Star Wars: The Old Republic Galactic Expansion & Player Housing is Just a Week Away

It’s been quite some time since we’ve been hearing of Galactic Strongholds expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic and the inclusion of player housing.

BioWare made a brief appearance at Gamescom Cologne, showcasing a new trailer detailing Galactic Strongholds which is scheduled to be available by next week.

The expansion will allow players to build their own apartments which can further be customized using a wide array of decorations. Doing so will also increase players’ Prestige Score which would enable them to contend for the top rank in the Stronghold Directory.

Not only this, but the expansion will also bring Guild Flagships; a place where different guild members can meet up, chat, and have fun.

BioWare has announced that the Galactic Strongholds will be available for long-term subscribers on Aug. 19, 2014, to players with preferred status on Sept. 16, 2014, and will finally become available to everyone on Oct. 14, 2014.

And in case you missed the announcement; Galactic Strongholds will be free-to-play for everyone!
