swtor Star Wars: The Old Republic hits 1.6   Ancient Hypergate with Trailer / Screens

As Star Wars: The Old Republic has transitioned to a free-to-play model there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t take it for a spin yourself!  Today we get a trailer that announces the new PvP Warzone entitled Ancient Hypergate.  We also get some screenshots and video of the Level 50 Heroic Space Missions.  After you check out the video, you can simply patch up to 1.6 and take them for a spin yourself!   If you missed the announcements we ran on the Free-to-Play model, here is a nibble on a few of the things you get by continuing (or renewing) your subscription:

  • The Cartel Market will offer a variety of in-game items including cosmetically customizable gear and convenience features that will enhance the game play experience. Subscribers will receive Cartel Coin rewards for every past and ongoing month of subscription.

Amazingly, the free option still grants you access to literally hundreds of hours of content for absolutely nothing.  As the holiday season cools off, come celebrate the 1 year celebration of SWTOR and find out for yourself.
