Upcoming SWTOR content revealed

Bioware have released a little taster of upcoming content in SWTOR. It’s a presentation by James Ohlen, which you can watch below, but the highlights disclosed are:

– Rise of the Rakghouls content is in two parts and has been worked on for around a year
– PvP is a big focus, with a ranking system and new Warzone
– A ‘Family Tree’ function allowing new characters you create to be linked with your other characters, with associated benefits as far as abilities and powers
– Guilds get some love with guild banks
– And yes – interface customisation is coming!

There’s no timeline specific for all this except that it’ll be occurring over “coming months”, but it at least provides a roadmap for some key features.

Anyway, have a look:

Over to you: do these features really start to make SWTOR a polished MMO or is there other stuff you are still desperately waiting for?


  1. Love SWTOR, but the development team needs good management. Get rid of the incompetent people, hire experienced people-poach Blizzard staff-, listen to the players and don’t rush your patches.

  2. As an MMO goes I think they’re on the right track. Yay for free future content. There is some big clan updates I’d love to happen. Also I wish that space would get some loving. Let us do smuggling runs, have guild ships, and possibly even free flight (maybe not, probably wouldn’t work the best) but as space was a huge part of the characters life, why shouldn’t it be in our gameplay?

  3. I would like to have more playable character types and races. Eg. The race of Jedi Master Kit Fisto and Jedi Master Plo Koon.

  4. Sorry, but the current Blizzard shouldn’t manage a lemonade stand.
