Star Wars: The Old Republic plans eighth anniversary and Life Day festivities

It is perhaps mildly ironic that Star Wars: The Old Republic is now getting rather old in and of itself, since the game is passing the eight-year mark. A celebration is due in the game starting on December 17th, with decorations for strongholds centering around both famous lore figures and the various class ships. But that’s not even one of the biggest events in the game, it turns out, since December is just replete with stuff.

This month also sees the return of the Relics of the Gree event, the Rakghoul invasion, and the Bounty Contract week. Players will also be able to take part in the annual Life Day celebration, which includes seasonally appropriate mounts that are somehow equally appropriate a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It’s a bunch of stuff for players to enjoy during the last month of the year, in other words; review the full event schedule and schedule your playtime accordingly.

If this game was SWG+ with their graphics and better combat response, i would be playing this shit for the eight years.

I’m with you. I miss my old guild, and Galatorbria, and community-driven content, and player housing done right.

Well, congratulations to EAWare for lasting this long!

I played at launch, and when the game tanked and got into financial difficulties just 3 months after launch, I was convinced it was going to be shut down pretty quickly. It’s very impressive that is has made it this far, especially considering the relative lack of updates and improvements. Just goes to show the power of a good IP I guess!

Same. Same. I still have nostalgia over the game’s launch, and really miss playing it.

It is extremely upsetting that the Star Wars Christmas Special is not on Disney+

My Dromund Kaas stronghold is still very much decorated for Life Day, from the time I logged out of the game 3-4 years ago. I visit it like once a year and it’s my favorite deco job. Maybe I’ll feel nostalgic enough to log in and get more fluff ‘n stuff!

Log in and take a screenshot and post it. I would love to see it. Better yet send it to Justin for SS Sunday.

I haven’t loaded SWTOR on my new computer yet, but when I do, I most surely will! :)
