You’ll never guess what’s happening to whom in Star Wars: The Old Republic’s newest update, Jedi Under Siege. Believe it or not, the Jedi are — get this — under siege. For real. Oh, you knew that already? Fine, spoil all our fun.BioWare’s epic Star Wars saga, which picks up on the “desolate Jedi planet” Ossus, where new storylines will allow players to either “fight for [their] original faction . . . or secretly change [their] loyalties and undermine [their] former allies at every turn.”
The game’s guild system will receive lots of love as well: There’s now a guild progression system, and as guilds level up, they can unlock new guild perks that can be slotted “into various rooms on their Guild Flagship,” thus providing an array of bonuses such as “higher XP, CXP, and Reputation rewards.”
And players looking for the ultimate challenge will find it in the new master mode of the Gods from the Machine operation. Those who are able to band together and triumph over the operation’s five uber-tough bosses will be handsomely rewarded with resources that can be used to craft powerful masterwork armor. Good luck, players, and may the force be with you.
