Star Wars: The Old Republic is an excellent MMO, though it’s been plagued by a few issues that have driven the more hardcore players away from the game over the past few years: a huge lack of endgame content. The developers designed a story-centric MMO with a rich leveling experience that rivaled the best single player RPGs, but what they really failed to take into account in the beginning is that MMOs live and die by their endgame content. People are done with the story and leveling process within a couple weeks and you need something to keep them coming back. Operations, SWTOR’s version of raids, were released eventually but it’s been a long time since we’ve seen new content.
It looks like Star Wars: The Old Republic raiders can rejoice, however, as a brand new operation is coming soon. Bioware stated they were committed to expanding endgame content with the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion, and it seems like they’re making good at that promise. Yesterday, the dev team revealed the first boss in upcoming Gods of War operation.
Update 5.2: War for Iokath as well as the first boss in the Gods of War operation will launch in just under a week on April 11th. The endgame zone will be available for anyone with a level 70 character, but the operation is limited to paid subscribers. Are you guys excited for a new operation in SWTOR?
