SWTOR's Summer Plans
ByDate: Jun 19 2013 Views:
Do you play Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR)? BioWare wants you to keep playing and they’re adding plenty of summer events and content to keep you away from the outside world. The first batch of news on the calendar are more Double XP Weekends, the first of which starts Friday, June 21st. Two more events are planned to take place on the weekends of June 28th and July 4th.
The first weekend starts on June 21st at 2:00 p.m. EDT and runs until 3:00 a.m. EDT on June 24th, while the second weekend runs at the same hours from June 28th to July 1st. The third and final weekend starts at 7:00 a.m. EDT on July 4th and runs all the way until July 8th at 3:00 a.m. EDT, which should give you ample time over the holiday to buff up your levels.
But what’s XP without a little bit of new content? You can expect to see the first of that on July 9th with the launch of Nightmare Mode for Scum and Villainy in Update 2.2.2 followed by the return of the Relics of the Gree event on July 23rd. On August 6th Update 2.3 goes live and add new Flashpoints, a new Daily Area color improvements, and recurring Bounty Contract Week event.
