Star Wars: The Old Republic's first major content patch has been delayed for the next few days while BioWare works to fix a number of bugs.

Game update 1.1, known as Rise of the Rakghouls, was initially scheduled for release January 17. Now in a post on the TOR community blog, the developers state the patch requires more work due to issues that "were primarily brought to our attention by the diligent players on the Public Test Server Forums."

While no exact date has been given for its later release, it will likely be a few days before we see it.

"The maintenance window for Game Update 1.1 will be rescheduled for some time within the next few days, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."

For information about what this content update - and future patches - have in store for the MMO check out our recent interview with lead PvP designer Gabe Amatangelo.
