BioWare have just released information of the next digital expansion for Star Wars: The old Republic. Here is the cool thing. It’s Free! Together with this exciting news, BioWare released a new trailer named “Conflict Rising”, that shows space battles with 12v12 dogfights.

The star fighters were always my favorite part of Star Wars Galaxies, so I really am looking forward to this! I have to say that is a Great job by BioWare. Keep the pvp rolling in and it’ll continue to build a lasting appeal for SWTOR. Here’s to hoping for robust joystick support, dogfighting like planetside 2 (more skill based) and a ranked ladder.
