SWTOR Galactic Strongholds Expansion Brings Housing and Rewards


Just as BioWare had teased a couple of weeks ago, Star Wars: The Old Republic is getting player housing and it will make its way to the game through SWTOR Galactic Strongholds expansion.

This summer is really going to get hot in the space – okay maybe that expression doesn’t go with the space, but hey, you guys are going to get your very own apartments!

The official website of Star Wars: The Old Republic recently made a post to announce specific features of the Galactic Strongholds expansion:

In Galactic Strongholds, players can live on multiple planets and choose a prestigious apartment in the heart of the faction’s capital world, live in style among the high-rollers of Nar Shaddaa, or both by owning multiple Strongholds.

Hundreds of unique decorations will be available for players to express their own personal style, as well as to boost their Prestige score to compete for top ranking in the Stronghold Directory.

Also, you will be able to show off your Strongholds to your friends by inviting them over for general socializing reasons. They can be called in from any in-game location.

When the DLC goes live, Guilds will also be allowed to launch Guild Flagships i.e. rendezvous points of the members so that they can strategize their next moves.

That is not all!

The developers are super excited about the expansion and they wish to celebrate their joy with the fans who love spending time with The Old Republic.

A long list of rewards, based on the subscribing date of the players, has been announced. It’s nothing but lucrative:

SWTOR Galactic Strongholds is going to be a digitally distributed free to play expansion, I guess that leaves little doubt in our mind about whether we are going to try it out or not.

And I am not even counting the leisure of having an apartment in the middle of the faction capital.
