Although BioWare announced legacy system in Star Wars: The Old Republic long time ago, not many details were unveiled about this system. Now in a recent interview with Gamespot, the game's director James Ohlen shed more light on the legacy system, which allows players to create alts, developing relationships between their characters, just like a family tree.
"We wanted to have a system that encouraged players to create alts and to play the game through the different story paths," he said. "So the legacy system is meant to do that. It essentially allows you to, instead of just having a bunch of alts that have no relation to each other, you can actually create a family tree where your alts can be related to your main character, either as, you know, a sibling, a son, a father, a family friend, or a husband and wife."
"You can actually choose the relationship your characters will have with each other. And then you gain legacy experience points and legacy levels, and with legacy experience points and levels, that gives you–that allows you to unlock abilities, perks, a whole slew of different advantages, essentially, that all the members of your legacy tree will be able to enjoy."
Players will unlock the legacy system at the end of chapter one, which is around level 30. BioWare wants to "push [the system] towards players who enjoy the level-up game", and it will "make leveling up even more enjoyable and allow you to customize your leveling experience."
