BioWare is dropping Patch 3.2: “Rise of the Emperor” into Star Wars: The Old Republic tomorrow, April 28th. Players of the free to play MMORPG will have access to new story, a new planet, and more…provided they have already purchased the Shadow of Revan expansion and have a character at level 60.
The planet of Ziost becomes available for both Republic and Imperial players. This “Gateway to the Empire” planet is being ravaged by the forces of the former Sith Emperor, which creates a growing problem as this Emperor is becoming stronger with each death.
Republic and Imperials will find themselves once again working together to take on a common foe. While I like the return to story the Shadow of Revan expansion brought to the MMORPG, I can’t help but still feel a little sad (and I think other SWTOR players do as well) that so much of the story for a long time has seen the Republic and the Imperials working together. Maybe we’ll see a story soon that promotes the conflict between these two factions a bit more.
Lana Beniko, Minister of the newly formed Sith Intelligence, and Theron Shan, a spy for the Galactic Republic will be your guide through facing off against the Sith Emperor and the growing forces that feed the Emperor’s rise.
