SWTOR 7.1

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s latest patch, “Digging Deeper,” will launch today, August 2. Servers will be down from 8 AM to 12 PM CT ( 1 PM - 5 PM UTC ) to deploy the update. While servers are down, why not learn more about what’s to come in SWTOR’s latest patch?

In Digging Deeper’s story update, players will uncover a glimpse of Darth Malgus’s mysterious plans as well as the fate of Sa’har Kateen, the Jedi Padawan he dueled in the ancient ruins of Elom. Then, in the R-4 Anomaly Operation, players will need to team up with friends to take on members of an obscure Sith cult bent on harvesting technology from an ancient weapon of terrifying power.

In Patch 7.1 players can enjoy several changes to classes that will improve balance across all Combat Styles. Four new tactical items are now available at the Supplies vendor on the Republic and Imperial Fleets. In addition, the Character Window, Weapons in Outfitter, combat style icons, and added customization options to chat and subtitles have all received user interface enhancements.

In other exciting news, the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event has returned. Starting with the launch of 7.1 until September 13 at 12 PM UTC, players can test their luck at one of the casinos and earn the new High Roller Weapons.

To players who would like to read a more in-depth explanation of general changes coming with SWTOR's latest patch, please make sure to check out the official patch notes, here.
