New Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion “Galactic Strongholds” announced

star wars the old republic Galactic Strongholds

You heard that right folk’s. BioWare just announced the next expansion for SWTOR titled “Galactic Strongholds”.

This new expansion brings customizable player housing known as strongholds to the game, as well as Guild capital ships!

You will be able to acquire multiple Strongholds on different planets and customize them yourself. To start you’ll have options to set up on your faction’s capital world, the gambling planet Nar Shaddaa, or both. Decorating your crib can get you Prestige score, which can rise you to the top of the Stronghold Directory. Aside from the benefits of living stylishly, having a stronghold will let you transport friends directly to it so you can kick back and socialize.

Guilds will also be able to launch Flagships when the expansion officially releases, though that functionality won’t be enabled for the early access.

Here’s the official blurb:
In Galactic Strongholds, players can live on multiple planets and customize their prestigious apartments. Players can live in the heart of their faction’s capital world, live in style among the high-rollers of Nar Shaddaa, or even both by owning multiple Strongholds. Hundreds of unique decorations will be available for players to express their own personal style, as well as to boost their Prestige score to compete for top ranking in the Stronghold Directory. Friends can be invited and transported to a player’s Stronghold from any in-game location to socialize. At official launch, Guilds will also be able to launch powerful Guild Flagships where members can meet, plan, and strategize for their next adventure.
