Game Update 1.6: Ancient Hypergate is now live in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™

This Game Update brings some exciting new content to The Old Republic™ including: 

  •          Warzone: The Ancient Hypergate lets you test your strength with a brand new PvP game mechanic. In this Warzone, Republic and Empire forces are locked in a brutal conflict to control two energy pylons. You must fight to take control of these powerful pylons and kill any foes in your way to discharge a massive blast of energy through your faction’s gate. The first team to open their portal will unleash deadly reinforcements to wipe out enemy players.
  •          Heroic Space Missions will challenge your galactic piloting skills. Both Republic and Empire classes have six new repeatable Level 50 Heroic Space Missions. These updated Space Missions are the most intense Space Missions to date and players who are up to the challenge can earn Black Hole Commendations to spend on ship upgrades, high level gear, and more!

Game Update 1.6: Ancient Hypergate also includes a number of minor fixes and changes to the game. You can read about all the details in the Game Update 1.6 Patch Notes. As with other Game Updates, the patch will download automatically the next time you log in through your game launcher.
