UI scaling, guild banks, Legacy updates, and new Warzones all teased in The Old Republic video

Shares

Vacation? Recreation? A developer craves not these things. Or... at least that's what we're guessing BioWare's mantra is as it rolls past its first update and plans for the future of The Old Republic. In a video released today, the developer details some of the big changes coming to the Star Wars MMO, from small "quality of life" updates to new PvP arenas to slay our opponents in.

Most of this information we already knew. BioWare had already said that updates were coming to the Legacy system, and we were told a few weeks back that a new Warzone was in the work. Still, it's good to actually see the developer show off changes to little things, like the UI, to prove that it's listening to its customers. Now, all BioWare needs to do is add rideable tauntauns to Hoth and we'll talk about changing our review score...

There aren't any dates on any of these improvements, but we're holding out hope that they're due out in the near future. We'd hate to have to wait a long, long time from now to see features added that sort of should have been in the game at launch.

    srly, i love bioware and all but wtf, "[the people] decide what changes get made to the game" ? there are like 200 forum posts all asking-with various levels of civility and patience-them to put the max graphics setting that was in the betas back into the game. and yet, there is absolutely no mention of it, with the only official response being a bioware forum post essentially saying "we may or may not look into it"...

    I'm guessing that the Legacy system won't be locked by race, so your Sith Pureblood can be your Twi'lek's sister?

    I had thought about that, too. I made one of each race so, either all my "legacy" characters are from the same orphanage/foster family or else there was a lot of inter-racial luvin's going on. :P
