Game Update 2 will include three major content pieces as well as a full 'Legacy' system, which is already unlocked but provides no perks yet. March heralds a new world - Denova.
This shiny new planetoid to visit hosts an 8-16 man Operation and a new Warzone to tear up. Game Update 2 also sports Rise of the Rakghouls Part 2, a continuation of the pesky plague.
"We might also be able to get some new space game missions into it. In addition to that we have single player content that you'll be able to go through as well..." teased game director James Ohlen. Game Update 1 goes live today on US and EU servers and features level 50 bracketing for PvP Warzones, anti-aliasing and tweaks to PvP on Ilum.
The Legacy system is highly anticipated as it will reward users for having many characters. "It's a system that really benefits players who like to play alts - instead of having characters who have no relation to each other you can create a family, and when you're playing any member of that family you earn experience points for your Legacy tree," explained Ohlen.
"Those then unlock abilities and perks that help improve all your characters. I think that's going to be popular. Characters can be related to your main character in all kinds of ways - siblings, father, son, friend, you could be married to them..."
PvP rankings and Guild Banks are on the agenda too. Are you primed for today’s major update?
