Star Wars: The Old Republic Trailer: Building a Better Stronghold

Since it became a free-to-play MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic has seen a complete overhaul. With this new Galactic Strongholds expansion, players will have brand new ways to customize their Jedi and Sith characters.

Housing comes to The Old Republic in form of Strongholds. A new trailer for the expansion aired during EA’s Gamescom 2014 press conference, and it showcases all of the different ways a player can deck out whatever stronghold they decide to occupy. Four planets have strongholds for player use, including Tattooine, Coruscant, Nar Shadda, and Dromund Kaas. We see some strongholds built as a hangar for starships, while others go for a more opulent look with giant statues and expensive-looking decor. The player gets full reign to design the room as they see fit.

We like that Star Wars: The Old Republic is still going strong after its less-than-stellar launch in December of 2011. The move to free-to-play turned out to be a wonderful idea. If you’re one of those still playing SWTOR, we hope you’re looking forward to this new expansion.

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Galactic Strongholds Expansion hits Early Access on Aug. 19, with a full launch to follow soon after.
