BioWare Releases SWTOR Update, Celebrates KOTOR’s 10th Anniversary
Developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts released update 2.2.2 for Star Wars: The Old Republic
today. The update features Nightmare Mode Operation: Legions of Scum
and Villainy, the second of two parts to SWTOR’s Operation Nightmare.
Scum and Villainy primarily faces players against the Hutt cartel.
In-game rewards included with the update are a new Titan 6 Containment
mode and the elite Kell Dragon gear set.
The update falls just before the 10th anniversary of BioWare’s 2003
game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. To celebrate this
milestone, EA and BioWare are giving the community a few goodies next
week. SWTOR players can purchase the title “Revan’s Heir” from the
cartel market for 10 cartel coins on July 15. Cartel coins will also be
given away throughout that day on the official SWTOR Facebook page.
Lastly, BioWare creative director James Ohlen will release a blog post
on July 15 that discusses KOTOR and its influence on The Old Republic.
