Star Wars: The Old Republic Update 1.6 'Ancient Hypergate' trailer

EA marks the launch of its latest major update with new gameplay footage

EA has released a new trailer to mark the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic Game Update 1.6, entitled 'Ancient Hypergate'.


Here's the official blurb on what update 1.6 brings:

"Warzone: The Ancient Hypergate lets you test your strength with a brand new PvP game mechanic. In this Warzone, Republic and Empire forces are locked in a brutal conflict to control two energy pylons. You must fight to take control of these powerful pylons and kill any foes in your way to discharge a massive blast of energy through your faction's gate. The first team to open their portal will unleash deadly reinforcements to wipe out enemy players.

"Heroic Space Missions will challenge your galactic piloting skills. Both Republic and Empire classes have six new repeatable Level 50 Heroic Space Missions. These updated Space Missions are the most intense Space Missions to date and players who are up to the challenge can earn Black Hole Commendations to spend on ship upgrades, high level gear, and more.

Update 1.6 is available to download now. Star Wars: The Old Republic went officially free-to-play on November 16. Players are able to play through the stories of all eight classes in the game and develop characters to level 50.
