A sneak peak of the new in-game event running February 12 - February 26 and get ready to uncover the mystery behind an ancient Gree starship hovering over Ilum
A new update (v1.7) for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be launched tomorrow giving players brand new in-game content to experience including Relics of the Gree, a limited time live event occurring across the galaxy, and the Galactic Reputation system, a new way for players progress their characters.
Players will discover the mysteries behind the Grey Secant, an ancient Gree starship that has suddenly appeared over Ilumís Western Ice Shelf. From February 12 to February 26, players can visit the in-game News Terminals located on Carrick Station or Vaiken Spacedock to begin their adventure. The Gree have promised advanced technology, including powerful weapons and armor, to anyone who is brave enough to aid them against an insidious foe who has taken control at the heart of their ship.
The new Galactic Reputation system enables players to earn Reputation points by completing missions for factions such as the Gree, or for military divisions within the Republic and the Empire. The Galactic Reputation system advances characters through six ranks of increasing prestige: Outsider, Newcomer, Friend, Hero, Champion, and Legend. Galactic Reputation is also tied to a character's Legacy, so Reputation points and ranks are shared across all the characters within the same Legacy.
A gameplay video for the new Relics of the Gree in-game live event is now locally mirrored.
