It's only been three days since the official release of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and already fans are asking for more information on BioWare's future plans with the MMORPG.
While BioWare has released vague information about what features they will be working on in the coming weeks, they haven't revealed much detail about the actual content – until now. About a week ago, BioWare's James Ohlen revealed some expanded features the dev team is working on, and mentioned new content. Today, he went into more depth as to what the content will be.
In a message posted today, Star Wars: The Old Republic game director James Ohlen discussed some details for the upcoming Flashpoint and expanded Operation planned for release next month.
"The new Flashpoint involves a plague that could have significant repercussions across the galaxy. It takes place on a brand new world and involves some pretty epic battles," Ohlen described.
Unfortunately, Ohlen didn't go into much detail but he did say to "be prepared for something different."
As for the expanded Operation, Ohlen said it "takes the existing Karagga’s palace scenario and more than triples it in size."
"The expanded Operation It includes three new boss monsters and some pretty epic set pieces. You won’t believe the last boss, so we’ve provided an image as a tease," he continued.
Ohlen concluded that this patch coming "early next year is only a taste of what is to come". BioWare plans to continue releasing Flashpoints, Operations, Warzones, and new game systems on a regular cadence.
