Star Wars: The Old Republic update 1.7 will be released tomorrow, offering players brand-new in-game content.
Relics of the Gree: Discover the mysteries behind the Grey Secant, an ancient Gree starship that has suddenly appeared over Ilum's 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 armour, to anyone who is brave enough to aid them against an insidious foe who has taken control at the heart of their ship.
Galactic Reputation: This new 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.
While the update is rolling out the game servers will be taken offline for around five and a half hours from 9:30am on February 12 until 3:00pm.
