SWTOR’s Rise Of The Rakghouls Update Goes Live

For those hardcore players who have already hit the level cap, today’s content update for Star Wars: The Old Republic couldn’t have come soon enough. For the rest of us, it’s right up there with magenta lightsabers and Hard Mode loot – just one more reason to look forward to end-game.

Titled Rise of the Rakghouls, Episode 1.1 delivers a slick new package of high-level content, including a new Flashpoint called “Kaon Under Siege,” which takes you and three allies to the Rakghoul-infested planet of Kaon. Check out a preview of the action – and the enemies – in the trailer below:

Rise of the Rakghouls also brings a massive expansion to Karagga’s Palace, more than tripling the size of the Operation as a whole. Bounty hunters, battle droids, and brand new loot await top level players.

In addition to expanding the game’s end-game content offerings, Episode 1.1 will also address balancing issues, exploits, and bugs throughout the game, improving the overall in-game experience. Check out the patch notes for all the gritty details.
