The now free-to-play MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, has received another update that updates the game with more missions, goals, and equipment for players to attempt to get.  While my time with The Old Republic ended a long time ago, I do like what they are doing with this title and keeping new content coming.  Keeping their core base happy with constant information and updates are a good way to set up future updates and even future titles if it comes to it.


‚ÄčToday, EA and BioWare are excited to release Game Update 2.3: Titans of Industry featuring two brand-new story-driven Level 55 Flashpoints, a new Ewok companion, Tauntaun mounts, and more in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!
