is coming out on February 15, 2022. It will be available as a free update for all SWTOR subscribers.
