This update is really focusing on player features giving Star Wars adventurers the opportunity to set themselves up in their own “Stronghold” which will allow them to craft furniture and customise their abode with different types of decorations. These apartments can be created in a player’s faction capital world or Nar Shaddaa. They say that “your Legacy can own multiple Strongholds”.

Guilds are also getting some love with the Guild Flagships where they can gather aboard their own ships as part of their faction’s fleet.

More details are expected in due course but watch the new video which highlights all of the above if you’re actually still playing the game.
