Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith, the MMORPG's upcoming expansion, has locked down its release date to mid-December, giving players new storylines to pursue, a more flexible class system, and other additions.
As the war between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire continues, Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith sees players traveling to Manaan, an underwater world whose abundance of kolto – a potent medical resource that could prove vital for both sides – has caught the attention of the Sith.
The expansion comes with separate Imperial and Republic storylines on the planet which, when completed, grants access to a new base of operations alongside a new area full of daily activities.
Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith Release Date
Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith's release date is set to occur on December 14, 2021, which is when the new Combat Styles system will go live.
It offers more flexibility in terms of class choice, the Tech and Force playstyles acting as the sole limiting factors. This means that you can essentially pick any Advanced Class within those playstyles without having to worry about your initial class pick.
In addition, loadouts offer more customization options while also allowing you to quickly swap between different gear sets.

Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith also sees players exploring the ruined Sith fortress on Elom – both solo and as a Flashpoint – as they track down Darth Malgus, who's rumored to be hunting for ancient artifacts that could play a big role in the future of both the Jedi and the Sith.
The R-4 Anomaly Operation will then become available in early 2022, focusing on stopping an obscure Sith cult from harvesting dangerous technology. A set of quality of life improvements are also on the way, including a new character creation experience, updated visuals for the character sheet, inventory, and more.
The expansion also kicks off a new Galactic Season, called Shadows of the Underworld, as well as the MMORPG's 10th-anniversary celebration, which will continue into 2022.
Star Wars: The Old Republic - Legacy of the Sith's release date is slated for December 14, all subscribers getting free access to the expansion.
