Star Wars: The Old Republic is one of the largest MMORPGs in existence today, rivaling infamous classics like World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. Like most successful MMOs, Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR, for short) has enjoyed long-lasting support since its launch nearly 10 years ago. And it's that milestone that Bioware is seeking to celebrate, by announcing the Legacy of The Sith expansion for SWTOR, launching towards the end of this year.

Legacy of The Sith is a huge expansion for SWTOR, and will add a ton of new content and features for new and existing players alike. There will be all-new campaign missions and storylines, more advanced character customization and gameplay styles, new rewards and challenges, and major enhancements and quality-of-life improvements all across the board.

It doesn't end with the release of Legacy of The Sith, however, as Bioware intends to follow up with an extended 10-year anniversary celebration throughout 2022 with new updates and further improvements to the game, including further system changes, UI improvements, and even visual upgrades.
